Forces supporting the status quo have never accepted the MQM and their conspiracies against the MQM have never stopped
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has said that certain state powers were planning to start another operation against the MQM similar to the operation conducted in 1992 by levelling concocted allegation in order to stop the MQM from making struggle against the decadent system in the country. He said that the MQM was being made a scapegoat but the elements who are conspiring to vanquish to the MQM should know that the MQM is not confined to Karachi alone now.
Speaking to the office-bearers and workers of the Lahore and Rawalpindi Zones of the MQM on telephone, Mr Hussain said that the MQM has its presence in Sindh, Punjab, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir. Those who are planning to eliminate the MQM should know that people across the country, including Punjab, would rise in protest if the MQM is subjected to any repressive action again.
Mr Hussain said that the MQM is the only political party in the country that has its roots in the poor and middle classes and it is making genuine efforts to break the status quo and abolish the age-old feudal system that is established in the country. The MQM has brought a revolutionary change in the political culture of the country by sending young people from poor and middle classes in the assemblies. The MQM wants to spread this change throughout the country.
He said, “We want the subjugated people of Punjab to break free from the clutches of cruel feudal lords. We want the feudal system to end so that the people of Punjab may also obtain freedom from the tyranny of the feudal lords.”
“The forces that want the status quo to continue in the country have never accepted the MQM with an open heart. They have always been plotting against the MQM. Allegations were levelled against the MQM in the past as well to justify the repressive state operation and poisonous propaganda was done in order to mislead the people.”
“Once again there are stirrings in the print and electronic media about starting an operation in Karachi similar to the one conducted in 1992. False and baseless allegations are being levelled against the MQM in order to crush it. Hence efforts are underway to silence the only voice being raised for the rights of people belonging to the poor and middle classes in the country.”
Mr Hussain declared that it is not 1992 and the MQM is present in across the length and breadth of the country including Punjab. If there are efforts to suppress the MQM in Karachi, then the oppressed people in Punjab and the rest of the country would rise in protest and frustrate the conspiracies against the MQM.
Mr Hussain asked the workers of the different zones of Punjab to remain steadfast prepare themselves for facing any type of circumstances. “We are the followers of Hazrat Hussain (May Allah be pleased with him). We did not bow down before injustices in the past and we would not do it even today. We would continue our struggle.”
The workers of assured Mr Hussain that they would not remain silent if strong arm tactics were used against the MQM. “We will protest and face every injustice with courage and determination. We would not desert the MQM under any condition.”
Mr Hussain praised the workers for their courage and determination and said, “I have firm belief in Almighty Allah that all conspiracies to crush the MQM would come to nothing and truth will prevail in the end.”
