I have been an advocate of disintegration of Pakistan and also formation of an independent state for urdu speaking nation living in province of Sindh under the political siege of Punjabi and Sindhi leaders who have been depriving the urdu speaking people of their right to exist freely under a proper identity. Today, urdu speaking nation in Pakistan is treated as second class citizens of Pakistan. People from Karachi are considered as "INDIAN AGENTS" and are therefore labelled as "terrorists and separatists". This was for this reason that MQM (MOHAJIR QAUMI MOVEMENT) was formed in early 80s by ALTAF HUSSAIN, AZEEM TARIQ, DR. IMRAN FAROOQ and others for a free sate for urdu speaking to be called JINNAHPUR. It was Dr. Imran Farooq who had chosen this name.
MQM has history of many crimes back in Pakistan including massive murders of political opponents and physical torture of political workers of other political parties as well as MQM itself who either decided to oppose the policies of MQM´s leadership or openly confronted ALTAF HUSSAIN who is the founder of MQM and is considered to be the main person who calls the shots. Despite the fact that MQM does have a proper advisory council which discusses MQM´s policies but the decision power still rests with ALTAF HUSSAIN. This is why, a firm policy of MQM has been propagated among all the party workers which says "JO QUAID KA GHADDAR HAY , MAUT KA HAQDAR HAY" which means "WHOSOEVER BETRAYS OUR LEADER (ALTAF HUSSAIN) DESERVES TO DIE (i.e. deserves to be killed). When MQM was formed, its main motto was achievement of an independent state for urdu speaking people, that is, conversion of Karachi into an independent state called JINNAHPUR. However, ALTAF HUSSAIN backed out from this motto.
Dr. Imran Farooq was among those MQM´s leaders who wanted to remain committed to the formation of JINNAHPUR. In view of the changes in Pakistan´s political setup after removal of Nawaz Sharif in 1999 and General Musharraf taking power, MQM got the opportunity to find its way into mainstream national politics bacause of General Musharraf who offered lucrative cooperation to MQM in exchange of MQM´s support. ALTAF HUSSAIN accepted the offer of General Musharraf and decided to become part of Musharraf-sponsored coaltion government along with MUSLIM LEAGUE (Q). Dr. Imran Farooq never wanted MQM to become yet another conventional political party doing power politics. Dr. Imran Farooq had wanted JINNHAPUR as per the original manifesto of MQM but ALTAF HUSSAIN was having different plans. Dr. Imran Farooq openly opposed to this new policy of ALTAF HUSSAIN and was threrefore removed from MQM´s main advisory council. Dr. Imran Farooq became a threat for ALTAF HUSSAIN and paid the price. The NEW SCOTLAND YARD UK must also involve officials of MQM stationed at MQM´s headquarters in London in the investigation of Dr. Imran Farooq´s murder. In particular, Saleem Shahzad must be thoroughly interrogated about the said murder for the sole reason that Saleem Shahzad is known for his specialization in such type of murders. Saleem Shahzad has a track record of several murders in Pakistan.
