Altaf said he was well aware of the fact that there was a feeling of confusion among the workers and the general public on some news reports.

He called upon his party members to show patience and perseverance in difficult times.

Altaf said actions were being taken at national and international levels to break his determination and to frighten the MQM workers. He said that leaders, workers and sympathisers of no other Pakistani political party were meted out the same treatment.

He declared that such tactics would not be able to diminish their resolve and determination of the MQM.

He said that the MQM had been facing difficulties and hardships for the past 35 years. Thousands of MQM workers were martyred and many more put behind bars but the MQM could not be broken by injustices and oppression.

Why do you people even support this man? He invites violence and hatred against individuals who oppose him, he does not seek to cooperate, or better the state of Pakisan (by that I mean Karachi). Every time one of the their workers are killed, they protest in the streets and shut down all the stores and markets. Are they blind that don't realize how much economic activity is lost in Karachi, how much it affects people who are struggling to survive? They are the only political party who behaves in this notorious way. They bully the local populace, take over public parks as their own territory; they are a group of thugs who have no acceptable vision for the future except harass the population and line their own pockets, only because they are MQM members. Please stop supporting this organization; it feeds on hatred and other governments are beginning to take notice (first Canada, now UK).
