Altaf readies nation for ‘political drone attack’ in 72 hours
KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain in wee hours of Sunday asked the nation to be ready for a ‘political drone attack’ from him in next two to three days, DawnNews reported.
Speaking to members of the party’s Rabita (coordination) Committee via telephone from London, he claimed that the announcement, which he referred as a ‘drone strike,’ will be unanswerable.
“No-one in the country will be able to respond to my drone attack,” he said.
The MQM chief appealed the public to wait for his move and mentally prepare themselves.
With the Supreme Court set to take up contempt notice against Altaf Hussain on Monday, the party had requested the court on Friday to exempt him from personally appearing before the bench seized with the issue.
MQM leader Farooq Sattar filed the petition in the court’s Karachi registry through his council Dr Farogh Naseem.
The court had observed that in a telephonic address from London to a public gathering in Karachi on Dec 2 the MQM chief had made contemptuous and threatening remarks against the court and its judges for issuing an order about fresh delimitation of constituencies in Karachi.
