Another referendum: 'Whose Pakistan, Quaid’s or Altaf Hussain’s?'

JUI-F chief suggests another referendum for the citizens of Pakistan.


Web Desk November 07, 2012

QUETTA: We should also hold a referendum for citizens to decide between Quaid’s Pakistan or Altaf Hussain’s Pakistan, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Wednesday.

He was addressing a press conference in Quetta.

The JUI-F chief was laughingly responding to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) proposed referendum on what kind of Pakistan its citizens wanted to live in - Quaid’s Pakistan or Taliban’s Pakistan.

The MQM referendum, which was earlier scheduled to be held on November 8, is postponed to November 14.

Following this call for referendum, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan had announced its decision “to liberate Karachi” from the MQM, adding that “every step would be taken against them.”

TTP spokesperson Ehsanullah Ehsan had said that the decision was taken to set the people of Karachi free from the clutches of “these persecutors”.
