Altaf Hussain Arrested by Scotland Yard

By Noor Mani — Published on 11/06/2019

It looks like it’s a season of arrests in the Pakistani political arena with the likes of Nawaz Shareef and Asif Zardari getting arrested. And now in the latest turn of events, leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement, Altaf Hussain, has been arrested in London by Scotland Yard. The founder of MQM has been arrested on the basis of hate speech which was made to ignite violence in Pakistan back in 2016. Altaf Hussain was arrested from his house after Scotland Yard raided his house in North London. The MQM leader was then shifted to the police station for further investigations.


The arrest of Altaf Hussain was also confirmed by the police department of the UK. The police confirmed that they have arrested a man from North London associated with MQM on the basis of hate speeches that were made. The police will be investigating the matters related to the hate speeches that were made by the man which is Altaf Hussain. The police said that the man arrested is in his 60s and has been arrested on offenses contrary to Section 44 of the Serious Crime Act of 2007. While the news of the arrest was confirmed by the London Police, MQM officials insisted that their party leader has not been arrested rather was taken for an interview.

MQM spokesperson Qasim Raza said that their coordination committee is in contact with the British Legal System along with the lawyers. Altaf Hussain delivered a fiery speech back in August 2016 while addressing his party workers. The anti-Pakistan speech by the MQM leader proved to be too much and is considered to be one of the main reasons for the downfall of MQM and Altaf Hussain. It needs to be seen whether the MQM leader is released on bail or not, but for now, he will be in the jail of London.
