Sectarian Killings Might Break Pakistan: Altaf Hussain
KARACHI: Expressing serious concerns over the continued sectarian killings in Pakistan, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said on Saturday that the trend might break the country.
Addressing a conference organised to promote harmony between different sects of Islam, Hussain said that the enemies of Pakistan may take advantage of the growing rift between the various Islamic sects present in the country.
Earlier, Hussain had talked to Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf and Interior Minister Rehman Malik over Eid holidays and expressed the same concern over the recent surge in sectarian violence.
“The people who are taking Shias off buses and killing them after identifying them are not just murdering Shias, they are conspiring to murder Pakistan,” Altaf said.
He said every Shia and every Pakistani citizen – whether Hindu, Christian, Sikh or of any other faith – are equal Pakistanis. People who are forcing Hindus, Christians and other non-Muslims to leave Pakistan are actually tyrannising the country and Jinnah’s teachings, according to him. Via: Tribune
