Washington, May 30 : Salman Ahmed of the rock group Junoon has said that the MQM once threatened him that if he did not perform at its rally, and his wife and children would be abducted.

In a statement issued here and quoted by the Daily Times, Ahmed described the incident as having happened in 1992.

"They have threatened me on many occasions in the past 15 years. One particular time was when I refused to perform at Altaf's marriage function in Karachi and London where all other artists, including Ali Azmat, were browbeaten into going and performing for 'his majesty's' pleasure. The man who threatened me was called 'Khalid bin Walid' and was a known terrorist and murderer," Ahmed was quoted , as saying.

Walid is said to have called Ahmed's staff and soundman, Ishtiaq Ahmed, and threatened them with dire consequences.

According to Salman Ahmed, "Ishtiaq pleaded with me to go and perform or risk being killed. In 1992, the MQM also threatened to abduct my wife and children if I did not show up at an MQM rally to welcome their leader, Azim Tariq."
