MIRPURKHAS: Pak Sarzameen Party leader Mustafa Kamal on Friday severally criticized MQM chief Altaf Hussain, a day after his convoy was attacked by his political opponents.
Addressing a press conference, he accused Hussain of instigating violence against the Pak Sarzameen Party. “MQM chief Altaf Hussain has only one option, “raise hands and seek forgiveness from Allah”.
Without naming Altaf Hussain he said, “since the day we announced that we were coming to Mirpurkhas he has been instigating his young workers to do something. He has been telling them that he is their father and they are listening to all the criticism quietly,” he said.
He alleged that Altaf Hussain wanted to do politics over dead bodies. “He does not care about his workers. He only wants dead bodies.”
He said that several women who had lost their sons to the MQM had joined his party.
He said that his party was not only here to lead the country but to do ‘jihad’.
Kamal alleged that Altaf Hussain sometimes wanted to break Sindh into pieces, and sometimes he wanted to break Pakistan into pieces.
He said that no one should take the MQM chief seriously, as “most days he is not in his senses”.
Security beefed up for Pak Sarzameen party leaders
Authorities have beefed up security of Pak Sarzameen Party leader Syed Mustafa Kamal and his aides after his convoy was attacked in Mirpurkhas on Thursday.
Heavy contingent of police from three districts along with armoured carriers have been deployed for the security of former mayor Karachi and other leaders of his party.
They would be taken to Hyderabad amid strict security.
On Thursday, activists of Mustafa Kamal’s rival party pelted his convoy with stones, shattering window panes of the vehicles including the one he was traveling in.
The situation got real tense, as a scuffle broke out between the supporters of Mustafa Kamal and the activists of his rival party.
The situation led to an exchange of blows and as a result buttons of Mustafa Kamal’s shirt were broken while Anees Qaimkhani had his face bruised.
Mustafa Kamal said it is not the fault of these youngsters. “These boys have been misguided. We will replace the stones in their hand with books and pen,” he added.
Earlier, he inaugurated the office of his newly formed party whose name – Pak Sarzameen Party – he had announced on Pakistan Day on March 23.
