KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has appealed for unity, while criticising political parties for being involved in mudslinging while Pakistan was encircled by threats.

In a speech at the party’s International Secretariat in London, Hussain said that the country’s major political parties should first work on saving the country from the danger it is in and then engaging in politics.

“If there is no Pakistan, then there is nothing else, no politics, estates or someone’s kingdom,” Hussain said.

  1. Altaf Bhai, many a times previously also it has been said that your views are excellent and viable. You seem to be bold and courageous enough to say what you feel. However the biggest problem with you is inconsistency in your stand point. In the past also many a times you took very good stand but then bowed to the pressure of extremists or to other political pundits. All citizens of Pakistan have mind and they evaluate their leaders critically. My advice to you would be to create consistency in your stand point. On one side you are firing salvos on all political parties to save Pakistan while same time engaging with PP for Local Government matters where MQM sees its political advantage. So what is this. To an ordinary Pakistani it looks like double standard.
