Altaf urges diplomatic means for release of Aafia

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain on Tuesday called upon the government to use all diplomatic means for the release of Dr. Aafia Siddiqi.

The MQM Chief was addressing the participants of rallies taken out against conviction of Dr. Aafia Siddiqi by a US court.

Altaf Hussain said that protest rallies are being taken out by his party in different parts of the country for the release of Dr. Aafia Siddiqi.

He strongly condemned the conviction of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, the daughter of nation.

He said the nation is unaware of the charges under which Dr. Afia has been sentenced 86-years imprisonment.

Altaf questioned, who is responsible for the deaths of innocent people in Drone attacks and who would be punished for the same.

He said only superpower is Allah Almighty and the world can not be converted into a heaven of peace through use of force but it can be done with the help of love. No one likes terrorism and we oppose it too.

He called upon Karachiites to make the city peaceful and protect the life and property of each other.

He also offered fateha for slain MQM leader, Dr. Imran Farooq and condoled with his family.
