Aamir Liaquat announces to leave MQM
KARACHI (Web Desk) – Renowned media celebrity and MQM party member Aamir Liaquat Hussain has announced to leave Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).

Amir was taken into custody on Monday night following an anti-Pakistan speech by MQM supremo Altaf Hussain and was released on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, MQM leader Farooq Sattar has announced that he will be assuming control of the party leadership.

He said MQM has also distanced itself from anti-Pakistan statements made from party offices in London.

While addressing a live press conference, Sattar announced that future decisions will be made by the MQM Rabita Committee in Pakistan.

On Monday, hundreds of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) attacked the offices of different TV channels in Karachi, after MQM chief Altaf Hussain asked them to protest against the censorship of his speeches in the media. One person was killed and several others were left seriously injured, as a result.
