ISLAMABAD: Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Siraj-ul-Haq, has called upon supporters of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) to disassociate themselves from anti-army remarks of their leader Altaf Hussain.

The London-based MQM supremo made objectionable remarks on Saturday against the armed forces and called for deployment of the UN and the NATO troops in Karachi.

“Altaf Hussain is a confused person who is in depression. He has put even his own workers in trouble through his recent remarks. They must clarify their position and disown his speech that is dangerous for the country and its future,” the JI chief said.

He was speaking to media persons after meeting Chief Election Commissioner (CEC), Justice Sardar Raza in Islamabad. Seeking an end to hereditary politics in Pakistan, Siraj-ul-Haq chief called upon Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to oversee intra-party elections of political parties in future.
