KKF operations would be expended in coming days and new ambulance centres would be established in additional cities
Address at the base camps in Hyderabad and Sukkur set up for collecting hides of sacrificial animals under the KKF
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has said that the purpose of the MQM’s politics is not merely to attain to political power, but serving the humanity. “Serving the people is our politics and our politics centres around serving the people and this has always been our prime objective and guiding principle.” He said this while addressing large gatherings of MQM office-bearers workers in the base camps in Hyderabad and Sukkur set up for collecting hides of sacrificial animals under Khidmat-e-Khalq Foundation.
Mr Hussain said, “We have been serving poor and destitute people, irrespective of the prejudices of race, colour, language and religion, ever since we started our struggle. The scope of our relief activities is constantly increasing and our commitment to serve the needy has been endorsed by the people in the form of unprecedented donations of hides of sacrificial animals to our welfare organization this year.”
Mr Hussain said it was a matter of happiness for everyone that the KKF had received hides throughout Pakistan besides the cities and towns of Sindh, and all past records had been broken. He paid glowing tributes to the workers and said that the history they were writing with their selfless struggle would be a source of inspiration for the oppressed and disadvantaged people of the world.
Mr Hussain announced that the operations of the KKF would be widened in the coming days, and 100 additional ambulances would be provided at the KKF ambulance centres in different parts of the country soon. He also announced that ambulance centres would be established in more cities in the future.
Mr Hussain said that a dialysis centre would be built in Hyderabad for treating kidney diseases. If the charitable people contributed for the purchase of machinery, a hospital for heart diseases could also be established in order to facilitate the people of Hyderabad and Interior Sindh. He announced two million rupees for building an IT institute in Hyderabad.
Mr Hussain praised the workers of Mirpurkhas, Tando Allahyar, Tando Muhammad Khan, Kotri, and other zones adjoining Hyderabad.
Mr Hussain praised the workers of Sukkur, Kashmore, Jacobabad and other zones adjoining Sukkur for collecting hides of sacrificial animals in a large number in spite of difficult circumstances.
Addressing different communities of Sukkur, he said, “We had been weakening our strength by remaining divided on the lines of caste and communities and hence hurting the common interests of the people. It is the need of the hour for the various communities living in Sukkur to get firmly united and tell the world that they cannot be separated from the MQM.”
Mr Hussain said that conspiracies were being hatched to divide the people, but the MQM would frustrate these conspiracies. He said that exploitative forced had tried to draw a wedge between Sindhis and Mohajirs but the people disappointed them, and they have decided that they would not fight with one another.
Mr Hussain said that the MQM had held the largest public meeting of the Pakhtun people in the history of Karachi and now the plots to set Pakhtun and Mohajirs against each other have died down. People belonging to different nationalities and hailing from different social backgrounds are being attracted towards the MQM in large numbers.
