Hate speeches: Court orders to put names of Farooq Sattar, Amir Liaquat and Khalid Maqbool on ECL
The court had declared the accused proclaimed offenders last year. It also ordered the police to detain them and present them before the court within 15 days.
After an anti-Pakistan speech by Altaf Hussain in August last year, the MQM faced a severe crackdown in which many senior party leaders were arrested. Hussain had referred to Pakistan a “cancer for the entire world” and the “epicentre of terrorism”.
The party’s headquarters Nine Zero was also closed after supporters attacked media houses leaving one dead and eight injured, the local media reported.
The MQM-London leader is also wanted in Pakistan in different cases that include charges of terrorism and incitement to violence, among other offences.
The FIA had asked the Ministry of Interior to issue red warrants for the MQM chief, and was subseqently granted permission to write a letter to Interpol seeking a red warrant for Hussain.
On Friday, International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) refused to issue a red warrant for Altaf Hussain.
