Senior Politician Makhdoom Javed Hashmi calls Altaf Hussain

Senior Politician Makhdoom Javed Hashmi calls Altaf Hussain
 Posted on: 9/10/2014
The situation demands that all religious and political parties put aside their differences till the torrential rains and floods stop
The Founder and Leader of MQM Mr Altaf Hussain has said that some elements use the word ‘democracy’ to please western countries. He added that their style of politics, manners and attitude indicated that they were tyrants or dictators.
Mr Hussain expressed these views while talking to senior politician and former member of the National Assembly Makhdoom Javed Hashmi on phone.
The two leaders inquired about each other’s health and expressed feelings of goodwill for each other.
Talking to Mr Hashmi Mr. Hussain said that he was one of the leading politicians of Pakistan who had sacrificed all his life for democracy. He added that it was deplorable that opportunists had captured Pakistan in the name of democracy and these people wanted to keep their control over Pakistan. He said that these people wanted to give the world an impression that they loved democracy whereas it was a fact that they did not follow even the basic norms of democracy.
Mr Hussain told Mr Hashmi that he considered him a sincere Pakistani and he had great respect for him. 
“In your democratic struggled you suffered imprisonment, solitary confinement and torture. Your life is full of struggle. On behalf of my colleagues and me, I pay you tributes for your struggle for democracy,” Mr. Hussain said.
“I have made repeated appeals in my statement that the country is passing through a difficult time. Pakistanis who have been affected by torrential rains and floods need our help. Floods have caused massive deaths and devastation. People are starving and struck by diseases. Victims have lost all their savings. They have become homeless because floods have swept their homes. We should put aside our engagements and help victims of torrential rains and floods, “Mr Hussain said.
“The situation demands that all religious and political parties should put aside their differences and fighting till the torrential rains and floods stop. You have whole life for politics. It is not necessary that we should complete our mission now. Victims of natural disasters need our attention urgently. I have been trying after the Model Town and Islamabad tragic incidents to prevent such incidents in future. For this purpose I have been in regular contacts with the government and the opposition,” Mr Hussain said.
Mr Javed Hashmi thanked Mr. Hussain for expressing these views. He said he was grateful that he remembered him. He added that I gave statement in favour of you when you were arrested.
“People severely criticized me when I gave the statement. However, I said that I would support Mr Hussain in his difficult time. I would have done more if it were possible for me. I come from the middle-class family. Our thinking is same. We can solve most of our problems,” Mr Hashmi said.
Mr Javed Hashmi praised Mr. Hussain’s effort get the country out the crisis.
