KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has said that enemies of the MQM; Dr Imran Farooq killed and now they are after him.
In a telephone address to a meeting in London of condolence to the party headquarters Friday, he said, Now the enemies of the movement is my life but I ll tell them I not afraid of anyone, whether it is a superpower like the United States and its NATO allies or agents of Pakistan .. . I fear that the Almighty Allah and will never bend the conspirators, even if they get my British citizenship revoked.
Mr Hussain condemned the sentencing of Dr Aafia Siddiqui by a US court and said that had the MQM been in power it would have severed all diplomatic ties with the US, its allies and Nato.
“Why was Dr Aafia awarded such a sentence when she did not kill anyone,” he asked. He appealed to US President Barack Obama to set aside the sentence and release her.
He urged people to distinguish between friends and foes and understand the conspiracies being hatched against the country. He said he had complete faith in the justice of the Almighty Allah and one day the killers of Dr Farooq would be unmasked before the world.
He said that some elements were “distorting facts to save the killers of Dr Farooq” and making misleading stories against the MQM. He said that despite all odds, the party would continue its struggle.
