KARACHI: Chief of Muttahida Qaumi Movement Altaf Hussain on Tuesday appealed Indian leaders to give asylum to Mohajir community of Pakistan, ARY NEWS reports.
He asked “if the 1992-like operation was started against MQM, will the Indian leaders provide asylum to us?”
In his telephonic speech from London to a gathering of party workers at Lal Qila ground, the MQM chief “has the Indian leaders Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh such a big heart to accept at least five crore Moharar people who are facing discriminatory attitude here”.
He condemned the violent incidents in Karachi, saying that the government has failed.
“People of Kasba colony were killed sans any mistake. Where were police, Rangers and Sindh government at that time…most of those killed were innocent people,” he said, adding that
Peace in Karachi was deliberately destroyed my miscreant elements.
Altaf said that the government has failed to overcome the situation in Karachi and demanded that army and Rangers should come to control the law and order. “The action should even be taken against MQM if it is involved in the violence,” he said.
The MQM chief claimed that his faction is not against any community.
“We are not against anybody; we neither are against Pashtoons and nor against Punjabis, but MQM is against feudal system and those who looted wealth of this country.”
