Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has condemned acts of violence on the day of “Love Prophet Day” and called on people to come forward to make the country liberal secular.
Criticizing the acts of violence and arson during the anti-film protests he said it was no way to express our love for the Holy Prophet. “What kind of Ishq-e-Rasool it was,” he said referring to the killings and plundering during the protests.
Altaf said handful of ignorant extremists had taken the whole nation a hostage and we would have to be rescuse it from their shakles.
He also lashed out at the feudal lords saying they were exploiting the masses and we must get rid of them.
He urged the masses to break their silence and came along with him to make Pakistan liberal secular and progressive.
Altaf Hussain said that the nation should not be forgetful of its future as country was passing through critical times. “We have to save the country from threats,” he said.
“We are playing in the hands of enemy by pushing the country towards destruction without keeping in view the consequences of destructive activities, Altaf Hussain said.
He said how the followers of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), who gave message of mercy for the entire world, could loot and plunder their fellow beings.
Lamenting bloodshed and mayhem in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar and Kashmir on last Friday, he said that what kind of Ishq e Rasool it was when dozens of innocent people were killed and hundreds of them were injured.
“The miscreants under the guise of religious rally mercilessly and unscrupulously looted public and private property for their vested interests,” said the MQM chief.
Pakistan is confronted with grave internal and external enemies while different sections of our society are clashing with one another, he said.
