Take action against MQM if found involved: Altaf Hussain

Take action against MQM if found involved: Altaf KARACHI: MQM Chief Altaf Hussain said Wednesday that the government had failed to control terrorists and the Rangers and army should come to Karachi and see who is involved in terrorism, Geo News reported.

Speaking to party leaders via telephone from London, the MQM Chief said that action should be taken against those involved in terrorist activities.

He added that action should also be taken against the MQM if it is found involved. Speaking about the recent violence in Karachi, Altaf Hussain said he had given a 48 hour deadline to the government to restore peace in the city.

Those who claim ownership of Pakistan today had actually been slaves of Hindu Bania (during pre-partition) and the freedom they were enjoying today is because of the Mohajirs' struggle. "Pakistan came into being because of Mohajirs," he maintained.

He said Mohajirs had not come to Pakistan empty handed and demanded of the international community to accept their presence.

"Mohajirs are no longer Mohajirs here because it is their fifth generation that is now living in Pakistan," Altaf Hussain argued.

Drawing attention of Sindhis, the MQM Chief said 'if you are 200-year old Sindhis then we are 70-year old Sindhis'.

He said innocent people were being butchered in Karachi and that criminals and land mafia were enjoying patronization. "Stop the people who are patronizing criminal elements," Altaf Hussain urged the President, Prime Minister and Chief Minister Sindh.

The MQM Chief said the Army must come to Karachi and see for itself who is involved in the killings. If even a single MQM worker is found involved, action be taken against him, he added.

"I want peace in Karachi at all cost. I hate violence. I want Pakistan to make progress and corruption be rooted out," he said, adding, he was ready to renounce the party leadership if it could bring peace to the city.
