Terrorists intended to murder Liaqatabad Town Nazim Hafiz Osama Qadri


According to the investigation conducted by Muttahida Qaumi Movement Investigation Committee, the 5 terrorists belonging to the banned secretarian outfit 'Lashkar e Jhangvi' who were arrested in a raid by the CID, had intended to target the senior leadership of MQM and the attempt had failed due to the timely action by the security agencies against them. According to the report the terrorists Atif, Afzal, Waseem Barudi, Nasir alias Saifullah and Shakeel Barmi were arrested from areas Korangi Town and Nazimabad.

Among these terrorists Nasir alias Saifullah, is the body guard and a close associate of Parvez Mehmood who is a representative of Jamaat e Islami and former town nazim of Liaqatabad. These terrorists had got their training in militancy and terrorism from South Waziristan. According to the investigative report these terrorists on the directions of Jamaat e Islami had intended to target the representatives of MQM, according to the plan their first target was Liaqatabad Haq Parast town Nazim Hafiz Osama Qadri whom these terroris had intended to murder and then when MQM's top brass members and senior leadership of the party would gather to grieve and participate in the funeral rites of the deceased, the terrorist would strike using a suicide bomber on the spot and thus eliminate MQM of its top leadership. Luckily, their timely arrest by the security agencies along with the recovery of suicide jackets, explosives and deadly weapons from their possession prevented them to carry out their cowardly act of terror.

The report also suggests that banned terrorist organizations that are in favour of Taliban have taken refuge in different areas of Karachi and they are planning to carry out terrorist attacks in the city with the help of several religious and secretarian outfits. MQM Rabita committee has demanded President Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Federal Interior Minister Rahman Malik to take immediate notice against the terrorists that are operating within the ranks of Jamaat e Islami and planning to target Muttahida Qaumi Movement's senior members and elected representatives and take action against them aswell as their terrorist guardians in Jamaat e Islami.

Crowds in their thousands along with office bearer's and MQM's candidates aswell as members of Provincial committee thronged to the rally in hundreds of vehicles to show their support for their most favourite party.

MQM Leader Quaid e Tehreek Altaf Hussain bhai in his latest message appealed to the people of Gilgit-Baltistan and the Northern Areas to fully participate in the upcoming general elections with fervour and enthusiasm as MQM is the only hope for the people of this region who have been deprived of their rights since the past 62 years. He said that many different political and religious parties have won elections in this region and made tall claims after coming to power. However, even till this day most of their issues remain unresolved since no matter which politician came to power in this region they only worked towards solving their own personal issues in self-interests.

He also said that all these religious and political parties have feudal lords in their ranks and had they been really sincere towards solving problems that are faced by the common citizens then these political parties would have awarded party tickets to those workers belonging to the poor and middle-class backgrounds. He said that MQM is the only political party in the entire 62 year history of Pakistan that has included and awarded tickets to the educated, competent and proficient people from the poor and middle-class backgrounds and sent them to the Senate, National Assembly, Provincial Assembly and the Local Bodies.

Quaid e Tehreek Altaf Hussain bhai appealed that the people of this region that they have tried other religious and political parties in the past that have repeatedly failed to solve their issues - but now, it is time they should give MQM a chance to serve them by voting for the success of MQM's Haq Parast candidates in large numbers. He informed the people that MQM is your political party and it will make every effort and strive constantly in order to attain the rights of the deprived peoepl of Gilgit-Baltistan, Skardu and the Northern Area and will work tirelessly to bring about the much needed rapid development work in the region.

Assassination attempts on Quaid e Tehreek Altaf Hussain

Quaid e Tehreek Altaf Hussain's philosophy has always been to protect the rights of the poor and middle-class Pakistanis because he knew that 98% of our nation's population has been held at gun point by the top 2% rich and powerful of the country and therefore he felt the need to eliminate this system of abuse that is being used by the elites that has been going on for most of the past 62 years since our country's independence.

