In his remarks on the occasion, MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar said that the party disassociated itself from its founder following his controversial statement against the country. He said that the party should not be pushed to the wall on the act of one individual. He said the MQM is a pro-Pakistani party and has distanced itself from those who raised slogans against the country. He said there is now need to embrace those who are chanting slogans of Long Live Pakistan.
Minister for States and Frontier Regions Abdul Qadir Baloch said the MQM Chief in fact has never accepted Pakistan and his acts and statements are a clear proof of it. He said come what may nothing against the Pakistan’s security and dignity will be tolerated. He welcomed the decision of MQM to disassociate itself from Altaf Hussain.
