He was of the view that Baloch, Sindhis, Punjabis and others made organizations for their political rights, none was crushed except MQM.

“But when we started our struggle, we were called agents of RAW (Indian intelligence agency) and a military operation was initiated against us”, said Hussain.

Lashing out at Rao Anwar

Hussain lashed out at SSP Rao Anwar who recently demanded a ban on MQM and called the police officer a ‘Bhangi’ (sweeper).

He maintained that the police officer is himself involved in criminal activities and it would be a disgrace for him to reply to his allegations.

MQM supremo claimed that his party is investigating the hidden link behind Anwar’s press conference adding that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders have assured him that their party leadership has nothing to do with the SSP’s diatribe against MQM.

Hussain maintained that a mere transfer of  the cop will not work as the matter should be inquired judicially.

About some MQM worker’s alleged escape to India during the 1992 operation, Hussain said that when the then the LEAs did not let them live within their country, harassed their families, arrested their loved ones, so they were not left with any option but to flee to any country accepting them.
