FAISALABAD/SARGODHA/GUJRANWALA/multan-Different political, religious, industrial and other organisations demanded that the government should ban Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) which as they said has become a threat to the sovereignty, integrity and solidarity of Pakistan.
They said that MQM chief Altaf Hussain repeatedly used obnoxious and blasphemous language against the country and Pakistani forces. They said that no patriotic Pakistani will tolerate it.
Led by Anjuman Tajran city president Shahid Razzaq, the protesters staged a protest demonstration at Ghanta Ghar raising slogans against MQM and Altaf Hussain.
They said that anti-state elements were behind MQM and Altaf. Another group of traders led by Asif Bhala along with dozens of traders took out a rally against Altaf. They chanted slogans against MQM and in favour of the country such as Pakistan Zindabad.
All Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association (APTPMA) passed a resolution against Altaf and MQM terming it an anti-Pakistan party. APTPMA also passed resolution demanding that Gwadar and CPEC project should be completed at any cost.
Likewise, Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI) held a meeting. FCCI members said that Pakistan was created due to unprecedented sacrifices of the Muslims of Subcontinent. M Nawaz, the president of FCCI, said Quaid-i-Azam led the struggle of independence and convinced colonial rulers that Muslims want a separate homeland and are not ready to accept the hegemony of Hindus. Unluckily, India planted its agents in the form of Altaf Hussain and its intelligence agency RAW played an instrumental role in politically hijacking the city of Quaid through their fascist activities, he said.
Moreover, different political and laborer leaders also criticised Altaf Hussain and attacks on media houses. Main Abdul Qayyum, chairman of Labour Qaumi Movement, said that Karachi is the economic lifeline of Pakistan. He further said that recent insurgency in Held Kashmir forced India to openly condemn Pakistan through its agent that was sitting in England and was issuing directive to its followers to attack the media houses.
Political leaders Farrukh Habib of PTI, KH Islam, Sher Ali of PML.N and Rana Aftab Ahmad of PPP said that It was actually a reprisal by Indian primer Modi who was perturbed over the fluttering of Pakistani flag in Indian Held Kashmir. They said that Altaf Hussain used the obnoxious and blasphemous language which has exposed his ulterior motives. They added that earlier, MQM was forced to accept the presence of rangers in Karachi as the police and civil agencies were failed to maintain the law and order.
Immediately after the operation of Rangers, the MQM started hurling unfounded and politically motivated allegations that their workers are victimised.
Sunni Ittehad Council Chairman Sahabzada Hamid Raza said that actually these elements were involved in extortion and target killing of innocent people in Karachi. He condemned the recent statement of Altaf Hussain who had hatched a deep-rooted conspiracy of converting Karachi into an independent territory of Jinnahpur.
He said that RAW fully supported it and patriotic Pakistani were eliminated under a vicious plan to pave the way for the MQM to get political millage in Karachi in order to protect its terrorists and target killers.
He said that now, as the MQM has been exposed, the government must ban the organization which has become a threat to the sovereignty, integrity and solidarity of Pakistan.
