Expatiated MQM - By: Col.Riaz Jafri (Retd)

All MQM detainees as seen on the tv channels are declaring themselves thorough bred Pakistanis and raising pro Pakistan Zindabad slogans on their way to and from courts. Only a day or two ago they were assuring Altaf of their unflinching loyalty by hollering in unison Pakistan Murda Bad and raiding media houses on his behest to destroy them. How come so soon and sudden a change of heart? To me it is all a put up and farce and being charaded on the advice of their lawyers to produce it later as an evidence in the courts in their defence for being pro Pakistanis. If they are really so sincere to Pakistan then they must prove their true loyalty by denouncing the traitor AH unequivocally and raising slogans of Altaf Hussain Murda Bad which should be telecast by all tv channels repeatedly for at least 3 days.

Secondly, MQM's 190 illegal offices in Karachi and another 80 in Hyderabad have been sealed by Law Enforcement Agencies. For how long have these offices been there? Since decades. Didnít the Sindh Governments - previous and present Ė know of it? Where were the City Mayors to have allowed MQM to occupy illegally and forcefully plots and parks for their offices allegedly used for the collection of Bhatta, Qurbani Skins apart from other terrorist activities, including target killings?! And again, didnít some of the MQM bigwigs have huge Shadi Halls illegally and forcefully constructed upon large vacant plots in some of the posh areas of Karachi and which were demolished only some time back? How was it all allowed to happen ?! Would such fascists deserve to be called honest politicians and leaders of a peaceful political party? If its leaders could do such unlawful and illegal acts then what havoc its armed workers would! not have wreaked upon the innocent masses in their respective Sectors and precincts?! And, now our political parties, just to serve their own interests, have the cheek to talk of giving these very dishonest criminals another chance and space to negotiate with?! Strange -- indeed strange, to say the least.
