All parties should unite to oust govt: Altaf Hussain

MQM chief Altaf Hussain believes the present govt is not democratic, and called it an “authoritarian democracy”.


Express July 10, 2011

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said that the present government has restored the British-era commissionerate system just to retain its rule, Express 24/7 reported on Sunday.

Altaf Hussain said he believes the present government system is not a democratic one, and called it an “authoritarian democracy” system.

He said all political parties should work together on a one-point agenda to get rid of this authoritarian democracy.

Altaf Hussain paid rich tributes to the victims of Kati Pahari, Orangi Town and Qasba Colony.

He assured the victims that the MQM will not leave them at the mercy of terrorists.

The MQM’s Coordination Committee will hold a meeting today (Sunday)  at the party’s Nine-Zero headquarters, to apprise the nation about its future course of action vis-à-vis the new system.

I don't wanna comment on other parties but would suggest that Imran Khan must stay away from the current trap designed by MQM and PML-N and few others, for their own political reasons.No, PPP are not angels but to invite and welcome Army in national politics, and appreciating such a disorder would prove to be fatal for Imran Khan afterwards.

I wonder how long is this order is valid for. Will it be revoked when MQM joins gov once again?

@Pakistan "Get a democratic and patriotic dictator like the previous one one.. Build the fundamentals for democracy such as education.. Elimination of feudals..corruption.. Then bring democracy" He had 9 years. Feudals and lotas were nourished and education was not allocated any resonable budget. I hope next elections are fair and free and people choose honest representatives.
