KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) organized a candlelight vigil at the Trafalgar square, London on Sunday evening in memory of the Peshawar attack victims.
The event was attended by people from different walks of life including politicians and representatives of different faiths. The European Parliament stands in solidarity with the families of the victims and the Pakistani nation, said MEP Barrister Amjad Bashir while addressing the ceremony.
The coordination committee MQM London, Mustafa Azizabadi said, “Along with the Taliban, stern action should also be taken against Taliban facilitators.”
“MQM has been on the forefront and a lone bold voice against Taliban. Three sitting lawmakers of MQM and hundreds of workers and supporters have been killed in attacks by the Taliban. MQM Chief Altaf Hussain is also first and so far the only Pakistani statesman to condemn the increasing threat of IS in Pakistan.”
Addressing an anti- Taliban rally in Pakistani city of Karachi on December 19th, Hussain had said, “They may kill me, But I won’t stop from raising voice against them and their heinous crimes against humanity in the name of religion.”
