Political leaders, writers and intellectuals must bring the government and political parties on table for holding meaningful dialogues: Altaf Hussain


Political leaders, writers and intellectuals must bring the government and political parties on table for holding meaningful dialogues: Altaf Hussain
 Posted on: 10/1/2014
If the country is not pulled out of the political quagmire soon, the entire country might be put on stake
The Army is the last ray of hope for all the oppressed and disadvantaged people in the country

The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has said that the feud between the government and political parties has brought the country on the brink of bankruptcy. He warned if the differences were not resolved soon by serious and meaningful dialogues then a stage may come where the country as a whole or in parts might be put on stake. He said this while talking to members of the Co-ordination Committee in London and Pakistan and office-bearers of different departments of the MQM on telephone. 
Mr Hussain appealed to the leaders of political and religious parties, serious and honest writers and intellectuals to step forward for resolving the issues by bringing both the government and the political parties on the table in order to pull the country out of the present political quagmire.
When some members of the Co-ordination Committee drew the attention of Mr Hussain towards the reservation being shown by certain quarters on the letter addressed to the Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif containing fourteen questions, he said that the army is the last ray of hope for all the oppressed and disadvantaged people who had been victimized relentlessly in the country. 
Mr Hussain said, he not only respects the army as a Pakistani but also recognizes their countless sacrifices for the country. He said, if certain elements were violating the dignity of the army by wearing its uniform, it was the duty of every true Pakistani to point it out. 
Mr Hussain said that on one the one hand thousands of soldiers were engaged in a fierce battle with the terrorists and sacrificing their lives in North Waziristan while on the other hand they were helping the IDPs and those affected by devastating floods. 
Mr Hussain said people look towards their own people in the time of need and distress. He said he looked upon the Pakistan Army as its protector like any other Pakistani, and there was nothing wrong if he sought help from the army.
Mr Hussain apologized if his words had hurt the feelings of anyone.
