London: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech delivered at United Nations General Asssembly (UNGA) in New York.
Hussain termed Modi’s speech as a reflection of his determination and dedication towards the people of India. He compared the speeches of Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan.
“This is the difference between an ‘elected’ and a ‘selected’ Prime Minister; one who is backed by the people of his country while the Pakistani military has put weight behind Imran Khan.”
“The popularity of Prime Minister Modi was visible when he was twining hand-in-hand with US President Donald Trump. I am amazed to see their friendship,” he added.
Hussain severely criticised Pakistan over the pressing issue of minority atrocities in the country.
“Why will people laud Imran Khan? What has he done for his country? The Pakistani military establishment has abducted hundreds of Baloch men and women from Balochistan. They are putting thousands of Mohajrs and Pashtuns into torture cells. The Prime Minister should look first into what is happening with the people of his country. Why is there a discrimination among the people of the same country.”
Hussain is under detention in London. He is barred from addressing crowds for fear of instigating them and he is bound to stay at the designated address under curfew conditions from morning to evening.