So naturally he made a lot of enemies in the process of enlightening the poor and middle-class masses of the nation and help them break from the shackles of corruption, injustice, poverty and the abuse of power by the so-called leaders of our country and thus when the establishment felt threated by his movement they decided that in order to protect their interests, it would be best to end his life, after all why would the rich and powerful feudal or a businessman would want to give rights to the common man, it is in their nature to suppress the poor and create a system in which the 'rich becomes richer and the 'poor becomes poorer' and have the ability to control to destiny of the common man.

There were 2 assassination attempts that were made on Altaf Hussain when his popularity shot up through the roof and his movement was at its peak.

The first attack took place during his visit to the United States in New York in 1987, the second assassination attempt took place right here in Karachi when he returned from his visit to London on December 21, 1991. When Altaf Hussain's flight  reached Karachi from London, it is alledged that some hitmen were hired to eliminate Altah Hussain and with him his party and its philisophy but it was not to happen. After landing at Karachi airport he and his party workers left for Ayesha Manzil and upon arriving to Ayesha Manzil in Federal B Area the attackers armed with a hand grenade tried to blow up the car in which Altaf bhai was travelling, luckily the grenate blew up in the attackers hands and one of the attackers died on the spot while the other attacker who was injured by the blast handed himself to the authorities, namely the police.

 The police then set a great example of justice when at the scene of the incident the police came and when the second injured attacker handed himself to them unarmed and injured, the police shot him dead at the scene and later called it a police encounter. MQM supporters alledged that the police obviously knew about the whole conspiracy to kill Altah Hussain and were present at the scene of the incident in order to make sure that the job is done or otherwise destroy any evidence if undone and so the second hitman was eliminated in order to protect those present in the establishment at the time from being convicted in this regard.

By the grace of God, Quaid e Tehreek Altaf Hussain escaped unhurt in both these attempts.

MQM Muttahida Qaumi Movement - A Brief Introduction

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement generally known as MQM came into being after the formation of the Student organization, the All Pakistan Mohajir Student Organization (APMSO) which was founded in 1978 by Altaf Hussain which subsequently gave birth to the Mohajir Qaumi Movement (MQM) in 1984. It is the third-largest Political party in Pakistan after Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Group (PML-N).

Initially the party was founded on socio-ethnic lines representing the rights for the Mohajirs or Urdu speaking community of Pakistan who were often treated badly and discriminated upon by the establishment that viewed them as third grade citizens. On January 1991 MQM renamed itself from Mohajir Qaumi Movement a name that was often viewed and presented an image of the party as one that deals only with the socio-political issue that are faced by the Mohajirs or the Urdu-speaking people of the country to Muttahida Qaumi Movement representing itself as United National Movement that deals with the socio-political issue for all ethnicities of the Country. MQM now maintains the most liberal, progressive and secular stances on many political and social issues amongst all other Political parties in Pakistan.

The history of MQM lies in the first political organization of Mohajirs, called the All Pakistan Mohajir Student Organization (APMSO), which was founded in 1978 by Altaf Hussain who then was a student of Pharmacy at the University of Karachi. The purpose of APMSO was as a result of the deprivation of the fundamental right to education of the Mohajir students in their own country, Province and cities like Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Mirpurkhas and other urban centres where Mohajirs are in majority. As a result of the “Quota System” local Mohajirs were deprived of admission in the universities and professional colleges and
deprived of rooms in hostels despite having better and required grades in comparison to the students of other provinces of Pakistan or rural areas of Sindh as well as employment in government jobs.

Within 3 years of its existence as a political party, the MQM drew enormous crows, the height of success of which was the rally of August 8, 1986 at Nishtar Park in Karachi which drew enormous crowds in their thousands who stood despite the rain, the party still celebrates that moment when the party arose as a Political force and one year later MQM swept the local bodies elections in November 1987 in Karachi and several other urban areas of Sindh. In 1988 Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) won the general elections and formed a coalition government in Sindh with the help of MQM and a 59-point agreement called the Karachi Accord was signed between the PPP and MQM which included reforms for the protection of the democratic system and political rights, development in urban areas and creating merit based criteria for admissions to Universities and Colleges. There were many differences between MQM and PPP, however, the main difference between the two was MQM workers and their leaders came from poor and middle-class families who primarily believed in their slogan 'Power to the People' whereas PPP's workers too came from poor and middle-class families, however, their leaders were rich and powerful feudals who believed in preserving the feudal system which unlike MQM, gave 'Power to the powerful'. Thus, within few months of the agreement the alliance broke in October 1989 when MQM joined hands with PPP's opponents, the Pakistan Muslim League (PML).

