No judicial martial law will be allowed: Altaf Hussain
KARACHI: Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said that his party will not allow a judicial martial law to be imposed in the country, DawnNews reported.
In a speech, broadcast to more than 38 cities, from Karachi to Azad Kashmir, the MQM chief said that judges passed an order for the delimitation of constituencies in Karachi, under the guise of improving law and order.
He said that the order was intended to deny a single party from gaining electoral support in the city.
Altaf Hussain said that constituency issues were the responsibility of the election commission and not the courts.
He said that no one will be allowed to rob the people of their rights.
The MQM chief also said that the country was still under the rule of a feudal system. He also said that members of a single family can still sit in important positions of power in the country.
Altaf Hussain also warned of a conspiracy against the MQM by creating ethnic divisions. He said that all efforts to wipe out the MQM have failed.
