Altaf sees conspiracy to fan sectarian violence
KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain warned on Wednesday that a conspiracy was being hatched to spark sectarian violence in Karachi and urged the government, law-enforcement agencies and religious leaders to play their role in creating sectarian harmony.
“Sectarian harmony is the need of the hour,” he said while addressing religious scholars belonging to different schools of thought in the Jinnah Ground, near Nine Zero, the party headquarters.
“The Holy Quran also speaks about holding fast the rope of Allah and be not divided. The scholars should preach love and brotherhood. A conspiracy is being hatched to ignite sectarian strife in Karachi and people should frustrate this by remaining united.”
The MQM leader said he could not instigate people to fight as long as he was alive.
