MQM Senior Leader Dr Imran Farooq Killed In London

London: MQM senior leader Imran Farooq killed in London, Imran Farooq has been killed by the man in front of his house in London.

The killer uses a knife as a weapon and attack on Dr Imran Farooq consistently. According to Pakistan time killer attack on Imran Farooq on 11:30 p.m. After that Imran Farooq has been sent to nearest hospital but doctor confirmed that he was dead.
 
No idea who he is, but its another good reason for idiots to set the streets alight and cause untold damage....to innocent peoples property!
 
NO news agency has reported this apart from a poorly written paragraph as quoted by PakPassionate from someones Twitter account?
 
Imran Farooq has worked with Altaf Hussain since beginning and was an important fiqure in the party. I guess no one knows if this was a political murder or someone who has personal vendenta with Imran Farooq. May Allah bless his soul. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
 
i think it could be personal attack as he is no where a threat to altaf's throne. He is staying in UK for the same reason as altaf's asylum. could be just a thief who killed him.

As per jang news, he was climbing the stairs in his house when a man attack him with a knife and stabbed him multiple times. He was taken to hospital where he died
 
Inna Lillahi wa Innal Elaihi Raajeeoon

I just hope karachi does not bear the brunt of this. I have the same sentiments as the OP.
 
Maybe the dude was ticked off at Imran for not making sure urdu speaking players were represented in the team and whacked him for not taking care of his community.

either way, I am sure Karachiites will be stressed out right now because their own people may be coming out to get them shortly..
 
they held my dad once for a few hours at Jinnah airport because they thought he resembled Imran Farooq :)))
it has been confirmed BBc just updated http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-11338054

they are closing down the shops and markets in Karachi . when they killed Raza Haider , everything was closed down and people did not step out in fear for about a week . this man is even more senior so expect an even worse reaction . this is very bad news for the awaam .
 
May Allah SubhanahuWaTaAla have mercy on Pakistan.

Especially the minorities in Karachi, there have been many killings with ANP (pathan party) lately.

May Allah protect all the innocent citizens of Pakistan. ameen.
 
The burning of public property has already started in Karachi - A shop in Clifton has been set on fire and more shops are currently under fire too!
 
Its 3am in the morning in Pakistan and people are creating havoc already - Firing going on aswell and many petrol stations on fire now...
 
This gut was big in 90s and I remember there were news about being killed at the time.MQM mourned hi death back then if I remember correctly but he emerged in London years later.
 
Hang on - if this guy was a Pakistani politician what on earth was he doing living in London? :13::13:
 
We are not a civilized nation

it is not the awam , they must be sleeping without knowing all this has happened while they were sleeping . these are hired goons or party workers who get things done forcefully in the city .
 
Bhai sadmey main hain, baat nahin kar sakte: A guy tells newscaster on telephone.:13:
 
He had claimed political asylum since 1999.

He is a massive cheese in the MQM party as he has been at Altaf's side since the very beginning.

Very bad news for Karachi, and perhaps the final excuse for the Army coming in when Karachi burns for the next few days.

:altaf has suddenly started supporting the army once again so it would be no surprise

Whether you like MQM or not, they are simply too important to ignore these days as they control Karachi where so much of the country's wealth eminates.

MQM cant make a Government with PML because of historical vendettas. They supported Zardari because he gave them carte blanche control over Karachi, but now PPP mafia has moved into MQM interests.

So the only party left? The Army... Altaf has has always been a survivor and with his recent, much-criticised comments, he has gambled in advance that this present Government is untenable and the Army will come in.
 
Time for typical MQM for Karachi...God help the innocents of Karachi
 
Took some balls for the killer to kill him in London.

Not really. These guys think they are safe in UK. Even Bilawal walks around Oxford with minimal security.

If this killing is found to be politically-motivated, I await the fury of the UK Govt as the Pakistan turf war spills into the UK.

Doesn't seem like something an assassinator would do, no? Especially motivated by politics. I mean, stab him to death a number of times. A gun shot with silencer could have worked better and easier. Maybe poison. But stabbing... Seems like a personal vendetta to me, tbh.

In Pakistani politics, you generally dont get these professional assasins like you see in the movies. Usually just a ghoonda riding passenger on a motorbike with a gun. Its how these guys make their 'bones' to get promoted within the party.

Exactly. Gun.

Stabbing outside his house... seems more like what someone would do in Pakistan where there are no chances of either anyone seeing, or if seeing, then keeping quiet.

The other politicians may be roaming around with minimal security in UK but then how often have such murders occured in UK? This one is very strange. First the way it happened, and then the city/country it happened in. You can't get away with murder in UK like you can in Pak.

