ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) on Wednesday tabled a condemnation resolution against the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain's controversial statements regarding the Pakistan Army.
Addressing the media outside the Sindh Assembly, PTI MNA Dr Arif Alvi spoke about the numerous FIRs registered against the MQM chief recently in light of his hate speech.
"Filing FIRs is an act of desperation; over 30 FIRs have been lodged against Altaf Hussain across the country which is a good sign."
Alvi further added that even though action was taken against corrupt officials, they were forgiven under the controversial National Reconciliation Ordinance, reiterating that the same should not be done with supermodel Ayyan Ali, who was allegedly involved in money laundering and was recently granted bail.
"Several people including Wali Babar and his witnesses have been killed in the country and it is our responsibility to demand justice."
Expressing that Pakistan as a country is being insulted by its leaders, Alvi said "To retain some sanity in this country, I demand the Supreme Court to take suo moto notice of Ayyan Ali's case."
Mocking the relationship between MQM and Pakistan Peoples Party, Alvi told the media not to "fall for their act" and that "MQM and PPP fight during the day and are the best of friends by nightfall."
Meanwhile, MQM also submitted a condemnation resolution in Sindh Assembly against PTI chairman Imran Khan.
A spokesperson for MQM speaking to the media outside the Sindh Assembly stated that the entire country is aware of Imran Khan's past, accusing him of illicit relations with a woman in the United States.
