MQM accuses JI of harbouring, aiding terrorists

04 December, 2013

KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan should be banned at least for now, due to the party's links with Taliban, al Qaeda, and several other outlawed organisations that are working against the country.

The party should be tried as per Article 6 of the Constitution of Pakistan. Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain expressed the views during a telephonic address at Lal Qila Ground, Azizabad.

He said that even posh areas of Karachi, like Defence, Clifton, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, PECHS Society, North Nazimabad are not safe from Taliban, and their presence is increasing by the day. Hussain has said that Taliban's influence is rapidly growing, which is why incidents of sectarianism are increasing.

"Nobody is taking action against people who are instigating sectarianism and killing innocent citizens, while MQM workers are being harassed, detained and their houses raided illegally," he claimed.

Talking about the seed of hatred that has been sowed by the establishment, the MQM leader requested not to repeat the same mistakes, as it would not end well.

'I request Pakistan's rulers and establishment not to follow double standards like in the past. It will only create hatred among people," said Hussain.

Members of MQM's Tanzeemi Committees and office bearers and workers of different wings, elders and women attended the meeting in large numbers. Elected representatives from National Assembly and Provincial Assemblies, senators and former nazims attended the meeting too. The meeting was telecasted live to different cities in Pakistan, 22 cities in USA and 6 cities in Canada and UK.

In his address, the MQM chief also named Jamiat members, who were killed in drone attacks and had ties with Taliban and al Qaida.

Speaking on the occasion, Hussain reminded about JI's opposition to the creation of Pakistan, and that the founder of this party had pronounced Jinnah an infidel and the country, the land of impure.

He warned that discriminatory policies of the government, administration and establishment could create disunity and a crisis.

"Unfortunately, our security forces have made this party their B-team, and hence they carry out subversive activities in collusion with anti-state elements," said MQM chief Hussain.

The party chief often accused of treating Karachi as his 'turf', he asked why were the leaders supporting these terrorists? He further exclaimed, "Jamiat members have been killing army men in Afghanistan and Pakistan. They have attacked offices of the army, ISI and defence installations."
