Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain has said his party would continue to support the present government for the cause of democracy in the country.


The MQM chief phoned President Asif Ali Zardari and the two leaders discussed the current situation in the country. He congratulated the President for pursuing the policy of reconciliation which, he said, had resulted in the formation of coalition democratic government which is approaching the successful completion of its constitutionally mandated term.


In return, President Zardari offered thanks to Altaf Hussain for reiterating support to the government saying that the government also welcomed and looked forward to the continued support of MQM on all important national issues.


It may be mentioned here that the Supreme Court has recently served a contempt notice to Altaf Hussain ordering him to appear before the court on January 7 following the latter’s statement against judges during his telephonic address to a public meeting.


In the meantime, MQM leader Dr. Farooq Sattar announced that all of his party leaders and the people of Karachi will appear before the court on January 7, for hearing of contempt of court notice issued against Altaf Hussain.


He said a census should be conducted prior to the new delimitation of constituencies in Karachi. He also stated that if the census was conducted prior to delimitation of constituencies his party would cooperate in the process.


He noted, “Verifying the voters list is also a responsibility of the Election Commission of Pakistan and it is a must to hold census before new electoral delimitation in Karachi. A census will provide people their rights,” Sattar added.


He vowed on the occasion that the MQM is ready to render every sacrifice for the integrity of Pakistan.
