By: Dr Shahid Qureshi

MQM and Blackwater/Xe are US sponsored mafia style mercenary outfits due to their management structure as it is almost the same both groups’ chiefs are out of Pakistan to start with.

“There is no difference between Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and MQM because both are sponsored by India and USA. Sawat type operation against MQM’s ‘Clean Shaven Taliban’ who are supporting Blackwater/Xe is a must because people will support.  President Zardari, the ‘Putin of Pakistan’ can he do anything of for Karachi or he has become a cuddly toy now?”

The recent bombings of a religious procession in Karachi and fire bombings of small businesses miles away from the incident reportedly owned by mostly Sunni Tableghie Jamat a non violent religious group, got all the hall marks of ‘private mercenaries’ Blackwater with the support of MQM. According to reports it is physically not possible for any one attending the procession to go miles away, get special fire bombing chemicals and equipment to set fire 300 hundred shops in Bolton Market. It is only possible if one already knows the timing of the bombings and part of the plot. They targeted a Sunni areas where it is almost impossible for an angry ‘Shia protestor’ to reach from the crime scene keeping in the view the distances. So Shia procession was bombed, Sunni business were burnt down and MQM’s fire engines did not arrive. Seems perfect Blackwater Inc style operation?

Blackwater, MQM’s Plus plan was meticulous and well timed. (a) Timing of the bombing few days before the end of the term of City Government Term. So City Government building burnt down with the record to cover-up corruption?  (b) Selection of the venues to be fire bombed (c) Torching of Light House Market predominantly owned by the Pashtuns who did not pay extortion money to the MQM – Score settled, Job done (d) Torching of Bolton Market mostly business are owned by peaceful Sunni Muslims Memon Community. They refused to be relocated outside the city because shops worth millions. High ups of the current regime allegedly President Zardari & Co had interest in the land to develop and build flats and plazas. (Job done) (e) Why MQM leaders both reportedly Shias Haider Abbas Rizvi and Faisal Sabzwari not in the Ashura procession? (f) Why police and rangers did not stop the arsonists and terrorists? (g) Who ordered them not to act? (h) Remote control bomb was planted in an ambulance which might be carrying a head too? (i) Who is Hasham Al-Zafar (central) and what is his role in the bombing and burning of Karachi? (j) What is his relationship with Saleem Shezad alleged master mind of the operation and why he only reports to Altaf Hussain?

MQM and Blackwater/Xe are US sponsored mafia style mercenary outfits due to their management structure as it is almost the same both groups’ chiefs are out of Pakistan to start with. MQM are the local collaborators of Blackwater/Xe in Pakistan?

According to sources similar kinds of chemicals and fire bombing equipments have been used in Iraq and Lebanon. Pakistan’s security agencies must look into the links between MQM lead City Government and Blackwater.  What kind of assistance they are providing to the mercenaries. City mayor Syed Mustafa Kamal and Governor Sind Dr Ashrat Abad Khan recently visited sensitive institutions of the USA related to protection of US national interests aboard. Why would a mayor of a third world country visit US State Department? Did he inform Pakistani’s foreign ministry? He is on the grooming list. “To his credentials it was Mustafa Kamal who opened the door for the assassins came to kill his ‘uncle’ Azeem Ahmed Tariq, leader of the MQM, as it was an inside job. It sounds like nephew shopped his ‘uncle’ according to a source.

Altaf Hussain’s MQM and his mafia have caused more economic and human losses to Pakistan by strikes and terrorist activities then three wars with India. After the incident on Monday December 28, 2009, three thousand shops were burnt; one thousand were burnt after looting which caused loss of Rs. 60 billion to Pakistani economy. Armed men stopped fire engines for over three hours according to reports. Why?

Elements close to MQM were also allegedly involved in the terrorism, arson, and killings after tragic death of Benazir Bhutto on 27th December 2007. Many analysts believe that it was a dry run by the foreign sponsored elements to separate Karachi from the rest of the country. There is another dimension to the burring of some markets with small business. Some people from land mafia were making hostile offers to these old pre partition businesses.

There are reports that MQM has issued thousands of arms licences to its workers and sympathisers in Karachi and some of the licences might have been issued from other provinces. Disarming of the terrorist groups including MQM in Karachi is necessary to avoid future blackmails.

It is also reported that armed gunmen did not allow fire engines to leave the fire stations. All the fire engines and security cameras are under the control of City Government run by MQM whose leader Altaf Hussain controls this group in a mafia style. Within minutes he blamed ‘Taliban’ for the bombings. How did he know it was Taliban and not Indian RAW or Blackwater/Xe? Altaf Hussain deliberately tried to make this a sectarian issue in his live TV broadcast on a news channel, which matches the agenda of private mercenaries and India.

