KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder and chief Altaf Hussain said today that the MQM revolution of mass mobilization will one day reach corridors of power in Islamabad and justice will prevail through it.
The exiled leader of Karachi’s strong party said that feudalism and democracy are ideological antonyms but in Pakistan, most of the parties are of feudal background and do not want public power to reign over the country.
Altaf Hussain claimed that if his party be in Islamabad, the recent case of self-immolation of an 18 year old rape victim would not have surfaced as MQM leaders themselves are common people and know how to fight feudals.
He remembered the old days of his party leadership and said that his nephew and maternal uncle were both killed by establishment due to his (Altaf’s) pursuance of politics.
He called on the army to disobey such rulers which bring bad name to the county by sending them to other countries by accepting dollars in return.
Speaking on the Shia Sunni issue, he expressed fear that giving air to such controversial issue is a plot by international forces to bring chaos and unrest to Pakistan.
Founded by Altaf Hussain, MQM is the dominant party in Karachi. It was founded in 1984 by Altaf Hussain. At the time of inception, MQM represented only the Muhajir community but after several years, the Muhajir Qaumi Movement changed its name to Muttahida Qaumi Movement, thus welcoming all ethnic groups of Pakistan into its folds
