MQM sacks Amir Khan from Rabita Committee

KARACHI: Senior Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Amir Khan has been sacked from the party’s coordination committee.

According to sources, the decision was taken in a meeting of MQM’s office bearers from Landhi, Korangi, Malir and Shah Faisal Colony, Samaa reported.

Amir, who is staying abroad these days, was sacked from his position after the party workers expressed reservation on the coordination committee, the sources added.

A school of thought also believes that sooner or later, Amir Khan will join hands with Pakistan Sarzameen Party (PSP), and that he is in touch with Mustafa Kamal.

Khan was inducted into the coordination committee in August 2015.

The MQM leader, who was detained among others by Rangers on charges of aiding terrorists, was allowed by an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) to fly to Dubai in response to his petition.

The ATC also directed him to return to country till July 20.
