Will support army action against Taliban

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain has termed terrorists as inhuman and said his party would support an army action against the Taliban.

“If we want Quaid-e-Azam’s Pakistan, we will have to rise up against the Taliban,” Hussain said while addressing the general workers meeting at the Jinnah Ground via telephone from London.

Altaf Hussain strongly condemned the attack on Malala and two other students by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan. He said Malala Yousafzai is the daughter of the nation and the attack on her life was an attack on education.

Altaf eulogized Malala and said that raising voice for education in Taliban strongholds is a “courageous act.”

Altaf Hussain prayed for early recovery of Malala Yousafzai and two other girls, Kainat and Shazia who also sustained injuries in the attack in Swat.

The MQM Chief added that nations change their fate by themselves and we have to move forward despite all the challenges.

Altaf asked why political and religious parties have kept mum on the attack on Malala Yousafzai.

On the issue of drone attacks, the MQM chief said his party would always oppose these.