Asia Times Online reported few years ago during Musharraf era, sources says that, “only US diplomatic intervention stopped General Musharraf from taking strong action against the MQM after he received the report on the recent unrest in which the MQM was implicated. Washington indeed has a powerful southern ally in Pakistan’. After September 11, the United States identified even more with the MQM as it was the only party in Pakistan that widely mourned the attacks on the US, openly condemned the Taliban and al-Qaeda, and launched a powerful campaign in support of the US attack on Afghanistan”.

When President Zardari speak about ‘non state & political actors’, probably he also meant Altaf Hussain too? His long distance proactive and dramatic telephonic speeches are more or less what Lord Nelson said, “If you can’t baffle them with brilliance, dazzle them with bullshit!”. He is never been to Pakistan for more then 15 years but did travel to India on his British passport. Most of the members in mafia style ‘Rabita Committee’ are wanted by Pakistani authorities for heinous crimes.  He hides behind this ‘kangaroo committee’.

A political analyst said, ‘to get ‘poodle status’ in US administration Altaf Hussain exaggerates things beyond imagination. For example, he claimed his supporters in Karachi increased by 10 million in just two years because he claimed to have 20 million supporters in an interview with Edgware Times in November 1998. But in 2001 MQM claimed to have 30 million supporters when MQM send a fax to Reuters on 22 September 2001. “(MQM leader) Altaf Hussain has offered the unconditional support of over 30 million MQM supporters to the U.S. president and the international community,” its London-based international secretariat said in a statement faxed to Reuters on September 22, 2001”.

According to sources, ‘Altaf group is planning and preparing for armed fight with other groups in Karachi. There might be a plan to divide Karachi on ethnic zones as Rehman Malik mentioned in Dera Ismail Khan? The alleged transfer of money from Karachi to London, Germany, Dubai, South Africa, Canada, and United States is alarming. There reports of increase in the arms sale in Karachi seem serious but what are the authorities doing?

So what is Altaf Hussain up to that is a crucial question to political and security leadership to think about. His alleged close links with the Indian agency and also acting like a mercenary force getting orders from foreign masters. It is time for the government of Pakistan to approach its friends and allies to have a clear cut answers about the real Agenda in Pakistan? Crimes of Altaf Hussain and his party MQM are so heinous that he wouldn’t dare step in Karachi even the whole period of Musharraf and now Zardari rule?

Until November 1998 Government of Pakistan was reportedly seeking extradition of Altaf Hussain who was said to be wanted in 50 murders and 150 cases of kidnapping and arson. He said in an interview with a newspaper in 1998, “It is my wish that they take me to trial in a British court then I will tell people nationally and internationally what has been happening in Pakistan.” It was Altaf Hussain and MQM who issued a memo to his workers saying,” if there was war between India and Pakistan, MQM workers will be remain neutral”. Why?

MQM’s deputy chief organiser of district Thatta and his wife were arrested by the police for trafficking 120 kilos of A class drugs   according to a press report on 16th May 2004. Mohamed Ibrahim and his wife Ayesha Soho who is also member of district government were coming from Bolan area of Baluchistan on Jeep number BC 1248 when they were stopped by Dadar Police who discovered 180 kilos of HASH worth millions of from the secret compartments of the jeep. Police has registered a case number 13/2004 report against deputy chief of MQM and his wife for drug trafficking. Area in charge SHO of the area Police confirmed that suspects have confessed they have been also involved in arms trafficking from Kabul and been to Afghanistan three times. Both were sent to Sibi Jail in Baluchistan.

“MQM has been funded with the drug money apart from the extortion money taken from the top businessmen in the name of support” according to a report published by The Frontier Post on December 25, 1998. The report says, “… What is more alarming is that the Narco dollars have been used for funding the (MQM), a responsible source in the provincial government said. He added that such funding was tantamount to fuelling terrorism.” Is the Narco-terror funding still on?

By joining as local collaborator of Blackwater in Karachi MQM has provided the eyes and ears on the ground with smart guns. Even if US-India sponsored ‘Pakistani Taliban’ claim responsibility of Karachi Ashura bombings, the chemicals and smart guns used in burnings of the over 6000 small businesses and loss of Rs. 60 billion have all the hallmarks of Blackwater/Xe.

“There is no difference between Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and MQM because both are sponsored by India and USA. Sawat type operation against MQM’s ‘Clean Shaven Taliban’ who are supporting Blackwater/Xe is a must because people will support.  President Zardari, the ‘Putin of Pakistan’ can he do anything of for Karachi or he has become a cuddly toy now?”

