MQM Should be Treated as A Respectable and Loyal to Pakistan Political Party – Altaf Hussain

Altaf Hussain In a recent address to his followers in Karachi Altaf Hussain said MQM should be considered and treated as a respectable and faithful to Pakistn political party.

I think Altaf Hussain and his followers should ask this question to themselves.

Why Altaf Hussain felt the need for such a wish, appeal or demand. Usually he demands.

Why Altaf Hussain thinks people other than his followers do not believe that MQM is a loyal and faithful to Pakistan political party.

I believe he knows the answer. Then we don’t need to say any thing. And if he does not know the answer then MQM has a bigger problem than this question.

NA-246 Why PTI and Jama’at Islami Contesting Election Separately

There is a reason for that.

PTI and JI tried earlier to come up with one common candidate but later they realized it is not critical for them to win the seat. Why, we will come back to this point in a moment. While it is critical for MQM to win this seat particularly when a lot of evidences of terrorism, target killing, bhatta perchi and lastly big catch of illegal weapons and accused criminals from MQM headquarters at nine-zero.

Other than MQM party leaders everybody believe these accusations are true. Even the followers of MQM also believe their party has been involved not now but from the very beginning in these unlawful activities. Even Altaf Hussain has said more than once in his phonecasts speeches that MQM rabta committe members in Karachi have been involved in land grabbing and other undesirable activities.

There is a case under investigation against Altaf Hussain and other MQM leaders in the United Kingdom for money laundering and instigating his followers in Pakistan to kill their opponent. The case in point murdering of Zehra Shahid of PTI in Karachi.

London police is also investigating the murder case of Dr. Imran Farooq, a MQM leader. So far all the leads are ending up towards MQM.

As it was not enough, Saulat Mirza and Hamaad Siddiquee’s statements which involve MQM leadership in killings and other illegal activities further put Altaf Hussain and MQM leadership in defensive position.

In this situation MQM wants to win the election to show to the public that people (their voters) still believe in MQM that it is a clean party. But that thinking is like MQM cheating itself. That is why MQM thinks winning this by-election will help boost its voters and workers.

On the other hand PTI and JI want to gauge how much dent they have made on MQM’s voter base by rallying for election in NA-246 which is home ground of MQM. And what is the effect of aforementioned incidents and accusations on MQM’s reputation. That will help both of these parties to design their action plans for local government and future parliamentary elections.

An Appalling Act of Nawaz Sharif

In the joint session of parliament where Chinese president Xi Jinping was present, Nawaz Sharif taunting at Imran Khan said the Chinese president’s visit was postponed because of PTI’s dharna. All three heads of Pakistani Forces and other hundreds of guests were there. Nawaz Sharif could not hide his personal grudge with Imran Khan. Actually, he exposed himself. Everybody who listened to his scornful comments¬† thought how matured politician he is. It was a shameful act.

When dharna was going on Chines embassy in Islamabad issued a statement that date of the visit has not been decided yet. But Iqbal Hasan, Khawaja Asif and Khawaja Saad Rafiq contiue to repeat the same thing that visit of Chines president was postponed because of dharana. And because of that Pakistan has suffered billion of rupees. When the date was not decided yet then what was postponed. What you can sya other than dirty politics.

Nawaz Sharif had his personal political animosity with Imran Khan and he used his official position to take the revenge. It was an awful thing.¬† That also tells you how much Nawaz Sharif is afraid of Imran Khan’s success.

Nawaz Sharif gave preference to his personal grudge over Pakistan’s national interest. When we will have such political leaders obviously they will use their official position to their personal benefits. This is a tragedy of Pakistan.

MQM Attacked Jamat Islami Workers in Liaqatabad

This is a common pratice and MQM’s usual tactics first they will use violence and attack the opponet party then they will say they are peace lvong party. The other party attacked MQM workers. What a hypocricy.

Earlier MQM attacked PTI rally and today they attacked Jamat Islami workers. MQM is doing that because they know they have full sport of Provincial as well as Fedral government. Nobody will take any action against MQM.

An Appeal Against Altaf Hussain in Lahore High Court

Altaf Hussain An appeal has been filed in Lahore High Court today against Altaf Hussain. The petitioner Meher Fiaz, President of Lawyers’ Wing of PTI has submitted that Altaf Hussain is a British national so he can not head a political party in Pakistan. Therefore, he should be prohibited from making and broadcasting hate speeches against¬† Pakistan Army, other political parties and instigating violence in Pakistan.

The court has accepted the petition for hearing and has set the date April 15, 2015. This is a very important development. Nawaz Sharif and judiciary has to decide whether they should allow Altaf Hussain to broadcast hate speeches, instigate violence in Pakistan and create law and order situation in Karachi. Constitutionally no foreigner can participate in the politics of Pakistan. If he has taken a foreign citizenship then only because he was born in Pakistan does not qualify him to form, head and run a political party in Pakistan. This would be a test case for Nawaz Sharif and our judiciary. This case should also be seen in the context that Pakistan Rangers have already registered a case against Altaf Hussain after the raid at nine zero. This point may be noted that Altaf Hussain does not hold Pakistani passport or ID Card though by British law he can hold dual nationality.

Khursheed Shah on NA-246 Election

Khursheed Shah of Pakistan Peoples Party announced that PPP has not decided yet to support MQM candidate for NA-246 election or not.

Earlier, after the statement of Saulat Mirza who accused MQM leadership including Altaf Hussain in murders, kidnapping for ransom, target and sectarian killings etc. Asif Ali Zardari co-chairman of the PPP said we should support MQM in their this difficult time.

Should we assume PPP supports the activities of MQM particularly after the raid of MQM headquarters at nine zero and what was found there by Sind Rangers? PPP has not said anything so far on the catch.

Rangers’ Deployment During Elections for NA-246 Seat

Imran Khan has demanded Rangers should be assigned for NA-246 elections. During previous elections Rangers were deployed but outside of the polling booths. Until and unless Rangers are assigned inside the polling booths fairness of election and voting cannot be guaranteed because the ‘stamping and stuffing’, is done inside the booths. All political parties except Pakistan Peoples Party have raised such concerns of MQM stuffing the ballot boxes. In fact during the last election while the polling was still going on Jamaat-e-Islami announced boycott of the elections when Election Commission of Pakistan could not stop the interference of MQM in stuffing the ballot boxes.

What Election Commission of Pakistan is going to do different this time. We will have to wait and see for their announcement. But Imran Khan, PTI and Imran Ismail (PTI’s candidate) should demand very forcefully for the deployment of Rangers inside the polling booths.
