KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said that if his corpse can solve the issues of Karachi, then he is ready to return immediately. He was addressing an iftar dinner in Karachi on Monday.

Taking up the issues of Karachi, Hussain said that the extortion mafia has strengthened in the city, and if these activities are not curbed within four days, then the traders should take the issue in their own hands and defend themselves.

The government does not have the courage of holding talks with those involved in extortion, exhorted Hussain and added that he will fight for the traders’ rights till his last breath.

Commenting on the ongoing rift between the parliament and the judiciary, the party chief said that it has not yet been decided whether the parliament is superior or the Supreme Court, but, no one can take away the parliament’s rights to formulate laws.

Hussain also criticised the Supreme Court and said that the apex court could take notice and send a prime minister back home, but has not been able to do anything about the dead bodies surfacing in Balochistan every day.
