KARACHI: Chief of Muttahida Qaumi Movement Altaf Hussain has appealed to the protesting parties to defer their protests considering the current situation of the country and difficulties faced by victims of floods.
In a statement issued here Monday, he said “if I had been among the protestors and leading a protest movement I would havedeferred my protest keeping in view the critical and heart-rending situation caused by torrential rains and flood. I would have formed teams and sent them to the affected areas to help the people.”
“It is wrong to stage music events in the protest demonstrations considering the current situation of the country. It is against my conscience and tolerance. I appeal to the religious and political parties that are staging protest demonstrations to pay attention to the plight of our sisters and daughters who have become widows. They are looking for respectable places and support. Innocent kids are crying. These kids cannot express their feelings through words. They are expressing their plight with cries. Men, women, old and young have been stuck in the affected areas”, Altaf Hussain said.
“I once again appeal to the protesting parties in the name of Islam, humanity, decency and morality to defer their protest keeping in view the critical situation of the country. You can start your protest again once things come to normal”, he added.
He prayed to Allah to give us strength to help the affected families.
