MQM-Pakistan calls off protest against census results: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan called off on Thursday its protest against the results of the sixth population and housing census, which was scheduled to be held on September 16. The party cancelled the protest due to the security threat to the party leaders, informed sources, adding that the party leaders are concerned about security ever since the attack on Khawaja Izhar-ul-Hassan.
MQM-Pakistan leaders had announced that they will organise a rally, against the census results, which will start from Liaquatabad and culminate at Quaid-e-Azam’s Mausoleum on September 10.
