Ali Raza Abidi’s murder has Altaf Hussain written all over it: Hamza
Pakistani actor and TV show host Hamza Ali Abbasi said a few hours after Ali Raza Abidi’s killing that MQM founder Altaf Hussain was behind it.
“Maybe revenge or a message for those who had left the Altafist mafia?” Hamza had tweeted.
#AliRazaAbidi Tragic news. This target killing has Altaf Hussein written all over it… maybe revenge or a lesson for those who left the Altafist Mafia? Allah knows best. May his soul rest in peace.

In another tweet, Hamza Ali Abbasi had claimed that the recent unrest in Karachi pointed to a plan that was intended to create anarchy and chaos in Karachi.
High profile target killing in Karachi points at a new plan to create unrest in Khi. Some of us willingly/unwillingly are becoming part of it by calling it STATE TERRORISM without any logic/reason/evidence & implying our security agencies did this. TRAGIC. RIP #AliRazaAbidi
