Altaf to file reply, not protest over SC verdict


Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain has said he had no plan to protest against the Supreme Court’s judgment against his remarks, rather he would prefer to submit his reply in the apex court while living within the limits of the constitution.

In a telephonic address to party workers on Friday, he reiterated that no power of the world could exterminate the MQM except almighty Allah.

He made it clear that people had observed the end of those who used to level fake and fabricated allegations in the name of politics for their vested interests.

He said he had great respect for national institutions, which is why he had decided to submit his reply with the court.

However, he regretted that the courts had not taken notice of the killings of hundreds of MQM workers despite several petitions moved by the party seeking the judiciary’s attention.

The Supreme Court on Friday issued a contempt of court notice to Altaf under Article 204 and Section 3 of the Contempt of Court law.
