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.
