LONDON: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Wednesday accused Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) of threatening renowned Sufi singer Amjad Sabri, who was gunned down at Liaquatabad area of Karachi.
“A conscienceless gang of Khayaban-e-Sahar was threatening Shaheed Amjad Sabri and asking him to visit their place,” Nadeem Nusrat, a senior MQM leader, said while referring to PSP main office.
He claimed that Sabri had been receiving threats for the last four weeks.
بالکل درست ہے۔ امجد صابری شہید کوچارہفتوں سے خیابان سحر والے بے ضمیر ٹولےکی جانب سے حاضری دینےکی دھمکیاں مل رہی تھیں pic.twitter.com/rVO5X3hnzt

Reacting to Nusrat’s allegations, PSP spokesman Iftikhar Alam said that there was no truth behind the MQM’s claims.
Alam said that the PSP had not organized any programme in which Amjad Sabri would have been invited.
He hit back at the Nadeem Nusrat, saying MQM’s politics was based on hatred and violence. –Samaa
