MQM workers ‘honey bees’, not flies: Pervaiz Rashid


LAHORE: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervaiz Rashid has on Saturday said that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) workers are not flies, they are ‘honey bees’. He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was only quoting someone else.


Talking to media after presiding over a meeting of the Iqbal Academy’s Board of Governors, Pervaiz Rashid said that he Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan should focus on Khyber Pakhtunkhawa (KP) instead of criticizing others.

“I think Imran Khan should become the Chief Minister of KP because the people of KP had voted for him and it is his duty to solve their problems”, he added.

Federal Minister said that the Prime Minister has been taking everyone along. “PM didn’t say anything that someone would object to. One thing is clear, MQM workers have become fond of honey”, he said.

Talking about the threatening statements given by Indian government officials and Pakistan’s response, Rashid said that the Modi government has shamed India across the globe. “Pakistan is not a kind of country that would succumb to mere threats”, he cleared.

He said that it was Pakistan’s right to raise its voice on international forums regarding the threatening statements made by the Indian leadership.
