India Funded MQM in Pakistan: BBC


London: The BBC has quoted sources to report that officials in Pakistan’s MQM or Muttahida Qaumi Movement party have told the UK authorities they received Indian government funds.

UK authorities investigating the MQM for alleged money laundering also found a list of weapons in an MQM property, says the report by BBC.

BBC says it has been told by a Pakistani official that India has trained hundreds of MQM militants over the last 10 years.

The Indian authorities described the claims as “completely baseless”. The MQM has not commented. The MQM has 24 members in the Pakistan National Assembly.
