Altaf needs bodies for politics, says Kamal

MQM can't deny that its chief Altaf Hussain paid millions of rupees to establish contact with ISI former chief

HYDERABAD: Karachi’s former city nazim and head of the newly formed Pak Sarzamin Party (PSP), Mustafa Kamal, has claimed that his April 24 rally in Karachi will remove all stigmas from the people of Karachi and Hyderabad and no one will call them ‘Indian agents’ or enemies of the state now.

“April 24 will usher in a new era and will bury 30 years of Khurafaat [futile things],” Kamal said on Friday in a reference to the politics of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) which was launched around 30 years back.

Altaf Hussain plays politics on grievances of masses: Mustafa Kamal

Kamal, a former MQM leader who announced his breakaway faction on March 2, was addressing a press conference in Hyderabad together with other PSP leaders – Anis Qaimkhani, Raza Haroon, Anis Ahmed and Waseem Aftab.

He said peoples’ response to his new party was far more positive than expected and that nobody would now be able to “sow a seed of discord among us on the basis of language, ethnicity, sect and provincialism”.

In a reference to the MQM, he said nothing could be achieved even after decades of struggle and loss of 20 thousand lives. He said the MQM could not deny that its chief Altaf Hussain had paid millions of rupees to a con artist just to establish contact with ISI former chief.

He said Altaf was least concerned about the life of his workers and only needed dead bodies to continue his hegemony. He said just like Balochistan where separatists fighting against state were offered amnesty, a political package should also be announced for the MQM workers.

Kamal asked as to why the MQM was silent over allegations levelled against it by Tariq Mir and Sarfraz Merchant. “Tariq Mir has claimed that the MQM leaders in London had had four meetings with RAW officials. If this is untrue then why Altaf is silent,” he said.

Ch. Allah Daad | 6 years ago | Reply Still no sign of widespread cracks are observed in MQM. My suggestion is to hire few anarchists from Establishment's U19 team (PTI). They are all free these days.
