The Central Organizer, MQM USA, Ajaz Siddiqui and members of the Central Organizing Committee issued a statement condemning the well planned conspiracy to hold Karachi hostage by radical Taliban. "We join hands with the workers of MQM in strengthening the hands of Quaid -e- Tehreek Altaf Hussain to defend Karachi against the menace of Taliban ". They said that the people of Sind and especially those who reside in the metropolis of Karachi are liberal, progressive and non-conservative; they will not allow Taliban to exploit extremism, and radical Islam on to them. Ajaz Siddiqui further said that Talibanization is the destabilizing export of Afghan style radical Islam. It is being influxes on to halt the development and progress of Karachi. MQM is the only force that offers resistance to such demons. Talibanization and extremism, however, represents a state of mind and requires more comprehensive efforts to fight radical Islam and promote a moderate agenda in nuclear-armed Pakistan. The office-bearers of MQM USA also warned everyone in Taliban's leadership that every worker of MQM will deny safe haven to them in Karachi. "The people of Sind are united with MQM in denying access to the phenomenon of Talibanization and other forms of extremism," They said.
