Altaf bhai invites Taliban to join hands? – by D. Asghar

Related article: “Aafia United”: Imran Khan calls up Altaf Hussain

If Altaf bhai can only realize his immense potential as an entertainer, he would definitely give many Umer Sharifs, and other “Comedy Kings” of Bollywood, run for their money.

Is it me, or has someone noticed this as well, there is always some “Yaum e This” and “Yaum e That” celebrated by our dear MQM walas, where we have the “jamm e ghafeer” of people dying to listen to our own Altaf Bhai, directly from “Edgware Shareef”, giving his “fiery Khitabaats.” The strange thing is that no one knows what the “yaum” is all about. It just pops every now and then, when Bhai has the urge to take the microphone in his hands.

Of course, after failing to awaken the souls of “mohibbe-watan Jurnails”, Altaf Bhai has re routed his pleas to a different class, so dominant in our national sphere. This time he has requested, our “mohibbe-watan Taliban” to join hands and put the miseries of our nation to an eternal end. (http://www.dawn.com/2011/03/19/taliban-asked-to-join-hands-with-fellow-countrymen.html)

Now Altaf Bhai wants our so skilled Taliban to join hands and take this country out of distress. One minor detail, which perhaps the speech writer for Bhai, forgot to add was, that our nation is going through this mess, just a very tiny bit (I mean tiny as a 1/millionth) of a dust particle, just because of these real heroes made of steel.

But we all know that Bhai is famous for what we call in the slang of Karachi as a “shurli”, he just likes to shoot that “shurli”, whenever he chooses. So I was moved like many, with this new plea of Bhai, and I was wondering that the Grand Mujahid, Mulla Umer would be thinking along the same lines. He would be gathering his elders for a consultative meeting to chart out the strategy.

A couple of years, down the road, we may get to see some “election walection” and TTP can join hands with MQM and give a whole new meaning to the “Muttahidda” of the name of our so called, third largest political party of the country. I was even thinking ahead and imagining the hoarding or a bill board with Bhai on one end and Mulla Sahib on the other, “joining hands” and smiling. People lining up in Sohrab Goth, Lalu Khait, Teen Hatti and Baldia Township etc. to cast their votes for the two “real leaders.”

See all these other parties have got it all wrong. They just have to pay close attention to Bhai and his thought provoking lines. All the elite class just cannot tolerate, is the true champions of the “ghareeb awam.” Some may call me cheesy, but I think the perfect “intikhabi nishan”, for this alliance would be a “TT or AK-47.” 🙂

  • Drone attacks: Altaf demands blood money for victims

    The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday condemned in strongest terms the drone attack in Data Khel area of North Waziristan and asked the US to also pay blood money for those who lost their lives in the assault.
    Speaking at an event held in Karachi in connection with the party’s foundation day via telephone, Altaf expressed his sense of outrage at the way innocent people of South Waziristan were targeted.
    The US must pay blood money for the victims, he demanded.
    He said if the US so desires, “we are ready to pay diyat for the release of Dr Aafia Siddiqui”.
    He said the MQM would issue its official stance on the matter of Raymond Davis’ release today.
    He said the drone strikes are tantamount to attacking Pakistan’s independence and sovereignty which could adversely affect the ongoing war on terrorism.
    Published in The Express Tribune, March 18th, 2011.


  • Slamming as a violation of human rights the CIA drone strike in North Waziristan that targeted civilians a day after Davis left the country, Gen Kayani said: “The Pakistan Army has already lodged a protest in the strongest possible terms.” Of course, there have been countless rumours that the security and intelligence apparatus’ biggest crib with the drone programme is its reconnaissance dimension. They fear the Yanks are spying on them. So this is possibly just a reminder to Washington to play ball and not forget the debt it owes.
    This, however, appears a point lost on MQM leader Altaf Hussain. Jumping on the blood money bandwagon, he has now declared: “We are willing to pay diyat for the release of Dr Aafia Siddiqui” if the US agrees. How that would apply to an American court of law is not something he has clearly thought through. Ditto his demands that the US pay blood money for civilian lives lost through drone operations. He has evidently forgotten that his coalition partner okayed this form of remote-controlled warfare.


