In the last elections, the nation voted for political unity and communal harmony, not for any division or communality. On August 19, 2008, the MQM Quaid Altaf Hussain announced his support for Asif Zardari. He said in his televised interview "Asif Zardari should be President of Pakistan". Pakistan is facing serious threats like terrorism, Talibanisation and the economic recession. We need political stability and harmony in the country. An understanding between PPP and MQM is necessary for ensuring harmony in Sindh and Pakistan. Altaf Hussain and Asif Zardari are working together for the sake of political stability of the country. In the last six months, Altaf Hussain has offered unconditional support to the new PPP government on a number of issues. As expatriates who live in USA, we are always anxious about the developments in Pakistan. We are really very happy on this decision by MQM chief, Altaf Hussain. In my opinion, every patriotic Pakistani should welcome his support for Asif Zardari. But the million-dollar question is how Mr. Nawaz Sharif, Imran Khan and Qazi Hussain will react to this support. I urge them to please stop criticizing others unnecessarily. It is time for them to review their own acts. -DAWAR NAQVI, Torrance, USA, via e-mail, August 20.
