Patron-in-chief of MQM North America Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Patron of MQM North America Ibad Rehman, Central organizer of MQM Canada Iqbal Qamar and members of central organizing committee have appreciated and passed warm wishes to the Founding leader of MQM, Altaf Hussain for awarding the gold medal to Ms. Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy who is the first Pakistani who has won an Oscar at the Academy of Motions Arts and Sciences in recognition of her talent that she has used to bring attention to the acid attacks against women in Pakistan.  
They also said that Sharmeen Chinoy's outstanding services through film bring light to this gross injustice against Pakistani women whereby their facial features are destroyed by a group of patriarchal and violent men engaging in the most inhumane act of throwing acid on women is praise-worthy. Additionally, MQM has taken a brave step in recognizing the champion of women rights and Oscar winning movie director.
