MQM Praised Raheel Sharif, Criticism taken Wrongly - Rabita Committee
KARACHI: Muttahida Quami Movement has lauded Pakistan Army praising leadership Chief General Raheel Sharif was the reply to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) criticism over Altaf Hussain's slanderous speech on Thursday against the Armed Forces.
In a statement issued on Friday, the Rabita Committee said the party chief has not only approved of General Raheel’s actions but also applauded his efforts against terrorism in the country.
The committee urged the COAS to provide justice to the MQM, urging him to take action against loan defaulters and plunderers as well, along with the continuing Operation Zarb-e-Azb.
Earlier in the day, DG ISPR Major General Asim Bajwa termed Hussain’s remarks uncalled for and irresponsible.
In a tweet he called MQM chief’s speech “disgusting,” saying that reference to the army or its leadership while reacting to arrest of criminals with suspected links to political parties will not be tolerated.
Altaf, while addressing his supporters via a telephonic address at Nine-Zero on late Thursday, referred to the 1971 surrender of the armed forces, using it to ask why the party was labelled as traitors when some of its members sought refuge in India after fleeing prosecution in the aftermath of the 1992 operation against them.
His speech came after SSP Malir Rao Anwar held a press conference on Thursday where he alleged that the MQM had ties with Indian spy agency Raw and presented two suspects who claimed they had ties with the MQM and had received weapons training in India.
