PTI, JI protest in London against Altaf Hussain

- May 19, 2013 - Updated 2151 PKT - From Web Edition

LONDON: Responding to the call of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamat-e-Islami (JI), hundreds of demonstrators lodged their protest against Muttahida Qaumi Movment (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain’s telephonic speeches in Pakistan.


As many as 1500 PTI and JI supports and other demonstrators gathered at 10 Downing Street in London to lodge protest against MQM chief Altaf Hussain. The PTI protesters claimed that Altaf Hussain had threatened its anti vote rigging demonstrators in Karachi with dire consequences during a telephonic speech.


The participants of the demonstration demanded of the British government to put a curb on any interference by any kind of group or organization from Britain into the politics of Pakistan and provocation of the latter’s people.


Meanwhile, the London Police earlier rejected arresting activists of a Pakistan-based political party here.


According to sources, the London police came up with this clarification in the wake of a news item claiming the arrests that went viral on the social media.


The Metropolitan Police in a statement issued here termed such reports as groundless fabrications.


New Scotland Yard also said that they had received a myriad of individual complaints against a political personality belonging to Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), which they were looking into closely.

Instead of PTI and JI flags - how about ONLY using Pak flags? That will REALLY annoy those who wish the divide our country on regional / racial grounds!!

I wish the PTI and JI show as much concern over the 40.000 Pakistanis mostly Pashtuns murdered by Taliban in last ten years as they do for their leader. This goes to show we should all follow Imran Talib Khans policy and negotiate with the killer of that woman. Secondly, these protests are amusing, they attack MQM they its easy to attack minorities, but not Taliban. Cowards I say!

This country is claiming that they are the pioneer of Democracy and they are against of terrorism, but how come they let this guy stay in their county and give him protection. He should be arrested and should be responsible for the killing of thousands of people and for creating a place of hell in Karachi .This is the time that people have to stand up againt this .

Altaf Hussain, if you are such a patriot of Pakistan, why don't you go back to Pakistan and run your party from there. You hide here in the UK and force people to come to your rallies, you can see from the body language of your so called supporters how enthusiastic they are to be there!

Karachi has not seen any peace ever since the MQM came to power.

Altaf Hussien is a coward, who hides away like a rat, only coming out of sewerage at night time . And the midget DR Sattar who sits on his shoulder is a gross looking mutant just like his boss.

United Kingdom
we need some one like Naseerullah Babar tp get rid of this menace.

He is responsible of the killing and no one else,he himself threatened PTI workers and leaders through out the Elections and still threatening. It had to stop after British Police put him in Jail or deport him from England. where he never come back.
