MQM to stage 4-day hunger strike against media ban on Altaf: Sattar

KARACHI: MQM leader Farooq Sattar announced on Thursday the party will stage hunger strike for the next four days against the media ban on Altaf Hussain.

Addressing a press conference in Karachi on Thursday, party’s senior deputy convener said a 12-hour hunger strike outside Karachi Press Club will begin on Friday and last till Monday.

The announcement comes a day after MQM’s Rabita Committee asked the nation to stock up food at their homes and take precautions while going out, saying “next 15 days were very crucial” as “something big” was likely to take place.

“After this hunger strike and protests, we will think about the option of staging sit-ins,” Sattar added while speaking at the Khursheed Begum Secretariat.
