There is an old proverb, "people who live in glass houses, should not throw stones at others". MQM has a very poor track record when it comes to human rights, use of violence, ethnic hatred and abuse of women. Can this party explain why it chose to remain silent when Dr Shazia Khalid was raped in Balochistan while they were in power under Musharraf junta? It was again silent when Musharraf, while answering a question asked by a Pakistani lady named Ayesha Hassan about Muktaran Mai rape incident, stated that many Pakistani women plan their rape to get visas for Canada, USA and Europe. It was also their MNA which uttered unacceptable and uncivilised remarks about our daughters and sisters living in Punjab. RASHID ORAKZAI, Quetta, October 14.
