MQM says the address is incorrect on Altaf Hussain’s letter to Tony Blair that was provided by Zulfiqar Mirza. Interestingly the same address on MQM.ORG is registered till 2014. MQM’s secretariat address on their official website is 54 – 58, First Floor, Elizabeth House, High Street Edgware, Middlesex, HA8 7EJ, United Kingdom while the address on the letter is 70 Colindale Avenue, London NW9 5ES. The latter address is registered to handle MQM’s official website.

The address is also present on a press release on MQM.org http://www.mqm.org/English-News/Dec-2000/news001208a.htm

In case it is removed:


Dated: Karachi-8 December 2000
The address says — The workers and the public could also send their views to the MQM International Secretariat, London on the following address. MQM International Secretariat
70 Colindale Avenue, London NW9 5ES, United Kingdom.
Phone No: 00 44 20 8358 9000, Fax. No: 00 44 20 8905 9527

As the guns of Karachi continue to incinerate, the torture on the streets is ongoing and innocents continue to fall; so does the bickering between the power echelons. The PPP and the MQM are the beneficiaries of the Karachi vote bank and so are responsible for its tribulations. In the past nine months at least one person has been killed every hour on the streets of Karachi – NON STOP! Someone, somewhere must feel the pain….as my city continues to bleed!!!


PS: Here is the full letter…worth reading



For the record; The infamous Benazir-Peter Letter

Here is the letter MQM’s Mustafa Kamal referred to and  an email I received from Peter Galbraith (Not Gabriel) when I came across this letter. Peter Galbraith calls it a forgery and a crude hoax. I had forgotten about this until today when Mr Kamal made a reference to this letter asking why the media doesnt pick on this and continues to play on Zulfiqar Mirza’s allegations that Altaf Hussain wrote a letter to Tony Blair offering him support of thousands of followers. I havent heard from Mr Blair’s office yet but will share it as soon as we can verify or deny the contents of the letter.

From: Peter Galbraith <>
To: Osama Javaid <>Dear Osama,

This letter was exposed as a crude hoax 20 years ago. I cannot imagine why this forgery is being recycled today. There are many obvious signs of forgery and I won’t go through all of them. But, here are a few:

1. The forger misspelled my name. It is “Galbraith” not “Gailbraith”. Benazir and I were very close friends. She was also very close to my family, including my father who was a well known personality at Harvard and in South Asia. It is impossible that she would misspell the Galbraith family name.

2. I worked for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1990, and have never worked for the National Democratic Institute. Benazir knew this very well since she had practically lived in my office at various times in the 1980s.

3. Benazir was a Pakistani patriot who never advocated cutting off aid to Pakistan and would never have wanted Indian troops on the Pakistani border.

I was amazed that there were journalists and editors in Pakistan who actually fell for this hoax. I am sure you and Dawn are sophisticated enough to spot this obvious fraud which leads me to wonder why you have written me about it.

All the best

Peter Galbraith
