The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement Mr Altaf Hussain has expressed his heartfelt condolences on the death of MQM supporter Mushtaq s/o Abdul Razzaque who was critically injured in Layari by the firing of the terrorists on 9th March. Mr Altaf Hussain sympathized with the family members and prayed for the eternal peace of the departed soul.
Mushtaq had received bullet injuries and was admitted in the intensive care unit of a local hospital.

He was buried in Mewa Shah Graveyard. MQM MPAs Tahir Qureshi, Muqeem Alam and Shoaib Ibrahim attended the funeral prayer and burial.
Meanwhile the Co-ordination Committee of the MQM has strongly condemned the unfortunate death of Mushtaq and has once again demanded stern action against the criminals and terrorists of the gang war. The Committee said that the inaction against the criminals and their continued patronage is a cause of serious for the peace loving people of the country.
The Co-ordination Committee asserted that the actions of the criminals of gang war are not directed against MQM alone rather their ignoble activities have badly affected traders, businessmen, artists and small shopkeepers. The Co-ordination Committee decried that the police were doing nothing to control the situation and their unexplained silence has put a big question mark over in the minds of general public about peace and security.
The Co-ordination Committee demanded of President Asif Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani to take serious notice of the swell of the vicious activities of the gang war elements and bring to book the killers of Mushtaq. They also stressed upon them to take actions against the supporters of these criminals and hold them accountable for their misdeeds.
