Muttahida Quami Movement chief Altaf Hussain has said that no nation could develop with mere lip-service and beautiful words.
“The essential ingredients required to become a developed nation include continuous process of self-accountability, patriotism, honesty and exemplary character,” he added.
Mr Hussain expressed these views during a telephonic conversation with the members of the MQM’s Coordination Committees of Karachi and London, simultaneously.
Cautioning that the country was passing through a crucial stage in the wake of internal and external threats, poor law and order situation and several other issues, he said that the need of the hour was to face all such challenges keeping in view the ground realities and not on personal whims and wishes.
Though the people could befool themselves by ignoring ground realities, they become victim of frustration and tension, he said, adding that it was essential to analyze the ground realities with a cool mind so as to refrain from troubles and stresses, or else it becomes a cause of new diseases.
Emphasising the need for determining the time required for finding out solutions of the challenges being confronted by the country with honesty keeping in view ground realities and one should not get disappointed and dejected in case more time was consumed in doing so.
