“President Asif Ali Zardari phoned me and said MQM is planning to kill my son Hasnain Mirza and Sindh local government minister Agha Siraj Durrani while federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik is hatching a conspiracy to kill me,” Mirza told a Sindh TV channel (KTN) on Friday.
Mirza said the president called him a day before he had addressed a press conference at the Karachi Press Club and was shocked to know that his own friends were planning to kill him.
“The president also asked me to avoid meeting these people,” he said.
The home minister went on to say that he would never consider rejoining the party until Rehman Malik was relinquished of his duties and the government broke their alliance with the MQM.
