The latest TV interview of Altaf Hussain saying that the army should seize power if the government and they are not on the same page regarding the Taliban, is uncalled for and condemnable! MQM through rallies has shown solidarity with the army which is commendable but they should not try to derail democracy, which of course is much better than dictatorship. Altaf Hussain should clarify and withdraw his statement in the larger interest of the country. Needless to point out that democracy has been achieved and restored after a lot of sacrifices.
