LONDON: British Prime Minister David Cameron has taken notice of the protest demonstration staged by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) at 10 Downing Street against the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain’s telephonic addresses in Pakistan.
According to source, Mr Cameron came out of his residence and witnessed for five minutes the demonstration being held outside.
The British PM inquired from his staff about the demands being made by the PTI demonstrators.
Responding to the call of PTI hundreds of demonstrators staged a protest against Muttahida Qaumi Movment (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain’s telephonic speeches in Pakistan.
As many as 1500 PTI and JI supporters and other demonstrators gathered at 10 Downing Street in London to lodge protest against MQM chief Altaf Hussain. The PTI protesters claimed that Altaf Hussain had threatened its anti vote rigging demonstrators in Karachi with dire consequences during a telephonic speech.
The participants of the demonstration demanded of the British government to put a curb on any interference by any kind of group or organization from Britain into the politics of Pakistan and provocation of the latter’s people.
Meanwhile, the London Police earlier rejected arresting activists of a Pakistan-based political party here.
According to sources, the London police came up with this clarification in the wake of a news item claiming the arrests that went viral on the social media.
It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Sindh senior vice president, Zahra Shahid Hussain, was gunned down in Karachi on Saturday night.
Soon after her killing, the PTI Chairman Imran Khan held MQM Chief Altaf Hussain “directly responsible” for the murder, saying that the MQM chief had openly threatened the PTI leaders and workers.
“I hold Altaf Hussain directly responsible for the murder as he had openly threatened PTI workers and leaders through public broadcasts,” Imran Khan said.
