Days after issuing a controversial statement allegedly seeking India’s help besides calling on UN, NATO and the US to send their troops to Karachi, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Tuesday backtracked from his remarks.
In an audio statement issued on MQM’s official website, he said he never made any appeal to the Indian Army or Indian government to save Mohajirs in Pakistan from oppression in his address on the occasion of the party’s 19th Annual Convention in Dallas, US.
“People who are alleging this statement to me are distorting facts,” said the MQM chief.
“I challenge all those who are saying that I uttered the words that Indian Army or Indian government should come to Pakistan for helping Mohajirs and saving them from oppression to play these sentences from my speech on any forum in the world.”
“I am ready to lay down my head if accusers can come up with these sentences from my speech. If they fail to present these sentences, then they should die in shame.”
