KARACHI (Web Desk) – The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has accused rival Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP), which is led by MQM defector Mustafa Kamal, of issuing threats to renowned Sufi singer Amjad Sabri, who was shot dead in Karachi on Wednesday.
Nadeem Nusrat, a senior MQM leader, claimed that Sabri had been receiving threats for the last four weeks.
“A conscienceless gang of Khayaban-e-Sahar was threatening Shaheed Amjad Sabri and asking him to visit their place,” he said.
بالکل درست ہے۔ امجد صابری شہید کوچارہفتوں سے خیابان سحر والے بے ضمیر ٹولےکی جانب سے حاضری دینےکی دھمکیاں مل رہی تھیں pic.twitter.com/rVO5X3hnzt

On the other hand, PSP spokesman Iftikhar Alam said the allegations were baseless. Alam said that the PSP had not sought to invite Amjad Sabri to one of it’s upcoming events. He hit back at Nadeem Nusrat, saying that MQM’s politics was based on hatred and violence.
MQM’s Mustafa Azizabadi also expressed similar concerns, however, these were refuted by another MQM defector Dr Sagheer Ahmed who is now part of the Pak Sarzameen Party.
