Me and my party are not against armed forces: Altaf Hussain
07 August, 2015
KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said on Wednesday he and his party were not against armed forces and law-enforcement agencies and called their personnel “our sons and brothers”.
But he reiterated that army, Rangers or police of any country should ‘‘avoid committing excesses against their citizens”.
Addressing the families of slain, imprisoned and missing party workers, he alleged that due process of law was not being followed when it came to charges against MQM workers.
It was the only grievance of his party and he had been raising his voice only for that `injustice’, he added.
The Muttahida leader “appealed” to Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif to play his role for providing justice to families of MQM’s slain workers and recovery of those missing for several months.
