ISLAMABAD – The largest political party of Urban Sindh Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) suffers the first loss of life after rouge terrorist and outlawed militant group leader Mangal Bagh announced to target secular and liberal parties of Pakistan.
The deceased worker of MQM identified as one Abdul Jabbar received critical wounds in a grenade attack on Friday.
According to the media reports the attack was carried on Friday night injured at least dozen of people. At that time MQM workers were engaged in party’s membership campaign. The grenade blast also injured three MQM members of Sindh Assembly including Mohammad Hussain, Sheikh Abdullah and Saifuddin Khalid.
The deceased Abdull Jabbar along with two other critically wounded workers were shifted to Abbassi Shaheed Hospital for treatment. However, Jabbar was unable to survive the injuries.
It is also pertinent to mention here that spokesman for Jamaatul Ahrar – Ehsanullah Ehsan – told one leading English daily over telephone that “the MQM and other political parties who are thriving on the anti-Taliban agenda are on our hit list”.
He said that the attacks on Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP) besides MQM would be continuing, adding that the militant outfit has renewed its war against these parties.
Not to forget that it was only on November 6 that PakistanTribe reported that Mangal Bagh has once again asked his commanders to target those politicians who oppose their ideology mostly belonging to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP).
The on-ground sources confirmed this correspondent that a ghost radio station of banned outfit Laskar-e-Islam daily broadcast Mangal Bagh’s sermons in which he spread the hatred against those opposing their ideas.
The residents of Khyber, Jamrud, Hayatabad, the outskirts of Peshawar and even Jalozai have confirmed that they received the banned militant group’s FM radio broadcast. According to telecommunication experts the transmission channel could only be operated from the roof of some vehicle or hideouts in the Bara mountains.
On November 13, only a week after Mangal Bagh’s announcement, the spokesperson of outlawed militant group had merrily accepted that their armed men were responsible of murdering Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Fazal Hayat Chattan in beautiful valley of Swat. Fazal was the district general secretary of PPP and also an active supporter and promoter of pro-government peace committee in Swat. He was gunned down earlier today outside his residence in Qambar area of Mingora city.
