ALTAF HUSSAIN DID NOT ACCEPT A SINGLE PENNY FROM ANY AGENCY

ALTAF HUSSAIN DID NOT ACCEPT A SINGLE PENNY FROM ANY AGENCY OR THEIR PROXIES: MQM SPOKESMAN
THE ONLY CRIME OF ALTAF HUSSAIN WAS THAT HE HAD SPURNED ALL ATTEMPTS BY THE AGENCIES TO BUY HIS CONSCIENCE
LONDON: 8TH MARCH 2012
The spokesman of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) has stated unequivocally and in no uncertain terms, that Mr Altaf Hussain had never taken a single penny from the ISI, any other government agency or any other individual and there was no truth in the allegations levelled against him by certain people.
The spokesman declared it was a fact that the government agencies had made numerous attempts to buy off Mr Hussain. In 1988 Brigadier Imtiaz of the ISI had brought money to Mr Hussain from General Hamid Gul but Mr Hussain had refused to take it. This was acknowledged by Brigadier Imtiaz sometimes ago on the media.
Likewise, in 1990 Brigadier Hamid had brought money to Mr Hussain from General Mirza Aslam Beg but Mr Hussain had refused to accept that as well. The affidavit submitted by the then head of the ISI General Assad Durrani in the Supreme Court, containing the list of the politicians who had accepted money from the ISI, is testimony to the fact that Mr Hussain did not accept the money as his name is not in the list. The sworn statement of General Assad Durrani was a part of the record of the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
The spokesman said that the allegations against Mr Hussain from the former head of the Mehran Bank of accepting money through one Yousuf Advocate was an utter lie, and the MQM condemns it in the strongest possible terms.
The spokesman said that the only crime of Mr Hussain was that he had spurned all attempts by the government agencies and their proxies to buy off his conscience. It was because of that refusal to sell off his conscience that unfounded allegations were levelled against him in the past in order to smear his image in public. Attempts were being made to mislead the public by making fabricated and baseless allegations against Mr Hussain.
The spokesman said that the leadership of the MQM was clean having a clear conscience and ready to defend the allegations at every forum.
