Altaf will be responsible if I’m assassinated: TV anchor Absar Alam

A renowned TV anchorperson has announced that his family would register a murder case against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chairman Altaf Hussain if anything were to happen to him.

The public announcement from TV anchor Absar Alam comes after a direct threat by Altaf Hussain in an address to the participants of a sit-in organised by the MQM on Wednesday against re-polling in NA-250 constituency.

Addressing media persons during his speech, Altaf had said, “You have the right to criticise, but not manipulate or spread lies against the sons of those who created Pakistan.”

Altaf subsequently retracted parts of his statements and apologised to media persons if he had “hurt their feelings”. In his earlier speech, Altaf warned the media that if they did not mend their ways, somebody from his organisation of millions of people might lose his cool. “If that person does something bad to one of you, don’t blame the MQM or Altaf Hussain,” he had said.

Hussain claimed that the media was clearly biased against his party, portraying them in a bad light. Using an old Urdu proverb, the MQM chief said, “Dogs bark when caravans move. I want to tell the media persons that they can criticise the MQM as much as they want but honestly.”

“We all know about favouritism and manipulation. We have been running the party for the past 35 years. You are like our kids, our children, you can’t teach us politics,” he had said. “Are you going to teach us the ethics of journalism? You boys!”

He warned the media to quit playing games with the MQM and said if the MQM ran out of patience, then neither the anchors nor the owners of the media houses would find a place to hide.

    His Highness Absaar ALAM would certainly seek death for himself at his own ..for manipulating things over the media
    He will surely seek honorable (if possible) death after getting the hatred from ALTAF LOVERS
    Dont try to make ALTAF Hussain act like MUJEEB ur REHMAN !!
    Remember !!
    the seventh Fleet had never reached in 1971
    so better do not take things for granted

    Since AT the Time of partition in 1947, Our Ancestors came here with no love for you Paindoos, but for a homeland promised by Quaid-e-Azam where they can live with peace and equality
    but the quota system and other injustices created chaos and YOU (the Yellow-Journalism promoters) never spoke about it.
    We would be free to decide for ourselves.
    You would remain crying over split milk

    this is fact that the majority people who migrated from India at that time were urdu speakers… other language speakers were already here… no major sacrifice was from them…..but saying this that we are the one who build Pakistan is of-course wrong… but to be honest people from Karachi & Hyderabad are the most talented people in Pakistan.

      There is no doubt in that… that Muhajir people WERE highly educated, focused, well mannered and honest, but what went wrong then why they are now converted to Uneducated, Terrorists, Animal Skin and Mobile Snatchers, Killers and Bhatta+Zakat Khor… who made them to do all this… why that respect which people had for them has now become a hatred even Karachiites themselves want to get rid of this Mafia which has ruined life of millions and also lost their loved ones by the massacre by MQM itself to its own people. Its time to open your eyes and think in the positive direction and get rid of this terrorised environment now… Live a life with grace and pride… not with the nicknames like… Langra, Loola, Kaana,, Andha, Madhuri, Pahari, Commando… just think of the youth who wasted their life for the cause of having a better life… Has any of the common Muhajir's life improved? Only those got the jobs in Govt sector who made crimes, killed people and those who have swear upon their mothers that they will be sending monthly bhatta of this and this amount to London got the seats in Assemblies… I wish people open their locked brains and see the real game played with them…

    The British authorities proclaim to promote good governance and human rights particularly in all Commonwealth countries. When they will rein in Altaf Hussain who incites violence and is the biggest obstacle in the way of citizens of Karachi to enjoy their fundamental rights? For how long UK government will allow Altaf Hussain leader of Pakistan's MQM brazenly violate right of free choice in Pakistan?

    Allah condemns.

    وَمَا يَتَّبِعُ أَكْثَرُهُمْ إِلَّا ظَنًّا ۚ إِنَّ الظَّنَّ لَا يُغْنِي مِنَ الْحَقِّ شَيْئًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ

    "Most of them only follow the false suppositions and the incitement arising from the state of their minds and feeling. An opinion offered on insufficient presumptive evidence cannot override the truth nor overrule it; Allah is 'Alimun (Omniscient) of all that they do"..Quran 10:36

    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُحِبُّونَ أَن تَشِيعَ الْفَاحِشَةُ فِي الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ ۚ وَاللَّـهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

    Surely (as for) those who love that scandal should circulate respecting those who believe, they shall have a grievous chastisement in this world and the hereafter; and Allah knows, while you do not know. (Qiran 24:19)

    You are loosing for nothing by blaming Altaf without any basis.