By October 1990 elections, MQM emerged as the third-strongest political party in the Country this time making its alliance with Pakistan Muslim League (PML). In January 1991, MQM then known as 'Mohajir Qaumi Movement' decided to renamed itself as 'Muttahida Qaumi Movement'. Several senior party members were critical of this name changing and showed their dissent which led MQM to delay the name changing of the partys nomenclature.

On 21 December 1991, an assassination attempt was made on MQM's Chief leader Altaf Hussain but he escaped injury. In January 1992, Altaf Hussain left for London for medical treatment and in light of the assissination attempts that were made on him, his party workers decided that it was best that he and other top-brass of MQM stay abroad, thus since 1992 Altaf Hussain has been in self-exile and at the same time he has been able to successfully run his party from London ever since.
In 1992 an Operation by the name of Operation Clean-up aka Operation Blue Fox was announced by the military that sought to cleanse the city of Anti-Social elements and it was initiated on June 19, 1992. The main purpose of the operation was to sabotage an alledged plot to form a breakaway state by the name of Jinnahpur in Pakistan that would serve as a homeland for the Mohajir Urdu-speaking community after the military claimed that it had found maps of the proposed state of Jinnahpur in the offices of MQM.

MQM and the Urdu-speaking community at the time labelled 'Jinnahpur' as a conspiracy and an excuse to launch a military operation in Karachi and other MQM strong hold areas in order to weaken the party's image, their influence and brand them as anti-Pakistan elements. During this whole military operation against MQM, a total of 15,000 civilians, mostly MQM workers and ordinary citizens were ruthlessly murdered and even women were raped by the security agencies namely the police officials during house searches.

The government then, led by Nawaz Sharif completely denied having any knowledge about 'Jinnahpur' however, on August 24, 2009 two former military men who were major players in the 1992 operation clean-up namely former Intelligence bureau director-general Brigadier(retd) Imtiaz Ahmed better known as Imtiaz
Billa and General(retd) Naseer Akhtar disclosed that the alledged map of Jinnahpur was a 'drama' and its publication was meant to malign MQM. Brigadier Imtiaz confessed on a popular tv channel Geo Tv that no maps of Jinnahpur were found in the offices of MQM rather they were orchestrated in order to create divisions among various sections of the nation and that it was launched after full consultation and with the full knowledge of the proper chain-of-command, which included the then-Army chief Asif Nawaz, president Ghulam Ishaq Khan and the then prime minister Nawaz Sharif. General(retd) Naseer Akhtar who was the corps commander Karachi at the time too confessed that he had no knowledge of the Jinnahpur map and that was the reason why the Inter-Services Public Relations ISPR withdrew it within 2 days of its publication.

Soon after the two former Generals made the confession during a Television interview, Altah hussain made a Televised press conference in which he said that his party’s stance stood vindicated and termed the confessional statements by two pivotal charters of the operation as the victory of truth and justice, and proof that the establishment was scared of the party’s pro-middle class and anti-corruption and feudalism message. MQM leader Altaf Hussain demanded a formation of a national truth and reconciallatory commission to put facts before the nation after the astonishing relevations by two former generals related to the 1992 operation clean-up and said that the Jinnahpur map and the plan never existed and it was only an excuse to start the military operation againt the MQM.

Altaf Hussain's MQM can credited as the first political party in Pakistan that introduced a new trend in the political culture by giving it a non-feudal based political philosophy. It claims to be a political party of working towards the betterment of the poor and middle class population of Pakistan and boasts of sending poor and middle class people to the Parliament for the first time in history of the country.

On July 26, 1997, the party officially changed its name from Mohajir Qaumi Movement to Muttahida Qaumi Movement signifying it as a party for all in Pakistan.

