‘Should I leave MQM?’ Altaf seeks suggestion on party website


KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has asked his followers on party’s official website, www.mqm.org, whether he should step down as the party leader or not.


Altaf asked this question to the ‘Haq Parast awam’: “To save the party and the people, should I step down from the movement?”

Along with the question, the options of Yes (haan), Never (har giz nahin), and Don’t Know (maloom nahin) have been given.

Altaf claimed that after his address at the party’s convention in the US, the army and the government decided that channels would not air his speeches.

“They have also threatened the MQM and if Altaf Hussain resigns from party leadership, then they would stop the operation against the Mohajirs,” Altaf said.
