Nawaz should support army in eliminating terrorists, says Altaf

KARACHI: Muttahid Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to support the armed forces in eliminating terrorists.
Altaf had called the Rabta Committee to congratulate the All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organisation (APMSO) on the 36th anniversary of its founding.
While extending his condolences to the families of victims of the Karachi airport attack, Altaf said he is not in favour of peace talks with those responsible for the martyrdom of innocent people and army men. He urged parties in favour of peace talks to reconsider their stance.
Altaf said propaganda against his party had started once again. He protested against what he claims are extra-judicial executions and enforced disappearances of his party workers and claimed he was being falsely accused of involvement in various cases.
Referring to Tahir-ul-Qadri’s announcement of returning to Pakistan, the party chief said that if the government creates any hindrances in his protests, MQM workers will stage a protest in Qadri’s support.
