BBC report is ‘table story’: MQM leader Wasay Jalil


KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Wasay Jalil termed the BBC report alleging that his party received Indian funding as a ‘table story’.

The MQM leader took to twitter and said the party had seen these confessions since 1992 and so was not worried.

A report by Owen Benett-Jones for the BBC quoting an ‘authoritative Pakistani source’ claims officials in Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) in recorded interviews told authorities in the UK they had ‘received funds from the Indian government’.

The report states the BBC was informed by a Pakistani official that over the last 10 years hundreds of MQM militants had been trained by India. The training was taking place in camps in north and north-east India.

According to the report prior to 2005-06 training was provided to mid-ranking MQM members, while in recent years it was also provided to junior party members.

A list of weapons was also found at a MQM owned property by UK authorities.

The BBC states that Indian had termed the report as ‘completely baseless’ while the MQM had not commented on it.
