KARACHI: Home Minister Sindh Sohail Anwar Siyal on Tuesday labelled Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain a "trouble-maker" and called for his execution on treason charges.

Speaking to media, the home minister said remaining trouble-makers would also be crushed under operation Radd-ul-Fasaad.

He said the provincial authorities have written a letter to the federal government for bringing Hussain back and punish him over the killing of two activists of Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).

"We are aware at whose behest such statements are being issued," Siyal said, in response to recent statements by former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf and former home minister Zulfikar Mirza.

Commenting on security during Muharram, the provincial minister claimed the provincial government has made foolproof arrangements to ensure public safety, besides requesting the Ministry of Interior for suspension of mobile phone services on 9th and 10th Muharram.

Earlier to this, Siyal distributed orders for appointments in the agriculture department and its subsidiaries among nearly a hundred individuals, on the son-quota basis.

"No one has any quota in government jobs. All of these jobs will be given to deserving people in the province on merit," he said.
