Altaf Hussain’s (MQM) drone strike on January 10. 2013 (today at 05:00 PM)
Quaid-e-Azam had UK passport: Altaf Hussain drone attack
Says as Governor General Quaid-e-Azam took oath to remain loyal to British king and successors.
London UK (Breaking News / Thursday, January 10, 2013) – Finally MQM chief has launched his promised drone attacks on founder of Pakistan Qauid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and on Pakistan itself from London.
In his telephonic address to MQM workers in Karachi, Altaf Hussain said 99 percent of Pakistanis did not know the real historical facts.
“I do not want to keep the nation in dark, he said; adding historical facts have been concealed from people in the past.
Defending his British nationality, he claimed that Quaid-e-Azam too had a British passport.
He also showed the image of Quaid-e-Azam oath that he took as first Governor General of Pakistan in which he pledged to remain faithful to the King of England.
First three governor generals of Pakistan took the same oath, adding it was a legal necessity.
Under the pretext of this argument, he defended his dual nationality and proved that one can be faithful to ones country despite having nationality of another country.
Pakistan became a democratic republic in 1956 before which it was under the British Empire, he said.
“It is wrong that Pakistan got independent status 1947,” he said.
He said it was an irony that those who fought for independence were being labeled as traitors, and those who opposed Pakistan were now pretending to be its guardians.
Defending his stay in London, he said he had been constantly in touch with his workers for the last 22 years. “
“I was forced by circumstances to live away from country, it was not my choice,” he advocated.
He said PML-N and PPP leaders had also lived in foreign countries for long periods of time.
“PML-N chief also Nawaz Sharif stayed in Saudi Arabia for eight years when his government was toppled by then dictator Musharraf,” he said.
Rejecting all objections being raised against the long march announced by Tahirul Qadri, Altaf said MQM would participate in it at every cost.
He claimed that the MQM is the only party that believes in democracy; adding those who pretend to be champions of democracy in the TV talk shows actually have nothing to do with the A,B,C of democracy.
MQM chief said Urdu speaking people should not be pushed to wall. “
“MQM does not wand a separate province for Urdu speaking Pakistanis but if they are ignored, they would be bound to demand division of Sindh,” he said.
