Senior MQM leader Muhammad Anwar passes away in London | The Express Tribune

Muhammad Anwar, one of the founding members of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM), has passed away in London after a prolonged illness.

Last year, the senior MQM leader said that the allegations on his party of being funded by India were true. He had also said that it was he who was tasked with handing over the money to the party.

In April 2015, the veteran leader was apprehended by the London Metropolitan Police and was questioned for several hours before he was released on bail as part of a money laundering investigation.

He was also accused of being involved in the murder of senior MQM leader Imran Farooq in London. He, however, had said at the time that neither he nor the party supremo Altaf Hussain was involved.

Earlier, in April, MQM removed Anwar from its Rabita (coordination) Committee owing to his “continued illness”.

Anwar had fled to London ahead of Altaf following the 1992 operation in Karachi and made residential arrangements for the MQM chief. His son-in-law has also been indicted in a money laundering case.
