Altaf Hussain stresses need for joint struggle against terrorism

Altaf Hussain stresses need for joint struggle against terrorism
 Posted on: 4/16/2013
Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain said here on Tuesday that independent election campaign was currently going on only in Punjab whereas scare and harassment was being spread in three other provinces of the country.
Stating this during his telephonic conversation with Awami National Party (ANP) leader Asfandaryar Wali Khan, the MQM chief said that since acts of terrorism had touched its peak in three provinces of the country except Punjab, all the forces becoming victim of terrorism will have to chalk out a joint modus operandi to counter terrorism.
Mr Asfandaryar Wali Khan spontaneously replied that Mr Altaf Hussain was the only leader in the country who had openly condemned the acts of terrorism when the latter expressed his heartfelt condolences him over the deaths of his party leaders and workers in the recent acts of terrorism.
Referring to his statement in which he had strongly condemned the attack on Sardar Sanaullah Zehri, Mr Hussain asked “whether only Punjab is Pakistan as it is the only province where electioneering was being carried out freely while the worst kind of terrorism was continuing in the remaining three provinces of the country and whose residents are passing their lives as if their step-sons.”
Advocating the need for launching a joint struggle against terrorism, Mr Hussain told Mr Wali that “though we had lived our lives, but we will have think about our young and future generation.”
At this, the ANP leader said that it was under a calculated move a conspiracy was being hatched to keep the liberal-minded forces away from assemblies.
“Leftist forces are now being eliminated and a plan is being made to bring in right-wing extremists in the assemblies,” Mr Wali said and warned that the country would suffer a lot if a notice of such a situation was not taken.
Referring to the conspiracies of Pakhtun-Mohajir riots in Karachi, Mr Hussain said that when we had spoken against the extremists it was termed anti-Pakhtun, but it was due to MQM’s sustained policy of peace and love such a conspiracy was now coming to an end and it could be proved through the fact that Pakhtuns have been visiting his house daily and a good number of Pakhtuns living in Karachi had joined MQM.
Lauding the MQM’s role in bringing an end to the conspiracies of Mohajir-Pakhtun riots, Mr Wali said that Pakhtuns had now come to know about such conspiracies, saying his services in this regard would always be available.
