Addressing a ceremony in connection with his 61th birthday at Nine Zero—the MQM’s headquarters, he said the corruption, like termite, is eating into the country, adding those who did not offer any sacrifice for the homeland, cannot realize the real value of this country.
“Our ancestors sacrificed their lives during the freedom movement,” he added maintaining that the MQM was in past, charged with making efforts to establish Jinnahpur and hatching anti-state conspiracies.
Altaf Hussain underscored the need for carving out more provinces in the country, adding there is no country on the map of the world that has large populace but with less number of provinces.
But, he added, Pakistan is the only country that has only four provinces despite such a huge population.
Altaf Hussain demanded the local bodies system should be installed in order to save Pakistan, adding Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri also is speaking of new provinces and Imran Khan also is demanding to introduce local units.
“Sindhi nationalists raised a lot of hue and cry against me over my statement regarding making new provinces,” he added.
