ANP's Bushra wants psychiatrists' panel for examining Altaf
12 September, 2011
ISLAMABAD: ANP Central Vice President Bushra Gohar has advised that a commission comprising of reputable psychiatrists should be constituted to examine MQM leader Altaf Hussain and his statements as he is no more a normal person.
"This is something very serious I am advising and it is evident that he is no more normal person," the Awami National Party senior leader and also MNA insisted in her interview with Online on Sunday.
"His examinations by good psychiatrists would surely resolve many problems and would save the time of the nation to think over what the MQM chief says", she said.
She rejected the notion of forming any judicial commission or any other inquiry in this connection before psychiatrists' examination of Altaf Hussain, as a sheer wastage of time.
She said that in his Friday video press conference, the MQM leader had threatened the supreme court of Pakistan by saying that he would let loose his workers if the Apex Court decided something against him; besides threatening, political parties and masses of Pakistan.
She further said that in all his video conference he committed strange actions and his body language was also not normal. "He was reciting Quran at one time and in the same breath he started singing Indian melodies with dancing gestures on his chair which show he is definitely not a normal person. Bushra Gohar said that his arguments were also not logical and coherent, as all the people and media observed was abnormal.
Nevertheless, he (Altaf) had clearly threatened institutions of Pakistan and issued provocative statements, causing uneasiness and tensions among those who are unaware of his current mental status.
"He is no more Pakistani and is a citizen of Great Britain, therefore Pakistani foreign office must raise the issue immediately with the UK government and I would also stress this in the parliament that Pakistan should take serious note of a foreigner's provocations," in order to assist government pacify its citizens, who hopefully may think differently after report of the proposed psychiatrists report.
Altaf Hussain said that he wanted to sacrifice his life for Pakistan and wanted to return to the country but was afraid over threats to his life she said, adding that this was totally against his earlier claims of sacrificing his life for the country. Commenting on the politics of Muttihida Qaumi Movement (MQM), she blamed that the party was adopting fascist approach, as they had always tended to suppress free media and freedom of expression in Pakistan.
"Journalist Nusrat Javid is the recent victim and besides all are also aware of cases of CNBC and Dawn Reporter", she cited, adding that she was very much concerned over further victimization of media .
