The MQM legislators are chanting slogans against extortion inside the provincial assembly.

Earlier, a joint emergent meeting of MQM Coordination Committee Pakistan and London chapters decided to protest against extortionist mafia in and outside Sindh Assembly today.

Sources privy to the minutes of the meeting said that MQM leaders, in the strongest of words warned unruly feudal lords under whose aegis the extortionists were thriving.

They said MQM believed in peaceful co-existence, which they said should not be mistaken for cowardice.

The leadership also said that they were only held back by their Quaid Altaf Hussian, who has always preached peace otherwise these feudal lords would have had it.

Claiming that most of the oppressed population of Sindh as well as journalists and students were on their side, the party leadership urged Altaf Hussian to let them give those overlords a taste of their own medicine.
