MQM’s Chief has proposed to ANP to fight Taliban terrorists jointly. I support Mr. Hussain proposal and ask ANP leaders to support him on this issue.
Dawn.com has reported:
Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain called Awami National Party President Asfandyar Wali on Tuesday and stressed the need for launching a joint struggle to counter terrorism.
According to a statement released from London, Mr Hussain told the ANP chief that while Punjab was the only province where a peaceful poll campaign was going on, fear and panic was being spread in the remaining three provinces.
He said the parties being targeted by terrorists in Sindh, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan would have to chalk out a plan to stop terrorist attacks.
I agree with Mr. Hussain. There is no doubt situation in smaller provinces are not good. However, we should not blame Punjab for the mess. SIndh’s own leaders are responsible for the mess. There is no love lost between rural and urban leaders of Sindh. This situation enables Punjab to interfere in Sindh and exploit the situation.
SIndh’s leaders will have to put their house in order before blaming Punjab. Lawlessness and violence in Sindh tells us about the mismanagement of coalition partners.
Senior National leaders should not give this kind of statement.
Whether only Punjab is Pakistan because it is the only province where electioneering is being carried out freely while the worst kind of terrorism is continuing in the other three provinces.