By the way, SY has received CCTV footage. Let's see what that uncovers.
 
the goons didn't disappoint anyone.

they came out and burnt everything.

Karachi ka allah he haffiz hai.
 
Listen to this.I have just heard BBC 5Live midnight headlines.
"Prominent anti alqaeda Pakistani politician has been killed in London"
 
Some cars and shops burned in Karachi right after they heard this news. But then different MQM leaders have appealed for peace right now. So now things are peaceful. Police and Rangers keeping an eye.

Perhaps this is the start of a new style of killing, outside of Pak. Using street tactics to put the UK Govt off the scent. An assasination disguised as a street crime.

But the way street crime is in parts of London, maybe this is just be a normal mugging-gone-wrong.

The killing was only reported PM Karachi time. Wait until tomorrow Friday prayers time...
 
i dont get it ..why do these goons burn down shops and cars whenever a politican die? then they cry about the worsening economy ...dunya chan ta pounch ghaie or hum log ab tak 29712 BC ma pouncha hain
 
Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

Which party was he a member of? MQM...

and which party owns Karachi? MQM...

People of Pakistan own karachi, People of Karachi own Karachi, no one party own karachi, just like Punjabi doesn't own punjab or lahore, pathan doesn't own Peshawar, etc, every Pakistani own Pakistan, stop this division.

He was killed in LONDON not in Karachi
 
BBC report:

Pakistani politician Imran Farooq murdered in London

An exiled Pakistani politician has been murdered outside his home in north London, leaders of his party have said.

Imran Farooq, a senior member of the MQM party, is believed to have been attacked in Green Lane, Edgware, on Thursday afternoon.

The Metropolitan Police said a 50-year-old man had died after suffering multiple stab wounds and head injuries.

The MQM has declared a 10-day mourning period and violence has been reported in Karachi, with cars being set alight.

There have also been reports of gunfire in the city, the largest in Pakistan and the main base of support for the MQM (Muttahida Quami Movement), but it is understood nobody has been killed or injured.

Hundreds of party activists have converged on Mr Farooq's family home in central Karachi.

In hiding

Police in London were called to reports of a serious assault at 1730 BST on Thursday. Mr Farooq was treated by paramedics but declared dead at the scene about an hour later.

Mr Farooq's next of kin have been informed. No arrests have been made.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "When officers arrived they found an Asian male, aged 50, suffering from multiple stab wounds and head injuries.

"He was treated by paramedics at the scene but was pronounced dead at 1837."

Mr Farooq disappeared from Pakistan in 1992 and is known to have been living in exile in London since 1999, when he claimed asylum in the UK.

He is understood to have been wanted by security forces and said in 1999 he had spent the previous seven years in hiding in Karachi.

The former Pakistani parliamentarian was one of the founding members of the MQM.

The party said it had declared a 10-day mourning period in Pakistan and in its offices across the world.

Leaders said they expect to take Mr Farooq's body back to Karachi for burial after legal formalities have been completed.

'Violent' past

The BBC's Shoaib Hasan in Karachi said he had spoken to party members and said "there's a lot of grief and a lot of sorrow going around".

He said the activists who had headed to the dead politician's Karachi home appeared grief stricken and angry and many were weeping openly.

Our correspondent added: "I spoke to an MQM leader who was at the home of Imran Farooq in Karachi with his parents. They said that they are relying totally on the Metropolitan Police, that they have great faith in the Metropolitan Police."

He said Mr Farooq was in essence the party's deputy leader and added he had not returned to Pakistan since his arrival in England in the 1990s.

Our correspondent said the MQM had had a "violent" past.

In 1999 Mr Farooq told the BBC charges against him in his home country were politically motivated.

At the time he said he intended to campaign against the Pakistani government of the day from exile in Britain.

'Pakistani politician' killed in UK

A leading Pakistani politician has been stabbed to death outside his home in north London, British news agencies reported.

Imran Farooq, a senior member of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) party, which has a strong base in Pakistan's Sindh province, was found with head injuries and stab wounds outside his home on Thursday, media reports said.

Police confirmed that they were called to investigate reports of a serious assault in the Edgware district at 5.30pm, but they did not identify the victim.

"Officers found an Asian man, aged 50, with stab wounds and head injuries. Paramedics treated the man but he was pronounced dead at the scene at 6.37pm" (1737 GMT), a police spokesman told the AFP news agency.

Police are investigating the incident.

'Asylum seeker'

Farooq was reported to have been living in London since 1992. He claimed asylum in Britain after more than seven years on the run from Pakistani police who accused him of involvement in cases of murder and other serious crimes, according to reports on the MQM website from 1999. Farooq had denied the charges.

