Rulers should admit inability to stop drone attacks: Altaf


Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chairman Altaf Hussain has demanded that Pakistan’s rulers speak the truth about their inability to stop United States drone attacks in the tribal areas of the country.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Hussain questioned the capability of those claiming to stop drone attacks when they could not arrest an armed man in Islamabad.

Hussain said the country’s defence could be strengthened only if the rulers admitted and learned from past mistakes.

“Nobody will dare attack Pakistan if we jointly defend its borders,” he said.
