Military establishment, top brasses, senior officials responsible for Murree tragedy: Altaf Hussain

  

LONDON. 8, January 2022:

 Mr. Altaf Hussain, the historian, academician, philanthropist, tribune, politician, writer, poet, revolutionist, statesman, scholar and founder and leader of MQM, has said that the responsibility for the mass killings in the Murree tragedy lies with the army generals and senior officers. None except the corrupt and ghoulish military establishment has brought devastation in every section of life. The top military brass is involved in minting money and ransacking the taxpayer’s money from both hands. The Murree Tragedy could be prevented but these corrupt military generals of the ghoulish Pakistani army kept them drowned in expanding their authoritative bullies while half-covered Murree Cantonment was slipping into nightmare and the civilians were left on the cruelty in the smothering chilling weather.

Talking to MQM workers on Saturday night, he expressed his heartfelt condolences over the deaths in the Murree tragedy and said that it was a great tragedy which could be prevented. The sheer regrets can't reverse the colossal loss for which the corrupt military generals and administration was solely responsible.

Hussain said the details of the Murree tragedy were "extremely tragic and painful. People were trapped in vehicles for hours due to the heavy snowfall. They had been calling the emergency numbers of the government and administration and senior officials but the government, administration and army didn't come to rescue as a result of which many innocent people died and a great human tragedy took place in the country.

Ironically, on military's bullying dictation, the mainstream media of Pakistan is telling the stereotyped tale that the army has arrived and is carrying out huge relief and rescue works. Hah! This is another tragedy side by side. For more than 20 hours, everyone was calling for help. Why the army generals, senior officers and personnel, their helicopters, heavy vehicles and machinery didn't help the citizens trapped in the snow?  Why didn't the army move yesterday, in spite of the army cantonment located at a walking distance?

Hussain said that whenever there is a natural calamity or a tragedy all over the world, the army there comes to the rescue of its citizens instantly but not in Pakistan. Why the army did not move yesterday to save the lives of the citizens trapped in snow in Murree? The army carries 90 percent of the country's budget in the name of defence. It was their responsibility to save the civilians. Where were the national and provincial disaster management authorities?  Where was the government and administration?

He said that as a result of this criminal negligence, the responsibility for the mass killings in the Murree tragedy lies with the army generals and senior officers who did not save the civilians in spite of all resources and authority. How can such an army be considered sacred? he questioned.

He said that we believe in humanity and we are deeply saddened by this tragedy.

He also offered prayers for the victims of the Murree tragedy.
