Last week, senior MQM leader Farooq Sattar had revealed at a public meeting that Altaf Hussain’s bank accounts in London were being frozen and had asked party workers and supporters to continue their ‘peaceful struggle’ against the British govt.

Altaf Hussain, who has been living in London for over 2 decades and is now a British citizen, did not address that meeting held to condemn money-laundering investigations against him by British govt.
