MQM founder Altaf Hussain requests Indian PM Modi for asylum, financial assistance
LONDON – Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader Altaf Hussain has urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give him asylum and financial assistance and his companions.
The MQM leader, who is facing charges of terrorism in the United Kingdom, made this statement in a video after the police relaxed his bail conditions.
He is due to stand trial in June next year. His passport remains with the UK police as part of his bail conditions and he is not allowed to apply for any travel document unless permitted by the court, Geo new reported.
Lawyers are assessing whether Hussain has breached his bail conditions by requesting the Indian premier for asylum and money while he is set to be trialed in case.
Addressing Modi, Altaf Hussain alleged that his assets, house and offices were seized in Karachi after August 22, 2017.
“If you cannot give me asylum then help me with money,” he said.
