Founder and Leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Altaf Hussain, has asked Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) and Pakistan Tahrik-e-Insaf (PTI) to stage protest demonstration outside Prime Minister House to mount pressure on Nawaz Sharif to order to shoot down the drones.

He was addressing a launching ceremony of 'The Philosophy of Love', written by him, at a hotel here on Saturday. People from different walks of life, including politicians, diplomats, intellectuals, journalists and others attended the ceremony.

Former chief Minister Sindh, Arbab Ghulam Rahim, Elahi Bux Soomro, Sindh Education Minister Nisar Khoro were also present on the occasion. He said that staging a protest against Nato supplies and blocking the routes has proved to be completely baseless. "Protesting on Nato supply routes is intended only to harass the poor truck drivers, he said. Instead of protesting against Nato supplies, Altaf Hussain said, PTI and JI should register a protest with Security Council of United Nations over drone strikes in Pakistan.

Altaf Hussain said that Nato supplies through Pakistani routes could not be stopped. "Pakistan cannot block the Nato supplies because the US is supplying money to the Pakistan government and people will starve if Nato supplies are blocked." He said that the chief of JI, Syed Munawar Hassan should have been prosecuted under Article 6 of the Constitution of Pakistan for declaring slain TTP leader Shaheed. Hussain said that the MQM is the only party which has openly criticised the Tahreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) more than any other progressive parties.

He said that the discrimination of caste, colour or creed should be eliminated in order to make Pakistan prosper and stable "We have already lost half of Pakistan because of our discriminative attitude and social injustices," Altaf Hussain said. He maintained that he wants to spread love among masses which is the only solution to steer the country out of persisting civil chaos. "Love can erase linguistic, sectarian and religious differences among the people of Pakistan," he said.

Commenting on the book, Ajmal Dehlvi, who chaired the ceremony, said that Altaf Hussain is popular leader and great teacher. He said that Altaf Hussain has always taught the lesson of love to his workers. "People can enhance their knowledge by reading the book 'The Philosophy of Love'," he said. Noted journalist Mahmood Shaam said that Altaf Hussain always preached love and affection to his workers. He said that Altaf Hussain has discussed sensitive issues like homosexuality and others with boldness and courage.

MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar said that political wisdom and vision of Altaf Hussain were being admired by the whole world. He said that people of Pakistan need unity in their ranks and files. He said that Altaf Hussain's book 'The Philosophy of Love' is prescription for eradicating all problems facing Pakistan now-a-days. Dr Pirzada Qasim said the MQM chief always believed in meaningful practice. He said Altaf Hussain arranges thought provoking sittings for his workers. Altaf Hussain has taught art of expression to his workers, Dr Pirzada Qasim said.

Intellectual Shamim Hanfi said that people have misinterpreted the word secular. Pakistan was created by secular leader Mohammad Ali Jinnah, he said Altaf Hussain always preached secularism and did politics on principles, he said. Journalist Aga Masood said that Altaf Hussain preached love and affection through his book. President Arts Council Ahmad Shah and others also spoke on the occasion.
