It is absurd to think that I will fall to MQM’s level and lead them

Dubai (Monitoring Desk): Former President of Pakistan General retired Pervaiz Musharraf has said that it is absurd to that I will fall to MQM’s level and lead them.

Ever since, Musharraf had shown support for the alliance between MQM-P and PSP, which lead to reports suggested that the former president hopes to head the alliance. Clarifying the rumours, he remarked that there are no plans of a “takeover”.

“No one called me or invited and I haven’t even thought of becoming an in-charge,” he said.

He also called the alliance between PSP and MQM as “non-starter” and “unnatural”, adding that this is why the alliance almost ended a day later. “However, the idea behind the alliance is great.”

The Muhajir community must come together. All the different ethnicities residing in Karachi including Bengali, Bihari, Ounjab, Pathan, Sindhi, Baloch and Gujrati need a single leadership.”

Slamming MQM, he said that “MQM has acquired a real bad reputation.” A new political force is needed, he said.

We also need to remove the term ‘Muhajir’ from politics. “Muhajirs are those who have worked the most for the country, given the most sacrifices and are still giving.”

But the need of the hour is uniting under the name of Pakistan.
