British High Commissioner Adam Thomson took notice of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain’s statements of “separating Karachi” on Wednesday, reported Express News.
Thousands of complaints were sent to the London metropolitan police after Altaf addressed his supporters in Karachi where he allegedly threatened PTI supporters who were protesting against rigging.
Altaf also said that Karachi should be separated from Pakistan if the mandate given to the MQM by the people is not acceptable.
The news reports indicates that British authorities will take action against him. They do not want to strain their relation with the new elected government in Pakistan.
Mr. Hussain’s opponents took advantage of his mistake and attacked. I know this will not end his grip over his supporters for the time being. However, British government decides to ban on his speeches, it will prove disastrous for him and the party. I don’t why did he give such an inflammatory statement. He was trying create supporters in Punjab. His statement has dented his image.
