LAHORE, March 9: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Sunday said the entire country has to unite on a common front to fight terrorism.
Speaking via telephone to the Sufiya-e-Kiram Conference organised by his party in Lahore, the MQM chief said that if terrorism is not tackled then the future of the country would be bleak. He said that Pakistan was going through a very difficult period in its history.
“I want every person in Pakistan to be happy… I shed tears often seeing the state of the people,” he said. “We do not want the Sharia of people who blow up places of worship,” Altaf Hussain said. “What kind of Sharia allows the bombing of people who are offering their prayers,” he said. The MQM chief said that he alone has been raising a voice against terrorism. He lamented that the country’s leaders and politicians have not been able to face the problem head on. “Correct decisions have to be made in order to improve the situation,” he said.
