MQM - BY: Col. Riaz Jafri (Retd)

Altaf Hussain’s nauseating utterances about Pakistan and his unashamedly appeals to RAW for help should leave no doubt in anyone’s mind about him and his anti Pakistan stance. It was high time that the government took a serious note of it and the traitor meted out the justice he deserves. Pak Govt. must ask the British Govt. to repatriate him to face trial for treason. He openly invited his followers not only to raise anti Pakistan slogans but also to take over the Sindh Secretariat and Provincial Assembly buildings apart from ransacking a few media houses as well. He used extremely derogatory language about the armed forces of Pakistan also.

The local MQM leadership and their followers, unless they totally divest themselves from him and his party, must also be thoroughly investigated and scrutinized and those found with anti Pakistan feelings and leanings must also be tried under article-6 of the constitution.

Once the facts are established and the trial(s) commence then the proceedings must reach their logical conclusion. No midway political efforts or pressures for bringing them into the main stream pro-Pakistan politics. Remember Agartala ?! Remember Sh. Mujib ur Rehman being brought to the round table conference by Asghar Khan?! What was the end result? Pakistan cut into two. We must learn from our own history and not let it happen again. The seeds of Jinnah Pur were sown long back and must not be allowed to sprout now. Nip the evil in the bud, so that it serves as a severe deterrent to anyone else also having similar designs elsewhere.