  6. Until we have the attitude that we are going to kick ass and WIN any war,with strong proactive measures, we will piddle defensively like we did in Korea and Vietnam and a stalemate to our disadvantage will be the best we can expect — —-AS USUAL. Politicians are poor statisticians and even worse at logistics. Let our military do the job they know and the politicians take credit for military success as they have historically demonstrated they know how to do.

  7. Dear Brothers n Sisters,we talk about India and USA trying to make us quarrel. We think that the Jews n Christians want to hurt our religion.
    Maybe that is true … but … if you read the above discussion you will find that nobody except ourselves are to be blamed.We start accusing each other of foul play whenever the other person has views that differ from ours.In my VERY humble opinion we need to start respecting each other ,and TRY to get rid of this crap about Karachi-waala’s trying to Grab Balochi’s food, MQM vs PPP vs PML vs whatever.
    I live in Detroit,USA(which is supposed to be one of the most hostile cities in this country). As yet No African American has ever told me that they hate me for being a Sindhi/Kashmiri/Punjabi/Pashtoon/Baloch/whatever.
    I know that in a few days there will be comments declaring me a traitor who is praising USA and its public, but I am not praising nobody. All i am saying is we should open our eyes,and stop hating each other.
    I have never been to Karachi,i’ve never met a single Baloch, so i can not be prejudiced or anything.

  8. Talal you guys are just the most fooled peoples by PPP.
    These PPP peoples just make you fools.They can’t done a tiny amount of work in your areas.
    Your areas MNA even didn’t live in liyari and lives in defense.
    Those peoples just use poor baloch[which are one of the nicest Karacites] to dismantle other parties and in return have just made liyari a gangster/drug smuggler/criminal paradise.
    Can your MNA/MPA vist chakiwaaraa/mosaline/bakraa peeree with there family at 6:00 p.m. alone.
    Go visit with your families at 12:00 midnight on Clifton/PECHS/Nazimabad/FB area/ or any litrate peoples are whom only voted MQM.
    Stop fooling yaar.
    These PPP bastard zulfiqar bhutto is the one who started the NFC award on population bases by which he have stabbed the peoples of Sind.
    Spread truth my friend.

  9. You non KArachites Jaanwaars.
    You peoples just enjoy Karachites wounds.not even a single pakistani other then Karachites and the mayors party peoples
    were helping the poor business man who are also majority of MQM supporters.We karachites are fool when we help the october 2005 earth quake victims
    while nobody comes for our help.Our dull home minister in busy with corrupt zardari’s one bridge inauguration.
    But we Karachite don’t care about any other.
    Go support corrupt PPP, PML(N), or munaafik religious parties.
    We Love Karachi,
    We Love MQM,
    We Love Pakistan,
    We Love Islam.

  10. Its quite obvious that some people use dead bodies to score points. Bomb blasts are happening almost daily in every corner of pakistan but hey as soon asit happens in karachi of course its mqm. i wonder moon market, lahore was sharif mafia’s work.

