Speech Against Pak Army by MQM Altaf Hussain
Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Sunday termed Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain’s statement tantamount to waging war against the country.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad the federal interior minister said, “The hate-inciting speech, made in a foreign country last night, crossed all limits. Heads of key institutions were insulted.” He added that, “Sarcastic poems were read against the armed forces of Pakistan and accusations were levelled against the army.”The interior minister was of the view that “these statements cannot exhibit the sentiments of a patriotic Pakistani”.
“MQM leader Farooq Sattar on August 27, 2013 had demanded that Karachi be handed over to the army. The perception that the operation in Karachi is against the MQM or that the operation only targets one specific party is absolutely wrong, as the action has been taken across the board.”
