September 02, 2010

Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday said that the people are geared up for a revolution and Pakistan will see a one similar to that of France.

Altaf Hussain said poverty and inflation have risen to a level where it is difficult to stop the way for a revolution. He called for bringing those who looted the national exchequer to justice.

He said that the MQM will lead this impending revolution and added that he is not afraid of being dragged into courts.

He gave these statements while addressing the launch of a book written by MQM coordinating committee deputy convenor Anees Qaim Khani in Karachi.

The MQM chief has made several similar statements in the past few days and he has received much criticism from different political parties for his statements calling for a revolution.

The PML-N, ANP and the Jamaat-i-Islami had submitted privilege motions in the parliament against Altaf Hussain for his earlier statements calling for a 'patriotic general' to deal with corrupt politicians.

The MQM recently announced that Altaf Hussain has decided to talk to the people over the telephone every Sunday from 5pm to 7pm.
The people can contact him on 00 44 208 905 7300.

Liaquat Ali | 11 years ago | Reply Opinions are like noses. Everyone has got one. The taasubi (bigoted) commentators continue to whine about Altaf Hussain's British passport without bothering to find out why he had to get a British passport to start off with. Also, it is way too much thinking for them to figure out why the Pakistani Embassy in the UK continues to refuse to issue him a Pakistani passport. If Altaf Hussain goes to Pakistan with his British passport he will either: 1. Be eliminated physically, 2. Thrown in jail for the cooked up charges PPP and PML-N made against him, 3. Thrown in jail by making a fresh list of charges against him in the 1990s, or 4. Be sent back to UK through the diplomatic technicality of "persona non grata." Altaf Hussain is God's gift to Pakistan; a nation of perpetual juveniles who refuse to grow up. Respect the gift and compete/collaborate with China and India. Otherwise, be disintegrated into pieces only to be claimed by Iran, United States of Afghanistan, China and India.
Engr Nasir Jamal | 11 years ago | Reply Will someone please give a better solution if one does not agree with Altaf Hussain? I am looking forward to hearing a single solution? By the way who welcomed General Pervez Musharraf? The people of Pakistan or Altaf Hussain? Had Altaf Hussain been a supporter of military dictatorship he would have solidly supported the general in his referendum. But the memories are short lived. Those who were raised under the umbrella of dictatorship have become the champions of democracy and those who suffered under military dictatorship are being reviled as undemocratic.
