It is a pity that an uneducated street boy, com-politician like Altaf Husain dared to speak about Quaid-i-Azam for no reason and rhyme. Maybe in his own distorted way he thinks of himself as a Quaid, a leader? If so he has to know the difference between someone who has earned the right to be called a Quaid and someone who is self proclaimed. It is sheer audacity to compare himself and his self imposed exile with Jinnah holding a British passport, in an era when we were a colony of the British Raj. There must be some educated people in MQM? He should have spoken to someone before setting out to make such a dim-witted speech were he burnt all his boats? Altaf Husain has committed political Hara Kiri.
