MQM IS A PEACEFUL DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT BELIEVES IN DEMOCRACY AND DOES NOT WANT MARTIAL LAW IN THE COUNTRY- ALTAF HUSSAIN
IF THE ISSUES ARE NOT RESOLVED THROUGH DIALOGUE AND THE PATH OF CONFRONTATION IS ADOPTED THEN PERHAPS THE ARMY WILL BE LEFT WITH NO OPTION BUT TO INTERVENE TO SAVE THE COUNTRY
GOVERNMENT CAN TAKE TWO STEPS BACKWARD AND ADOPT THE PATH OF RECONCILIATION
HE ALSO STRESSED THE "SIT-IN" PARTIES TOO NEED TO DEMONSTRATE FLEXIBILITY AND REMOVE THE WRONGS THROUGH CONTITUTIONAL AND LEGAL REFORMS
 
MQM is a peaceful democratic party that believes in democracy and does not want Martial Law in the country. MQM wishes that all political disputes and crises is resolved through meaningful dialogue. If the issues are not resolved through dialogue and the path of confrontation is adopted then perhaps the Army will be left with no option but to intervene to save the country. This was stated by MQM Founder & Leader Mr Altaf Hussain while addressing the 18th  Annual Convention of MQM USA over the phone from London. The Convention was held in 23 States of USA and attended by a large number of Pakistanis. Mr Hussain deliberated in detail of the MQM's peaceful struggle, its Manifesto and the current political scenario of Pakistan.
 
Commenting on the current political crises Mr Hussain stressed the need of the time is to resolve the current political crises through meaningful dialogue. Government can take two steps backward and adopt the path of reconciliation. He also stressed the "sit-in" parties too need to demonstrate flexibility and remove the wrongs through constitutional and legal reforms. He emphasised that even after confrontation all issues are resolved through meaningful dialogue, therefore, why not sit and negotiate to resolve all issues. If the MQM would not have mediated and performed its reconciliatory role to end the cordon of Model Town in Lahore, then even before the start of Inqilab (Revolution) March, we would have witnessed bloodshed and mayhem.
 
Speaking on Talibanisation in Pakistan Mr Hussain said that after the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan the then Pakistani rulers to please the USA and for temporary gains, declared the Cold War between USA and Soviet Union as the war between Kufr and Islam and surrendered Pakistan in such a way that Pakistan became the safe haven for all the mujahideens from around the world. After the defeat of Soviet Union the mujahideen commenced their terrorist activities in Pakistan. The Taliban terrorists targeted the mosques, imam bargahs, tombs of sufis and saints, Armed Forces installations and other government assets in Pakistan. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA the Taliban bombed 70 percent girls schools and other educational institutions. Mr Hussain reminded that he was the only leader who warned of the growing danger of Talibans but unfortunately and sadly his warnings were ridiculed on the pretext that he was scaring the people, however, later on, his apprehensions proved true and factual. Today, by the grace of Allah Almighty, the Pakistan Army and people of Pakistan are on one page and our brave soldiers under the courageous leadership of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) is busy in eliminating the menace of terrorism and offering sacrifices.
 
Mr Altaf Hussain said that MQM is the only political party in Pakistan which has emerged from the poor and middleclass. MQM is not a party of one family but it is truly a peoples party; whereas, other parties have familial traits. MQM is not struggling for the rule of one family but it is struggling for the rule of poor and middleclass honest and competent people. MQM believes in such a democracy where familial politics has no place. He said that neither he himself nor any member of his family contest elections to become members of Parliament of provincial assemblies. It is always the worker of the Movement that are selected to contest elections and sent to the Parliament and provincial assemblies. He reiterated that MQM wants such a system in Pakistan where rich, poor and all enjoy equal rights irrespective of their colour, ethnicity, religion or language and equal opportunities are offered to all.  MQM wants to eliminate the dual education system from the country and establish a system where the children of rich and poor are offered education with dignity and honour. MQM does not believe in hatred. During the 2005 horrific earthquake in Azad Kashmir, cyclone in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, famine in Balochistan, or any other natural calamity elsewhere in the country, MQM on every occasion were in the forefront to offer its services to provide relief to the effected, which proves that MQM does not believe in hatred but in fact believes in love and respect for humanity.
 
Mr Hussain praised the role of overseas Pakistanis in the development and progress of Pakistan and repeated his demand that dual national Pakistanis must be allowed not only to vote but also the right to contest the Elections. He congratulated the office bearers and workers of MQM USA on the 18th Annual Convention and said that the sacrifices of our martyrs are valuable and we must never forget them and always be willing to look after, help and assist their loved ones in all possible way. In the end he asked the participants to continue with their efforts towards spreading the Movement's vision.
