KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has postponed its referendum on Quaid’s or Taliban’s Pakistan, SAMAA reports on Saturday.
The MQM said that the postponement has been made as a sign of respect for the month of Muharram.
The decision was taken during a meeting of MQM’s Pakistan and London Coordination Committees.
During the meeting, the coordination committees decided to postpone the referendum, keeping in view the fact that leaders and elected representatives of MQM meet several Ulema before the start of Muharram to promote unity among different sects.
The new date for the referendum will be announced later.
The MQM had announced to hold a referendum across the country to ask people whether they would like to live in a Pakistan run by the Taliban or the one envisioned by the Quaid-e-Azam.
The referendum of the MQM was supposed to be held on November 8th but it was postponed to Nov 14 and now it is again postponed. SAMAA
