My heart weeps when people are killed because of their religious belief and sect
Conversation with religious scholar Khanam Tayyaba Bukhari
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has said that the purpose of his struggle is to transform Pakistan into a country where no one could be killed because of his religion or sect. I want to change it into a country where everyone enjoys equal protection of life and property and they have equal rights. He said this while talking to prominent religious scholar Khanam Syeda Tayyaba Bukhari on telephone.
"My struggle is not limited to any particular segment. I am struggling for all. My heart weeps when Shias and Sunnis are killed because of their sect. I am sorely grieved to know that Shia pilgrims have been killed in the bomb blast in a bus in Mustang area of Balochistan."
"I want this violence and bloodshed to end and people should respect the life and property of each other."
Khanam Bukhari said that the entire Shia community recognizes the fact that whenever an act of injustice is committed the Shias or any other oppressed people, Altaf Hussain is the first to raise his voice against it. "No other leader has shown this courage"
She said, "It is a fact that Altaf Hussain does not speak for the Mohajirs or any other particular segment. He has raised his voice without any discrimination for everyone. His voice is an expression for the rights of the people of Pakistan."
"Altaf Hussain is not only the most powerful leader of the Mohajirs but he also speaks resolutely for the oppressed people throughout Pakistan."
Khanam Tayyaba said that the Pakistan needs Altaf Hussain so that it may become a strong and powerful country under his leadership. She prayed for the well-being of Mr Hussain in the end.