  11. Dear shahid i have read your article and i cannot ignore your logical point as my view
    “Karachi Baloch on the Crossroads” Karachi, the city of lightness has once again was plunged into darkness where the owner’s of Karachi the Baloch nation face discrimination and subjugation by the Drug mafia and Land mafia organizations whom are working for secret services and who are involved in land grabbing and drug trafficking inside Karachi’s mostly Baloch dominated area of Lyari. Lyari once a peaceful place where the Baloch lived for ages and their daily earning was due to fishing and harboring in the sea of Keamari. But as Karachi once called Kulachi was changed and the economical growth was gaining grounds inside the market of Karachi, Karachi became the port city of Pakistan and thus Karachi was then known to be the City of Lights where once Baloch were the lights of this city.
    Although many years have passed and the population of Karachi crossed to 30 million, the Baloch were left behind and so the town of Lyari was thrown in the depths of Drug dealers, gamblers & gangster which were destined with the people of Lyari. Lyari once peaceful has became a new battle ground where Baloch are standing on the crossroads, they are being target killed, and they are being subjugated by the Drug dealers & Land Grabbers whom are agents of Political parties.
    Karachi most Baloch places or societies are very old and they were settled here when Pakistan was not even separated from British India, Lyari, Golimar, Baloch Colony, Kiamasiri are just mere examples of Baloch residing inside Karachi for centuries but as Karachi’s economically boosted, the rise in population was seen but the droll thing is this that most of the population came from the outside like Punjab, N.W.F.P and even from India where tens of thousands of people migrated in the time of Zia-ul-Haq who planned to break the popularity of PPPP by backing up the Muhajir Quami Movement (MQM) whom were given everything they asked, the Government tried to settle up these muhajirs in the muhajir camp area of Karachi. These huge migrations of people from other places was done in the name of development and like this so called development scheme the local population of Karachi Baloch & Sindhi were left behind and we can see these kinds of drama going on inside the port city of Balochistan Gwadar, where Baloch are being fooled for the so called packages & provincial autonomy.
    The same picture is in Gwadar where the new deep sea project is situated, after the completion and before the making of deep sea port many land mafia dealers tried to subdue the local Baloch to sell their land for they could take advantage of this time and can live a better life, The Gwadar people should see the Baloch of Karachi as an example and should stop this foolishness because they will be in bitter consequences once the outsiders reach the shores of Gwadar and take out the rest of the local Baloch population from the picture once and for all as they have done to the Baloch population inside Karachi.
    The new wave of terror and target killing inside Karachi is dangerous for all the Baloch nation and an example for the Baloch to be united or you will fall in the depths of depression and will lose your identity. The most tragic day of 7th January 2010 brought darkness into the lives of Baloch residing in Hasan Lashkari village of Lyari town where MQM has got holdup because of its supporter residing in the place of Usmanabad which is opposite of Hasan Lashkari Village. The Baloch people of lashkari village were targeted by MQM thugs when they were resting outside of their houses and came under heavy firing by the MQM Goons, the reason was the killing of a Goon of MQM by unknown assailants who threw away is body in the center of lashkari village and usmanabad and thus the MQM thugs took the revenge on innocent Baloch people of Lashkari village in which eights Baloch people lost their lives and one Baloch woman have also became the target.
    The target killing of Baloch people in Hasan lashkari village was not the only tragedy occurred on 7th January 2010 but a Social activist Sangat Nadir Baloch was also systematically targeted by the Drug mafia dealers of Lyari in the town of Golimar where Baloch nation has been fighting the land grabbers of MQM on the case of Gutter Bagicha which has became a issue and through this case many Baloch were target killed by MQM in the disguise of Political Brawl, for instance Zahid Baloch the chairman of BNP(M) Karachi zone, Rahman Baloch the Chairman of Peace Committee, Sangat Nisar Baloch and now Sangat Nadir Baloch who was a close friend of Nisar Baloch, was against the Occupation of Gutter Bagicha & was also struggling to destroy the Drug Mafia which was making it roots in the Baloch society.
    Nadir Baloch was the enemy of everyone who were trying to genocide Baloch nation including the people of Drug Mafia dealers in which many Baloch political personalities are involved, Sangat Nadir tried and struggled to stop the trafficking of drugs inside the Baloch society and warned the Drug dealers for consequences. Baloch truly condemn the Baloch Politician who are also responsible for the killing of Sangat Nadir Baloch and the Innocent Baloch people in Hasan Lashkari Village because in the Name of PPPP, the innocent Baloch people of Lashkari village were killed, Baloch denounce the PPPP which have make another committee for such target killings because Baloch nation knows that these committees are like monsoon weather which will never make any changes to the life of the people who have lost their loved ones. Nabeel Gabol the Minister of Port & Shipping and a member of PPPP despite big claims of making Lyari another “Paris” has done nothing about the situation occurred yesterday which gave Baloch nation more corpses to mourn upon.
    Lyari honor was looted yesterday, the ministers and the big shots of Lyari like Nabeel Gabol were just spectators of the systematically target killing of Lyari Baloch population. The Baloch now have to help themselves like Sangat Nadir fought against the Drug system in Baloch society every Baloch should encourage this thought and should engage himself in the footstep of Nadir Baloch because the killers of Nadir Baloch are these Drug Dealers who are Baloch by name but are bought by federation for genocide Baloch nation.after reading this article what you feel?

  15. very true MQM is a terrorist group

  16. Involvement of MQM & Blackwater in Karachi terrorism can’t be ignored. As anti Pakistan/anti Islamic lobby is investing heavily to keep a group of political filth imposed in Pakistan which is being bribed off & on by that lobby. This whole filthy group is hired not to let Islamic Law take the place of Constitution & keep Pakistan destroyed in all departments of life. But now that NRO stands rejected by Pakistan’s Supreme Court & Parliament & the law plus judiciary seem to be straightening Anti Pakistan lobby is at its best to create harassment here & not let the govt or people work on any issue that may take Pakistan’s control out of its hand. India is the main character of Anti Pakistan Lobby escorted by USA & Israel on the issue.
