KARACHI: MQM Chief Altaf Hussain has said that if 'patriotic Generals' take a martial law-like step against corrupt politicians, MQM will support them.

Addressing a general workers meeting at Lal-Qila ground in Aziz Abad on Sunday, Altaf said the country needs a revolution like France. He urged US president Obama to review his Pakistan policy and support people instead of landlords and corrupt politicians.

He said Pakistan’s foreign policy is weak as opposed to the Indian foreign policy, which he deemed effective. The MQM leader alleged that Pakistani rulers were busy in shopping abroad instead of presenting Pakistan's case, while the landlords diverted flood water towards the villages of poor people to save their own lands.

Asif Ali | 11 years ago | Reply In the heat of the discussion, the people are forgetting that When the US Consular Brian D. Hunt openly told him that some of the US policies towards Pakistan and Muslims are "questionable" and also are having "double-standard" for Muslims. NOW, who have the balls to say this except Mr. Altaf Hussain, as the current "sold-out" leadership "loves" to be the loyal friends of US an are basically US "lap-dogs". Mr. Altaf Hussain is the only political leader have the courage to say this "face to face", and proved that he is the "actual and real" leader" of Pakistan who has a clear conscience and the will to change the country.
