MWM, allies end sit-in at Numaish Chowrangi

KARACHI: Majlis-e-Wahdatul Muslimeem (MWM), Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), Pakistan Sunni Tehreek (PST) and Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) on Thursday ended their sit-in, which was staged in support of Tahirul Qadri-led Inqilab March for two days at Numaish Chowrangi.
It is pertinent to mention here that MWM had been staging a sit-in at Numaish Chowrangi for last two days after Maghrib prayers.
MWM Spokesman Ali Ahmer said that the MWM ended its sit-in after their leader Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafari summoned the leaders to Islamabad to discuss the current political scenario in Islamabad and talks offer from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government.
“We also consulted other parties for ending sit-in in the city and they also agreed to it,” he said, adding that they had not left out this option and if their leaders would again ask them to stage sit-in they would do it again.
He said that the party leaders that were summoned in Islamabad to discuss the negotiation offer from the PML-N government included MWM Secretary Allama Hassan Hashmi, Allama Nisar Abidi, Ahsan Mehdi, Jawad Haider, Salman Hussain and Engineer Raza Naqvi.
Meanwhile, a source privy to the development told that a lack of participation from allied parties except MWM in the sit-in and small number of participants at Numaish Chowrangi forced the MWM leadership to culminate this protest. 
“The negotiation offer from the PML-N government to PAT leader Tahirul Qadri also paved way for ending this sit-in,” the source said.
