Chief of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, Altaf Hussain, said Sunday that a conspiracy was being hatched to trigger ethnic riots and to sabotage the current atmosphere of harmony among permanent residents of Sindh. This he said while speaking at the Rabita Committees meeting held simultaneously in London and Karachi. He said that the MQM had been striving hard to end the rural-urban divide and to create ethnic harmony in Sindh for the past many years. However, he noted that some so-called leaders and ministers of the ruling PPP were making an attempt to start ethnic riots in the province with the help of nationalist parties.
