MQM chief made new anti-Pakistan speech after his apology, says Kamal
Pak Sarzameen Chief Mustafa Kamal during ARY’s programme ‘Off The Record’ said, Altaf Hussain’s new speech was delivered after he tendered a 12-hour late apology for an earlier provocative speech.
According to Kamal, the MQM leader went one-step ahead against Pakistan and its armed forces in his latest speech after inciting violence in Karachi during which one person was killed on Monday when he addressed his supporters.
The MQM chief in the audio message reportedly sought help from the United States, Israel and Iran and told Hindus that Pakistan’s formation was a mistake.
An outgoing MQM leader Erum Azeem who recently left the party membership after violence flared on the streets of Karachi on the call of MQM chief said Altaf Hussain once again raised his voice only to break Pakistan.
She alleged Wasay Jalil, a member of MQM’s coordination committee based in London, harassed her on the phone while some of the MQM dignitaries from Houston also threatened her after she parted ways from the party.
Azeem said, Hussain during his speech was badly upset when MQM leader Babar Ghauri raised pro-Pakistan slogans over which Ghauri had to later say sorry.
Senior MQM leader and party’s deputy convener Amir Khan announced to distance himself from Hussain’s latest and controversial speech in the US.
However, he claimed the MQM chief new speech was not new and that it was important to examine whether he made those statements before tendering his apology on the Karachi violence or after.
Meanwhile, Scotland Yard started investigating whether the Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief incited violence in Karachi when he addressed party workers and supporters from his north-London base on Monday.
Violence erupted in Karachi after MQM’s Altaf Hussain, who has been living in Edgware for over 20 years, addressed supporters in the city via a telephone call.
An MQM spokesman had claimed that the violence flared only after the party’s supporters were fired on by police where one person was killed.
