KARACHI - Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to show courage and support Pakistan Army for elimination of terrorists from the country.

He assured MQM’s full support in operation against the terrorists.

He was addressing the workers and supporters of his party on the occasion of 36th founding day of All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organisation (APMSO) at Jinnah Ground, Azizabad here on Wednesday.

He said the MQM never supported talks with the militants who were martyring civilians and soldiers of the country. The parties favouring negotiations with the terrorists should review their decision, he added. He said the terrorists were targeting the security forces and recently the Jinnah International Airport was attacked. Expressing condolences with the families of Karachi airport attacks’ victims, he said our mosques, imambargahs and government institutions installations were not safe.

Expressing gratitude to workers and supporters on organising peaceful sit-ins demonstration across the country over his arrest in London, he said once again propaganda against MQM had been initiated.

“Neither the US nor UK or any other international force could force me to bow my head,” he asserted. He warned that in case any mischief was done on the arrival of Pakistan Awami Tehreek leader Tahirul Qadri to Pakistan, each worker of MQM would take part in the protest. Talking to the students, he asked them to avoid cheating and concentrate on their studies. They should quit smoking and use of tobacco. Altaf congratulated all the wings including sectors and units of Karachi and other parts of Sindh, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgat-Baltistan, tribal areas and Azad Kashmir on the foundation day of APMSO.
