He said that the party should hold protests over the arrest of MQM chief Altaf Hussain in the United Kingdom instead.

Khan said the UK had arrested one of its citizens on charges of money-laundering, adding that it made no sense for the MQM to stage its protests in Karachi.

The PTI chief said he fully understood “the anguish of the MQM workers” but asserted that it was “absolutely unjustified for the MQM to bring Karachi to a standstill and disrupt the lives of the people” of the city when it is the British authorities who have taken legal action against a British citizen.
