This was said in a statement issued by MQM USA today in which the Central Organizer Kamal Zafar and the members of the Central Organizing Committee MQM USA vehemently condemned, on behalf of the workers and supporters of MQM USA, the brutal attack on a MQM Unit office in Gulistan-e-Jauhar Karachi by the ANP terrorists led by Liaquat Bangash that rendered one MQM Unit Committee member Rizwan dead and six other fatally injured who are fighting for their lives in the hospital. The office bearers of MQM USA said that MQM is a peaceful party and had never been into the attacks on the other political partiesí office; however, they said, MQM and its workers very well know how to respond the this type of attacks. The MQM USA officials said that ANP must understand that MQM is their host in the city of Karachi and they must not become hostile to their hosts.  They further said that during the target killings in the last few months, dozens of party workers have lost their lives and MQM did not respond just for the sake of the peace of the city and they didnít want to take the law in their hands. The office bearers of MQM USA demanded of the highest ranking law-enforcing official, the president of Pakistan, and the prime minister of Pakistan to take notice of these incidents and execute a judicial inquiry into this attack. The office bearers of MQM USA offered their profound condolence and sympathies to the families of the victims and prayed for the highest abode in paradise for the deceased and early and complete recovery for the wounded ones.
