Rulers should admit inability to stop drone attacks: Altaf


LONDON: Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Chief, Altaf Hussain has demanded that Pakistan’s rulers speak the truth about their inability to stop US drone attacks in the tribal areas of the country.

In a statement issued here on Saturday, the MQM chief said facts could not be hidden in the era of information technology. Altaf Hussain questioned the capability of those claiming to stop drone attacks when they could not even arrest an armed man in Islamabad.

Hussain said that country’s defence could be strengthened only through speaking truth and learning from past mistakes.

“Nobody will dare to cast an evil eye on Pakistan if we jointly defend its borders,” he said and added that all the political parties should admit their mistakes and refrain from burying every issue.
