RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army spokesman termed Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain’s speech earlier today as “uncalled for and disgusting” and signaled legal proceeding against him, NewsOne reported on Friday.

In his tweets, Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) General Asim Bajwa reacted against MQM chief’s speech, saying the statements against Pakistan Army are unbearable and the court will be approached in this connection.

Bajwa tweeted, “Irresponsible remarks and using media to incite the people of Pakistan to rise against the state- the matter will be pursued legally.”

He was of the opinion, “Such reference to Army or its leadership as reaction to arrest of criminals, who may have links with any political party will not be tolerated.”