He was a founding member of the MQM party, which is based in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi and is one of the country's major parties with a strong anti-Taliban stance.

It mainly represents descendants of Urdu-speaking migrants from India who settled in Pakistan after partition in 1947.

Ethnic killings

Opposition groups accuse the MQM of exaggerating the threat of the Taliban because of a history of bias against Pashtuns, an estimated two to four million of whom live in Karachi.

Last month, the murder of another MQM politician, Raza Haider, in Karachi triggered a wave of political and ethnic killing in the city that left about 85 people dead.

Karachi has been plagued by ethnic and sectarian killings, crime and kidnappings, exacerbating woes in a country battling with unprecedented flooding that has killed more than 1,500 people and
affected up to 21 million.

Tensions are high between coalition partners MQM and the Awami National Party (ANP), which represent different communities in Karachi.

The ANP is the party of more than two million Pashtuns who have escaped poverty and violence in the northwest for Karachi, where they largely perform menial jobs in transport and construction.

exactly my point. The guy has been killed in London. Why are these loons creating havoc in Karachi. These MQM guys are bunch of lunatics.
 
Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajioon.

May Allah forgive all his sins and grant him Paradise. May Allah also have Mercy on his family, give them sabr, and have Mercy on the residents and poor people of our country, and in particular of our largest city. Ameen.

One of the more genuinely talented orators in Pakistani politics. His speech during the marathon 1990 no-confidence motion in the National Assembly against BB is a master-piece of Urdu rhetorical speech-making.

Oxy bro, you don't know Dr. Imran Farooq??!!
He was a founding leader of MQM and its first secretary general.

Dr Imran Farooq is remembered by Muttahida loyalists as one of the key figures who laid the foundation for the All Pakistan Mohajir Students’ Organisation (APMSO), which eventually turned out to be a forerunner of the MQM.

During the early 1980s, the APMSO was converted into a fully fledged political party to advocate the cause of the Urdu-speaking popuce, mainly in Karachi and other parts of urban Sindh.

With Altaf Hussain as its leader, the bespectacled Dr Farooq was appointed secretary general of the party. He was also regarded as one of the main ideologues and the brain behind education of the party cadre.

Really yar - to this day, I dont understand the meaning of terms like "PPP Birmingham branch" - your vote is in Pakistan, the people here cant/dont vote for candidates in Pakistan so who are these supporters for these parties living in UK? Shouldnt these people be better off trying to take part in the political process in the UK?
 
Exactly.. first the crooked politician dies, and to top it all, our idiotic nation gave her even more crooked husband all their sypmathetic vote to put him in office. then we have MQM another gang of crooked politicians who align themselves with the head crooked politicians (PPP) to form their own government. I wish the Sharifs, Bhuttos, Altaf Husseins of Pakistan simply disappeared overnight and left our poor country for good. It is time common man stood up and took reigns of this country. These dakoos have done nothing but destory us.

A few years back, the military came up with a plan to get rid of them. The ISI developed a hand picked team of soldiers who would travel to Islamabad at night, infiltrate the residences of most of them (I'm not sure which ones) and introduce them to their maker. This was back when NS or BB were PM, I'm not sure which one. Unfortunately, the plan was foiled because on a stop over on the way to ISB, one of the military idiots was boasting about their plans to a cop who blabbed to the authorities in ISB and they took countermeasures immediately. I'm not sure about all the details; my dad told me about it 4 years back and he was in the army when this plan was initiated.
 
Its a well established fact that the killing/looting/burning are MQM's area of expertise and more often than not, its them doing it. Secondly, regarding your 70% revenue argument, this is the reason why Karachi/the people from there are disliked unanimously by almost the whole country; Pakistan has a mixed agricultural and Industrial economy and most of the goods produced in Pakistan are produced in Punjab and interior Sindh; Karachi is only used for selling them onwards to the customers - they don't produce jack and a lot of people take exception to this argument because of that.

don't worry bro MQM is here to stay..............no need to waste yr energy......

Sigh!!!! and then people cry, moan and complain about the dwindling state of Pakistan. Terrorists are being formally voted into government by their sympathizers.
 
:)))

Soon as someone points out the terrorist tactics of MQM, the MQM sympathiserz start bashing other ethcnities left and right thinking the criticism has something to do with ethnicity.

I know tons of urdu speaking pakistanis who absolutely hate and despise MQM as much as the next person.

You can proudly point out MQM is here to stay but so are the taliban and al qaeda.. thats the sad truth of Pakistan. Now if you want to distribute sweets over the fact, thats your prerogative.
