KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) today suspended the membership of a senior party member for mistreating a delegation of Pakistan Federal Union of Journalist (PFUJ) during Sunday’s rally.
In an emergency meeting held at Jinnah Park immediately after the public rally, MQM’s Rabita Committee unanimously decided to suspend Qamar Mansoor, one of the senior most members, for showing an irresponsible behavior with the PFUJ’s delegation.