  • In what appears to be a major policy shift, Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has invited the Taliban to join hands with their fellow countrymen, instead of disassociating themselves from Pakistan.

    “I ask the Taliban leaders that this country came into being as a result of great sacrifices. Come and join Pakistanis…do not disassociate yourselves from Pakistan,” he said in a telephonic address at the 27th foundation day of the MQM on Friday.

    The day was celebrated across Pakistan and Mr Hussain’s address was simultaneously relayed to 34 places in the country. Carrying MQM’s tri-coloured flags and portraits of Mr Hussain, a large number of people attended the main rally at Karachi’s Jinnah Ground.

    Condemning the United States for drone attacks in tribal areas, Mr Hussain said that the US was violating Pakistan’s sovereignty and killing innocent people, adding that drone attacks were being carried out in clear violation of the UN charter.

    He assured the government and the armed forces that every Pakistani would support them if they took ‘meaningful steps’ with courage and bravery to stop drone strikes and part ways with the carrot-and-stick game of superpowers.

  • Altaf invited the Taliban to “join Pakistan” as the country came into existence after great sacrifices. He urged the people to extend support to the MQM as the party followed the last sermon of Holy Prophet (PBUH) as its manifesto and pledged equal rights to all the citizens in Pakistan. He claimed that the MQM would bring a revolution in the country if the people extended their support to the party.

    Altaf also supported the demand of Seraiki and Hazara provinces and demanded of the government to resolve the Balochistan issue through negotiation. A large number of people, including women and children, attended the gathering at the Jinnah Ground under tight security.




    The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain called head of Sunni Ittehad Council Sahibzada Fazal Karim and discussed with him the political situation in the country, internal and external threats to Pakistan, RGST, price-hike, menace of corruption and other issues being faced by the people. Mr Altaf Hussain said that the country was passing through difficult times and we had look up to IMF and World Bank for running the business of the state which had put a big question mark over the national honour and self-esteem. He said that those who were already paying taxes were being burdened through RGST while those who evaded taxes through unfair means were being given free hand. He regretted that the situation has come to pass where poor people were being forced to sell their children because of extreme poverty and were committing suicides because of hunger and want.

    Mr Altaf Hussain said that it was time for all political and religious parties to show a sense of unity by setting aside their political differences. “We must all rise to the occasion by working for national security and for freeing the country from the abyss of foreign debts in order to prove to the world that Pakistan is an honourable nation.” Sahibzada Fazal Karim agreed with Mr Altaf Hussain and said that some forces were trying to weaken the country hence we should defeat the conspiracies by making united efforts. He thanked Mr Altaf Hussain for his bold stance on police brutalities towards the participants of long march of Sunni Ittehad Council and asked for continuing the mutual contacts for national security.


  • ” Diyat for Aafia”: One minor detail again which Bhai missed as usual. Dr. Siddiqui committed the crime supposedly by attacking US servicemen at Bagram Air Base. Even though it may be in Afghanistan, but the Base itself is US territory, for the purpose of determining “venue”, where a crime was committed.

    So in US venue, the “Diyat” is not applicable. Even for the sake of argument, if we were able to apply it somehow, no one was killed, so “Diyat” will not be applicable.

    Lastly, Bhai should advise all the sector in charges to collect extra “chanda” so an appeal can be filed for the reversal of Afia’s verdict in US Supreme Court. Let’s see if Bhai can put his money, where his mouth is. 🙂

  • Dair Aya Durst Aya! That will be an alliance of forces in Pakistan who got Kalashnikov of same model in early 1980s. Taliban, Jamiat Islami and MQM were main stakeholders.

    So the ISI pron factions in Pakistan like Diyait Model for all. But they are missing Ajmal Kasaab because he was Kasaab (low caste) Punjabi. I heard Imran Khan on Geo Tv saying that “we are not Kammis of America”. So Khan Sahib surely will not name Ajmal. And Ajmal is non-Urdu so Mr. Pir Altaf Hussain (great feudal of Urban Karachi) will not allow any cut from Chanda for Ajmal.

