The founder of #Pakistan’s major political party, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain (@AltafHussain_90) on Thursday accused the #DonaldTrump administration of shielding #Pakistan’s Army which has occupied three provinces of the country using brutal repression.
The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain on Thursday asked US President Donald Trump to stop military assistance to Pakistan in order to end misery of minorities in Sindh, Baluchistan, Pakhtunkhwaa and Gilgit-Baltistan. He accused the US administration of shielding Pakistan’s Army which has occupied three provinces of the country using brutal repression.
In a statement, Hussain said: “With political and financial support of the US, Pakistan has occupied militarily three provinces of the country — Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwaa — besides the Gilgit-Baltistan region, and their barbaric and brutal repression is still going on.”
Hussain, a staunch critic of Pakistan government and its army, said the decision makers of the past and the present US administration have persistently failed to understand the sufferings of people of Pakistan. For one reason or other, the successive US governments have supported Pakistani despotic regimes. According to him, the US has always ignored the fact that Pakistani authoritarian regimes are the most brutal and racist in the world. “This is a known fact that Pakistan Army is the creator of Al-Qaeda, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and hundreds of other jihadi outfits where thousands of religious fanatics and terrorists are being trained as strategic assets of ISI,” he said.
Hussain said Pakistan’s military and its intelligence agencies under the camouflage of so-called democratic civilian government is one of the most repressive in the world. “Despite all these realities the US administration and other international financial institutions including World Bank and IMF are the main financial supporters of Pakistan which is also known as epicentre of all sorts of terrorism,” he added.
