http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-22559282 Report says ::
“…Since the mid-1980s, the MQM has won every poll it has contested in Karachi and it did so again in last Saturday’s general election.But this time, it is facing strong and widespread allegations of rigging and electoral fraud.Half a dozen smaller parties, led by former international cricketer Imran Khan’s Movement for Justice Party (PTI), have been holding rallies and sit-ins to demand a re-run in Karachi.On Sunday, addressing party workers from London, Mr Hussain responded to the allegations by appearing to threaten protesters with violence, and suggesting that if his party’s mandate was tampered with, Karachi would have no choice but to separate from Pakistan…”
“…The BBC’s Shahzeb Jillani in Karachi says that Mr Hussain effectively controls the city of 18 million people from his MQM headquarters in north London…”

MQM’s own website on 20 May 2013 says = “…Altaf Hussain believes history has proved the two-nation theory wrong. He contended that: The idea of Pakistan was dead at its inception, when the majority of Muslims chose to stay back after partition, a truism reiterated in the creation of Bangladesh in 1971…”

Altaf Hussain believes history has proved the two-nation theory wrong.[15] He contended that:

The idea of Pakistan was dead at its inception, when the majority of Muslims chose to stay back after partition, a truism reiterated in the creation of Bangladesh in 1971

Altaf Hussain and his party, MQM, follow the philosophy of Realism and Practicalism.
“…

Hussain has stated on numerous occasions that the

division of the subcontinent was the biggest blunder in the history of mankind and Nehru and Abdul Kalam Azad are responsible for it because they rejected that Grouping Formula and greater autonomy for muslim majority Province Of India. If they accepted it then Jinnah never have demanded a separate Pakistan and Jinnah was ready for co-exist within India

He believes that the partition divided the Muslims of the subcontinent and made them weaker as a result…”

“…The “International Secretariat” of the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) is based in the suburb of Edgware, and from the first floor of a grey tower block their leader, Altaf Hussain, addresses huge audiences in the southern port city.

Opposition parties say that much of the violence was orchestrated by the MQM’s leadership in London. They allege that the party called its supporters out onto the streets to defend President Musharraf’s decision to suspend the country’s Chief Justice, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

The MQM – which is allied to President Musharraf’s supporters in the Pakistani parliament – is alleged to have mobilised a large body of supporters to prevent the chief justice from leaving the airport when he visited Karachi on Saturday….”

  1. I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re working with? I’m
    experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any suggestions?

    • Yes – Mate security is a “problem”. It should NOT BE if you NEVER type your password in front of your family and friends. That’s it. If ever you type your wordpress or any blog password in front of other its NOT a secret password anymore. Of course whenever I need to go into my BLOG STATS I need to type password in front of others BUT I change my PASSWORD (last two digits) every day ! This is why ALL experts ask us to keep changing our passwords. Thanks for asking.