    And it is also heard that Mr. Khan is going to describe Ghairat and Baygairati soon. In my village people refer Baygairat one who leaves her wife and children. So Both Baygairats will divide Pakistanis by using Two Nations theory Baygairat Nation and Gairat Nation.

  • MQM activist ‘unveils’ party’s plans Bureau Report
    DAWN WIRE SERVICE http://www.lib.virginia.edu/area-studies/SouthAsia/SAserials/Dawn/1995/29Je95.html

    ISLAMABAD, June 27: Hashimuz Zafar for whose release MQM had given a 48-hour ultimatum to the government at a press conference, held at the PID press centre on Tuesday, claimed that the MQM wanted to create a general
    desperation where the people of Karachi would be left with no other option but to support the demand of a separate province.”The present spate of terrorism will continue till March 1996 when the MQM has planned to put forth the demand of holding a referendum on the issue of a separate province,” he alleges.

    “If the government does not accept the demand for a referendum, the MQM would raise the issue at the international level and project it as a denial of the right of self-determination for creating a parity- between Karachi and Kashmir,” he said. Hashimuz Zafar in this regard referred to an open letter of Altaf
    Hussain of 1994 in which he had reportedly hinted that “agencies” wanted to create Sindhu Desh and greater Punjab and make Karachi a satellite state of a greater Punjab.

    Obviously such a situation would not be acceptable to the people of Karachi and they would prefer independence rather than becoming a satellite state of a greater Punjab, he said. Given the geographic importance of Karachi, Western and regional powers would willingly throw their weight behind the demand and force a
    solution of both the Kashmir and Karachi issues, he added. Zafar accused a former minister and brother of a serving general Chaudhry Nisar Ali, for leaking details of the army operation in Sindh to Altaf Hussain.

    He also alleged that leaders of the ANP in Karachi had been supplying arms to the MQM. He also named some PML MNAs from Karachi as the financiers of the MQM. Zafar seemed well prepared for the press conference. He had notes with him and in a very systematic way he not only gave details of his crimes but also briefed a hostile press about the MQM’s operational mechanism, its alleged Indian connections, strategy and ultimate goals.He was very confident and conducted the press conference like a seasoned media manager. He also gave full details about eight terrorist groups and their area of operation at present active in Karachi.

    Hashimuz Zafar, 25, and resident of house No C-17 Sir Syed Town, North Karachi, said he had joined the All Pakistan Muhajir Students Organisation at the age of 17 when he was studying in Government College of Technology.

    He confessed to involvement in numerous crimes, Including the murder of MQM Chairman Azim Ahmed Tariq.
    The organisational set-up of the MQM, which comprised units, sectors, zones and main centre at Nine-Zero, he said, was disbanded before the military operation. Now an underground information centre was maintaining a link with 22 different sectors. Some time Altaf Hussain, through Nadeem Nusrat, issues orders to the sectors-in-charge for carrying out different operations on mobile phones. Pagers were also being used to maintain a
    link and convey messages, he said. The sector in charge of Landhi, Amir Siddique, and the sector in charge
    of Malir, Qamar Ghalib, are currently manning the information centre,” he claimed.

    Giving details of various groups active at the sector level, he said the Khalid Taqi Butt group was active in the old city area, Liaquatabad, Lines Area, Society, Clifton, Defence and PIB Colony. The Farooq Dad
    group was operating in Pak Colony, Baldia Town, Nazimabad, and Gulbahar. The Faheem Commando group is active in Federal B. Area, North Karachi and Nazimabad.

    Tahir Rafi, Arif Qureshi, Khuram and 10 other boys were the members of the Mubeen Thunta group controlling the Malir and Model Town areas. Then there were other groups, like those headed by Javed Khan, Javed Michael,
    Asfar, Khaliq Anjum, Kamal Ansari alias Par, and Muhammad Shahid. The MQM, he said, was regularly maintaining a hit list which was update from time to time. Names of the members of MQM Haqiqi political rivals, defectors and known police officers were on this list. Altaf Hussain, he said, personally checked this but list and gave approval.

    However, a source disclosed that the programme of press conferences would continue for quite some time as a number of MQM “activists” had been arrested in Islamabad during the last one month. One by one all of these would be presented before the press and electronic media.
