PTI politics a sham, and that by calling for change while promoting feudalism was self-contradictory.

MULTAN: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) deputy convener Farooq Sattar called Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) politics a sham, and that by calling for change while promoting feudalism was self-contradictory.
Farooq Sattar along with the MQM top echelon including Raza Haroon and Iftikhar Akbar Randhawa along with zonal heads of MQM Multan were conducting a discussion with journalists at a meet-the-press at the Multan Press Club ahead of its impending rally on December 23.
Replying to a question on the promotion of feudalism and dynastic family politics by PTI when it announced Shah Mehmood Qureshi as its party’s Vice Chairman, Sattar said that political parties of Pakistan could no longer deceive the people of Pakistan. Adding that support for family politics that transferred the charge from generation to generation in Pakistan was a bluff. “People of Pakistan especially of the rural areas have to resist this sham since it will destroy their future,” Sattar said.
Answering a question regarding the release of MQM-Haqiqi chief Afaq Ahmed, MQM leaders said that they respected the decision of the judiciary and also respect this particular decision as well. “We firmly believe in independence of judiciary of Pakistan.”
Sattar suggested that there were forces working to undermine MQM’s rally in Multan, by detracting their attention. “Law and order situation in Karachi is jeopardised by design because they know the response of the people of Punjab and in other provinces joining MQM,” he said.
“They want to restrict us to Nine-Zero (MQM’s central offices in Karachi)but it’s the people who have empowered us all over the Pakistan.“
Sattar said that the MQM rally in Multan will be the biggest procession in the history of south Punjab Pakistan.
Talking about the rights of minorities, he said that the minorities in Pakistan were also human beings,  and that people needed to realise this. Minorities are citizens of Pakistan and they too had a right to enjoy their independent practices, added Sattar..
MQM also criticised the government for delaying action against political tension until they reached tipping point before acting. “Politicians and those sitting in government never control the politics of Pakistan, the question of the time was why they let the situation reach a point where it threatens’ the coalition government?” Sattar asked, adding that indulging in such practices would leave no one in the government.
Talking about the PTI procession scheduled to be held in Karachi on December 25, Sattar said that every party, whether political or religious, had the democratic right to organise a procession in any part of Pakistan. He said that the MQM supported the right of all parties to hold processions and welcome PTI in Karachi.
Altaf Hussain will only return to Pakistan to be Prime Minister
MQM leader and former mayor of Karachi, Mustafa Kamal on Saturday said that while MQM loyalists wished for Altaf Hussain to return to Pakistan, he would only return to Pakistan to take charge of federal government.