Biography of Quaid e Tehreek Altaf Hussain

Quaid-e-Tehreek Altaf Hussain Bhai is the fonder and leader of Pakistan's third-largest Political party the Muttahida QaumiMovement better known as MQM. He was born on September 17, 1953 in the city of migrants, the port city of Karachi. Both hisparents, father Nazir Hussain and mother Khurshid Begum belonged to a religious family in Agra, a city known for one of the Wonders of the world 'The Taj Mahal'. His Grand-father Mufti Muhammed Ramzan was a Mufti of the city of Agra and his maternal grandfather Hafi Hafiz Rahim Buksh were also known amongst the prominent Religious families of the city.

After the creation of Pakistan on August 14, 1947, the parents of Quaid e Tehreek Altaf Hussain along with the whole familymigrated to the newly created State of Pakistan and settled down to a lower middle-class locality of Karachi known as Ibn-e-Sina line.Altaf Hussain’s father died on March 13, 1967 while his mother passed away on December 5, 1985.

As with most of he migrants at the time living in Karachi, Altaf Hussain's family too was living on meagre expenses so AltafHussain got his entire Primary and Secondary Education from Government Schools. Later, he went on to study at the IslamiaScience College in Karachi from where he Graguated and onwards at the Karachi University in the Department of Pharmacy wherehe earned his Bachelors Degree in Pharmacy.

Altaf Hussain’s elder brother Nasir Hussain was a government employee so when the government allotted him a quarter at Jahangir Road, they shifted to Jahangir Road quarters. The founder of MQM and his family shifted to house in Block 8 of Azizabad neighbourhood in Federal B Area in Karachi, the same house later became the head office of his Political party MQM, also knownby the house number Nine-Zero (90).

During early 1970s General Yahiya Khan introduce the new scheme of National Cadet Service Scheme for all Inter pass students where all Intermediate pass students would be able to join the Army and give their services to the Nation.Being a Patriotic Pakistan that he is, he immediately applied to play his role to defend his motherland. After clearing allthe tests required for eligibility he was recruited in the Army. His regiment name was 57 Balochistan Regiment and his soldier number was 2642671. In 1971, His regiment was shifted from Hyderabad to Karachi and then sent to the then East Pakistan via ships. Quaid e Tehreek prayed for martyrdom in the line of his duty to protect his motherland. During the interview for final selection of recruits he was asked where his were from, to which he replied they came fromAgra in India. Hearing this the officer conducting the interview disregarded him of being a Pakistani and branded him as a Mohajir(migrant)and an Indian who is unfaithful to Pakistan, Altaf bhai told the officer that he was born here and his parents came to Pakistan for the love of this Nation but to no avail, he was dropped by the selection officer.

As a young Student Altaf Bhai had a strong resentment against the injustice, descrimination and inequality that was faced by the migrants who came to Pakistan during the Indo-Pak partition, also known as 'Mohajirs'. He had immence hatred for the feudal system in the country and the fact that the top 2% of the country's rich and powerful and corrupt elite decided the fate of the remaining 98% of thePopulation. He had a firm belief that until and unless the common man is empowered and free, the institutions free from thecorrupt practices of the powerful elite, the nation would not progress and the common man would not get his fairshare in the country.

He started his Political career when he was still studying Pharmacy at the University ofKarachi where he formed the All Pakistan Mohajir Students Organization (APMSO) on June 11, 1978. Soon APMSO startedgaining popularity among the Urdu-Speaking students and Mohajirs and were able to win 92 seats in college elections in 1980.However, APMSO faced a strong opposition from Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba, student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami, and it was banned in 1981.
He founded the MQM in 1984 to represent Mohajirs, Muslims who emigrated from India in 1947 following Partition, and later campaigned for an end to feudalism and rights for the middle-class and the poor downtrodden masses of the Nation. APMSO was restructured as Mohajir Qaumi Movement on March 18, 1984 and on August 8, 1986.

On 21 December 1991, Quaid e Tehreek was attacked but he escaped injury. A warrant was issued for his arrest in connection with a murder. On 1 January 1992 he left Pakistan for London for medical treatment. During 1992 to 1993 Altaf Hussain's brothers and nephews were extrajudicially murdered. He sought political asylum in the United Kingdom, where he now lives in Mill Hill, North London as a UK citizen.
