LONDON/KARACHI – Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain on Wednesday assured that the blood of innocent MQM workers won’t go unrewarded. He has also shown his grief over the assassination of MQM leader Bau Anwar.
Altaf Hussain has said that his party reserved the right to protest if the federal government and the provincial government of Punjab did not take notice of the killing of vice-president of MQM in Sialkot.
He warned that the entire country would be rocked with protest demonstrations if the people showed their emotions on this injustice. He said that the federal government and the Punjab government would be responsible for the outpouring of public emotions.
Altaf Hussain Hussain said, “Police was present at the distance of a few steps when the terrorists fired on Bau Muhammad Anwar but they stood as silent spectators and did nothing.” “Where is Chief Minister Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif? Where is Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and where is Rana Sanaullah?”
“I don’t care whether those in Britain hang me or award life imprisonment, but I will not refrain from telling the truth. I will not bow down before anyone… No matter they register cases against me, I have been facing such cases for the last 25 years,” he said in a charged atmosphere.
While talking to the workers of MQM via telephone in Karachi, Altaf Hussain said that 400 MQM leaders had been killed in various incidents in two years whereas MQM chief has also wished to die as a martyr. He has revealed that at least three terrorists opened fire at Bau Anwar and killed him whereas police were standing there still.
The MQM Chief asked the apex Pakistan Army, Inter-services Intelligence (ISI), Establishment and Nawaz Sharif that why no action has been taken on the assassination of our leader as we had also condemned the sad incident of Faisalabad.
The MQM leader further stated that a treason case would have been filed against me, if I would have given a civil disobedience call but Imran Khan led the disobedience throughout the country.
Criticizing Imran Khan, he added that the secret agencies are behind him whereas no one is saying anything to him. Altaf Hussain asserted that no minister of Punnjab will be allowed to enter in Sindh if killings continue. If Mahajirs are culprit then file case against them either than throwing their bodies on the roads.
He affirmed to make strategy over the suspicious murder of Bao Anwar till the night. Altaf demanded the British government to return his passport so that he would be able to return Pakistan, however, calling the British government, he stated that he won’t stop himself from talking the truth.
“I appeal British government to return my passport, I want to go back to Pakistan to embrace martyrdom for the cause of my party,” said the MQM. Establishment must be regretting for not shooting me until now, he added.
Further, the attendees of the public gathering also chanted slogans to show their support with the MQM chief. Altaf Hussain also enraged over the careless attitude of Rabitta Committee and criticized their performance.
He has also complained that government is not taking any action by hiding all the news related to MQM and has also alleged Bilawal Bhutto, Asif Ali Zardari and Qaim Ali Shah for creating disturbance in the province as they have not provided security to the leadership of MQM.
He has urged his supporters to lead rallies and raise slogans against the performanance of Punjab government. Moreover, Altaf Hussain has announced to become senator in the coming elections.
Earlier today, he suspended party’s Rabita Committees (coordination committee) in London and Karachi over lackluster reaction of his party leaders over assassination of Bau Muhammad Anwar. The MQM chief expressed his annoyance with television channels for not giving due coverage to the party over Anwar’s killing.
“Dozens of TV channels held talk shows over PTI worker Haq Nawaz’s murder, but they are ignoring us. This is unacceptable,” the MQM chief warned media channels. In a statement earlier today, Hussain said MQM reserves right to protest if the federal government and the provincial government of Punjab did not take notice of the killing of vice-president of MQM in Sialkot.
He warned that entire country would be rocked with protest demonstrations “if the people showed their emotions on this injustice”. He said federal government and the Punjab government would be responsible for the outpouring of public emotions.
