CALL TO TAKE ACTION ON THREATS FROM MUTTAHIDA QUAMI MOVEMENT (MQM) CHIEF ALTAF HUSSAIN
Voters in Pakistan have called on Pakistanis in the UK to take action against MQM Chief Ataf Hussain following remarks he made regarding the recent elections in Pakistan. He currently resides in the UK. The Pak Tribune reported that:-
In a reply to allegations pertaining to poll rigging being leveled against MQM in Karachi and Hyderabad, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain said if the ‘establishment’ doesn’t like the mandate of his party, it should go ahead and detach it from the rest of the country.
Pak Tribune also reported that :-
The MQM Chief dared anyone who is opposing his party to come up with evidence and warned that if opposition was not stopped, he would not take long to let his associates free to act on their own. “How can I control them and for how long,” he added.
Waziristan Online has supported candidates through the election process and had hoped for free and fair elections. However angry protestors are now out on the streets across Pakistan to highlight many complaints of vote rigging and other irregularities. They stated that the public and Rangers had turned on MQM workers after they had allegedly been caught rigging at DHA College for Women, PH8, Karachi. The organization responded to Altaf Hussain’s words with the following appeal to British Pakistanis alleging intimidation and threats:-
MASS APPEAL TO THE PAKISTANIS IN UK:
People in Pakistan, Karachi are fighting for their rights by facing directly threats, they have stood up against the terrorist MQM Mafia.
Altaf Hussain gave direct threats on TV channels that MQM will kill the peaceful protesters if they do not leave the protest. He also talked about separating Karachi from Pakistan.
Dear People in UK – now it is your responsibility to start a legal process against this criminal Altaf Hussain. Call your local police office and file a report against him for openly threatening Pakistani citizens. Write letters, emails and make phone calls to your local MPs in UK to register your protest and expose the criminal Altaf Hussain.
MQM has done massive rigging in Karachi elections by using their terror tactics but the people of Karachi have rejected MQM and Altaf Hussain. Their time is ending soon the people of Karachi will decide their future and not some terrorist living in UK.
