Altaf Hussain rejects Rao Anwar’s press briefing, says such allegations call for martial law
KARACHI (92 News) – Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday rejected the claims made by former Malir Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) Rao Anwar asking the Sindh Government to register a case against him.
Addressing the party workers through a telephone call on Thursday, Altaf Hussain said that MQM had to face difficulties and discrimination, but despite of all the hurdles it stood for the betterment of Pakistan.
Altaf said: “We are called RAW agents every other day. Those who surrendered are called patriots, while the founders of Pakistan are dubbed traitors.”
Pointing towards Rao Anwar, Alftaf said that the officer who was himself involved in land-grabbing was making allegations against MQM. Altaf Hussain complained that every ethnic group has formed a national level organization. “But why only the MQM is being treated discriminately?”
Altaf said: “We are called RAW agents every other day. Those who surrendered are called patriots, while the founders of Pakistan are dubbed traitors.” Also, he claimed that the MQM cannot work without him.
The MQM chief said that the Sindh government had assured him that it had no role in Rao Anwar’s allegations.
