ISLAMABAD: Minister for Interior and Narcotics Control Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said Altaf Hussain in his speech on Sunday night crossed all limits of civility, politeness and gentility and used worst language against security and defence institutions.
In a statement, the minister said this kind of language, which our enemy India is using for a long time, is not acceptable.
He said disgraceful talk of Altaf Hussain about Pakistan army and Rangers and use of abusive language and threats against honourable people is beyond understanding and unacceptable.
The Interior Minister said, “We showed patience but the time has come that formally this matter is taken up with the government of Britain.”
He said no person can be allowed to use disgraceful and threatening language against security institutions of the country and their chiefs.
The minister further said the media of Pakistan showed maturity and responsibility by not entirely airing the dishonourable, objectionable and condemnable speech.
The language used by Altaf Hussain regarding 1971 is the same which is used by India, he added.
He said Pakistan, its army or Rangers are not responsible for the present predicament of Altaf Hussain but he is facing the situation because of his deeds.
It seems that as noose is tightened around him in Britain he is getting angry against security institutions of Pakistan in disappointment, he remarked.
Interior Minister said the Urdu speaking community is civilized and cultured and asked whether Altaf Hussain is representing the Urdu speakers or humiliating them with his abusive and disgraceful language.
