Narinder Modi has exposed all of his men in Pakistan. Firstly, it was exiled Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti who came out in a video message, expressed his solidarity with India and Narendra Modi, thanked PM Modi for his support and requested his additional help against the government of Pakistan.
Secondly, this past Monday we have seen and witnessed what happened on the streets of Karachi. Workers of Muthida Qaumi Movement (MQM) came out in the form of mob, damaged public property, attacked the offices of ARY, Samaa TV & Neo TV, and in its consequence one person got killed and several others left injured. This was not as simple as it looks, there were solid reasons why the mob of MQM workers came out, it was Altaf Hussain, Quaid MQM who, while addressing his workers, used anti Pakistan slogans, accused military leadership and incited his workers to violence to go all out to attack the offices of News Channels. All of this happened suddenly but credit goes to our Security Forces and Law Enforcement Agencies who acted quickly and prevented the further loss of property and life. But, once again we saw our Karachi burning.
This Karachi incident has raised many questions in the minds of Pakistanis and commentators. If we list them, these are;
What has Altaf Hussain achieved?
Altaf Hussain acted to support India’s cause to create unrest in Pakistan’s metropolitan city?
Altaf Hussain validated Narendra Modi’s Independence Day speech where he quoted that people of Pakistan thanked him for his support?
Altaf Hussain has not only exposed himself completely but he has also established that all of the earlier charges on him and on his party’s connections with RAW were right. He has once again proved that while living in London he is only serving the interests of India and has nothing to do with Pakistan. He does not even care about his voters who vote for him in the metropolitan city. Keeping the background of hate-speeches against Pakistan, its military and in and finally he also exposed India’s plans to destabilize Pakistan.
In the last one and a half month, we have witnessed that after the extra judicial killing of Kashmiri freedom fighter Burhan Muzafar Wani, Indian government and Indian Law Enforcement Agencies are under severe national and international criticism against their atrocities on the people of Kashmir. Indian government has completely failed to suppress the Kashmir freedom movement and the death of Burhan Muzafar Wani gave a new life to the movement and government failed to suppress it even after closure of all mediums, banning internet, news channels and newspapers. However, to divert focus from Kashmir, Narendra Modi’s government gave a clear policy statement on 12th August in their All Parties Conference and cautioned that Pakistan must stop interfering in Kashmir otherwise they will highlight Pakistan’s Balochistan Province. Then we have seen what Brahamdagh Bugti and Altaf Hussain did afterwards. It was just a failed effort to divert international attention from Indian Occupied Kashmir to Pakistan. Whereas this is known to the world that in Kashmir India himself has exposed itself and the martyrdom of Burhan Wani gave a new breathing space to the movement and brought out a new generation of Kashmiris.
The history of Altaf Hussain’s association with India and RAW does not span over last couple of years, it now spans over the last couple of decades infact. In 2004, Altaf Hussain first time visited India on the invitation of Hindustan Times. While addressing a group of selected people, he quoted by saying that 1947’s partition of India was biggest mistake of the history and he said that said he wants India to take back all Muhajirs. In the recent couple of years especially after the murder of Dr. Imran Farooq, many evidences surfaced between the connections of MQM – RAW Nexus and their agreements were being exposed in front of Scotland Yard regarding the receipt of funding from RAW. Additionally, documentaries made by Owen Bennett Jones for BBC Network were the other unchallenged evidences against Altaf Hussain and MQM.
Now if we look into current Karachi situation, immediately after the attacks on News Channels in Karachi, security institutions came into action and arrested MQM Karachi Leadership including Dr. Farooq Sattar, Khawaja Izhar-ul-Hassan, Aamir Khan and Dr. Aamir Liaqat but they were later on released after initial investigations by Sindh Rangers. On the same night, Rangers while conducting operations against the violators of law, seized the offices of MQM in Karachi and in other parts of the Sindh. However, next day after getting released from Rangers’ custody, Dr. Farooq Sattar while addressing a press conference from Karachi Press Club eliminated MQM Karachi from its London camp and pointed out that party will be governed from Karachi without any interference from London and Altaf Hussain. He along with his party leaders distanced himself from Altaf Hussain’s anti-Pakistan statements but immediate developments show that things look different and once again it was a gimmick to divert attention.
The very next day Altaf Hussain once again addressed his workers, but this time he addressed US workers instead of Pakistani workers and repeated the same language and in his address he once again asked India, Israel and US for their help against the state of Pakistan.
This is the right time for Pakistan’s government and its security establishment to tight the screws against all the friends and supporters of Modi present within Pakistan and I am currently viewing the screens of news channels showing security institutions and people of Karachi are removing decade-old images of Altaf Hussain and getting rid of this evil. May Almighty Allah bless this country and give us strength to get rid of evils like Altaf Hussain.
