The Muttihida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has finally entered in Punjab by holding a public meeting at football ground near Qaddafi Stadium on Sunday. It was MQMs long standing desire to penetrate Punjabs political arena as its two earlier efforts first in mid 1990s and second in 2007 could not succeed. Sundays rally was earlier scheduled to be held at Minar-e-Pakistan for which the Punjab Government did not give permission and shifted it to Main Ferozepur Road from where it was finally held inside the football ground. MQM put up a decent show which may not be up to top leaderships expectations. The most encouraging aspect of the Sundays rally is the manner in which the provincial government behaved and as a result there was no untoward incident anywhere. In fact, MQM leadership present in Lahore has thanked Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for making appropriate security arrangements. MQM leader, Altaf Hussain in his speech expressed his concern on behalf of the Punjabis saying that people of the province want to end the dynastic politics while at the same time claiming that Muttihida has panacea for countrys ills. The leadership of MQM must keep in mind that this is just about the beginning and there is a long way to go before traditional style of politics could be changed in Punjab. True that the mainstream political parties including the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) and Pakistan Peoples Party could not provide good governance both at the federal and provincial levels. But does that mean that the stage is set for MQM to come and take over the entire theatre. First of all MQM will have to wash its image of being a terrorist organisation that believes in ethnicity and that its activists have been accused of being 'Bhatta Mafia gangs. MQM would have to clear the mess of Jinnah Pur Plan, an attempt being viewed among average Punjabis as a move to dismember Pakistan. However, it is MQMs right to carry out political activities as any other party and no one should try to deprive it of such an opportunity.
