I have never preached corruption, fraud, and misuse of position to workers: Altaf Hussain


I have never preached corruption, fraud, and misuse of position to workers: Altaf Hussain
 Posted on: 5/24/2013
I have always asked workers to refrain from social evils
Address to the second session of the meeting of the provisional Co-ordination Committee, dissolved Co-ordination Committee and office-bearers of various wings

London: 24th May 2013
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has said that he had never preached corruption, fraud, cheating, overstepping and misuse of authority and indulging in social evils to his workers. He said that he had been asking his workers to refrain from these evils since 1978. He said this while addressing the second session of the meeting of the provisional Co-ordination Committee, the dissolved Co-ordination Committee and office-bearers of various wings at Nine Zero.

Mr Hussain said that state and government repression was used against the MQM to finish it during the past 35 years of its struggle. Thousands of workers were martyred and many were maimed and wounded. Altaf Husain’s family belonged to the lower middle class and not hailed from business class. Members of his family worked hard for getting education and got jobs of officer grade purely on merit.

Mr Hussain said that his 70-year old brother and 28-year old nephew were brutally tortured and killed during the operation against the MQM like any other worker. He said that his family was forced to go in exile for saving the lives of their children and worked hard in foreign lands to earn a livelihood. People might be surprised to know that his brother-in-law, who was an officer in Siemens Pakistan, and brother, who was an officer in KESC, had to work as peons and security guards in foreign countries.

Mr Hussain said that he was putting these things before the people because he had never obtained any benefit for his family. He said that he never allowed his family members to take any benefit from the MQM and did not give to them tickets for elections.

Mr Hussain said that he had done reorganization in the MQM on several occasions for reforming the party but this time he had to take very difficult decision for which he used the power vested in him by the party constitution. He said that he dissolved the Co-ordination Committee by exercising his powers. He said that certain office-bearers were suspended while some were expelled from the party on public complaints.
