DOES MQM WANT?
Ideologically speaking, MQM is not a
proponent of Socialism, Communism or unbridled Capitalism. It
only believes in Realism and Practicalism. By adopting this
philosophy it desires to establish an economic system based on
free market economy in accordance with the spirit of democracy.
MQM seeks drastic reforms in all sectors including agriculture,
industry, commerce, education, health, defence, finance and
judiciary. These are considered essential for the solidarity,
security, progress and prosperity of the country as well as for
the welfare of the common man. MQM wants to see total elimination
of corruption, bribery, injustices, tyranny, exploitation,
illiteracy, unemployment, poverty, drug trafficking and other
such social evils. It aims to introduce a comprehensive program
to make Pakistan prosperous and stable, and create a just society
in which opportunity to progress and prosper is available to all,
While the MQM primarily espouses the
cause of the 98 percent poor and middle classes, it does also
recognise the two- percent elite class as useful citizens of the
country. It has no intention to take away their legally acquired
wealth. Its objective is to evolve on the principle of Realism
and Practicalism a just system in which all classes of the
country should feel themselves fully secured. Without taking any
thing away from the men of status, the poor and middle class
people should have the opportunity to come out of the quagmire of
poverty through merit and hard work. Additionally, the system
should be free from exploitation, hatred and injustices.
Furthermore, adherence to any particular cast, creed, language,
ethnicity, sex, sect and religion, should in no way prejudice any
ones fundamental or human rights.
