MQM makes key demands from government

Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, accompanied by members of the Rabita Committee, held a press conference at Pakistan House in Karachi on Tuesday. During the conference, Siddiqui strongly advocated for the establishment of a judicial commission to investigate the tragic Baldia factory fire case.

This demand comes after the disheartening realization that the verdict in this case, which resulted in the death sentences of two MQM-P workers, was delivered after an agonizing 12-year delay. Siddiqui expressed profound sorrow over the loss of countless lives in the incident.

Siddiqui emphasized that the victims of the Baldia factory fire, both those who lost their lives and those who survived, were affiliated with MQM-P. He pledged the unwavering commitment of the party to secure justice for all its workers, including those who were convicted in the case. Furthermore, Siddiqui asserted the party's belief that its workers were innocent and contended that the responsibility for the tragic fire lies squarely with the factory owners.

In a recent development, the Sindh High Court (SHC) upheld the decision of an anti-terrorism court (ATC) regarding the Baldia factory fire case. This decision, announced on Monday, saw the rejection of appeals filed by two MQM-P activists who had received death sentences. The MQM-P continues to press for a judicial commission to thoroughly investigate the case and bring justice to the victims and their families.

The demand for a judicial commission by MQM-P Convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui underscores the party's commitment to seeking justice for its workers and the victims of the tragic Baldia factory fire.

The lengthy delay in delivering a verdict in this case has further intensified the party's resolve to uncover the truth behind the incident. As the legal proceedings unfold, the fate of those convicted hangs in the balance, while the pursuit of justice remains at the forefront of MQM-P's agenda
