Dr Aamir Liaquat resigns
Earlier this week, Aamir Liaquat said during a television interview that Salman Rushdie should be killed for blaspheming the Holy Prophet (pbuh) in his book, Satanic Verses.
The sources said since the MQM felt the statement was in conflict with the party’s policy,
Dr Aamir was asked to resign. However, in his resignation letter, he stated that he was resigning because of ‘personal reasons’.
He has tendered his resignation from his office and from his national assembly membership on July 4, 2007 after his party chief Altaf Hussain reacted strongly to Aamir Liaquat's statements against the Knighthood of Salman Rushdie. 
He became a controversy in his own party and was forced to resign when he issued statements against Salman Rushdie, the controversial British Knight accused of blasphemy against Muhammad. These statements had caused trouble for party chief Altaf Hussain who is London based.
