KARACHI: The founder leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain asked the government, military and bureaucracy to decide General Pervez Musharraf’s case on merit rather than on ‘personal liking and disliking’. It would be good for the national interest, he added.
Hussain expressed these views addressing people who had come to the farewell dinner in honour of Wajid Shamshul Hasan at the MQM’s International Secretariat London. MQM’s Deputy conveners Nadeem Nusrat, Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, members of Rabita Committees, senators, members of national and provincial assemblies and office bearers of different wings and departments were present.
At a time when Pakistan is facing internal and external challenges we should not try to create discord and confusion otherwise it will endanger our security and survival. “We should know Pakistan is facing isolation on the diplomatic front. Our friends are not sincere with us”, Hussain said.
I can only give my sincere opinion and advice. It is up to the rulers whether they heed to my advice or not. It is not an order, he added.
Hussain praising Wajid’s services said we needed an experienced and talented high commissioner like him to deal with the challenges and crisis faced by our country. We respect the decision of the government.
Hussain said our people should maintain the sanctity of the public votes. He urged them to solve the problems being faced by the people in their respective constituencies and struggle to provide more facilities and relief to people. He said they should establish educational institutions and libraries and try to improve the standard of education.
