KARACHI: Mukka Chowk located in the stronghold of the MQM will have its name changed.
A notification is expected which will see the name of the famous landmark being changed to Shaheed-e-Milat Liaquat Ali Khan Chowk after Pakistan’s first prime minister.
Earlier, posters of MQM Quaid were removed from Mukka Chowk and Jinnah Ground.
The landmark was established in 1991 when Farooq Sattar was the city’s mayor and renovated in 2009 during the mayorship of Mustafa Kamal.
The development comes in the wake of MQM leader Farooq Sattar announcing that the party was distancing itself from provocative statements made by the MQM Quaid and his assuming control of the party.
Sattar further said that decisions regarding the MQM would now be made from Pakistan.
