[The people of Pakistan, ALL OF THEM, are confronted with a choice which they must make--Will Pakistan be ruled by the animals who take pride in the murder of children, throwing acid in little girls' faces and the burning of their schools, or will they join hands with the rest of the human race? Altaf Hussain said "the attack on Malala as an attack on all humanity." He is absolutely correct. If Pakistanis do not join hands in a national crusade for their children, then they will be handing them over to the animals who think themselves to be modern-day Prophets of God. Any Muslim man, who has been faithful to the real word of the Quran and not just selected quotes taken out of context, could easily refute all of the pious-sounding words of the ignorant Taliban as they murder and maim the innocent in favor of serving a false "shariah." They could do that, if they weren't afraid to defend themselves, their families and the word of God itself against the criminal gangs who roam the countryside, calling themselves "mujahedeen."]
KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Friday urged all office bearers, party workers and peace loving citizens of Karachi and the country to submit within a week the details of all muftis and ulemas (clerics) in their localities, regardless of their sectarian affiliations, with the party’s unit and sector offices situated in their respective areas, DawnNews reported.
The MQM chief said that the particulars of all religious leaders holding different positions and titles such as mufti, imam, aalim and khatib would then be collected from the units and sectors at the zonal level from where they would be immediately consolidated at the MQM headquarter Nine Zero in Karachi.
He further instructed all sector and unit office bearers to note down the names and addresses of all those who refuse to share their particulars so that the list of their names could be sent to the government which could then itself obtain the details. The MQM chief said the measure would benefit the country and its innocent citizens.
Earlier on Thursday, Altaf Hussain had given a 24-hour-long ultimatum to all top muftis and ulema (clerics) of the country to openly denounce the cowardly attack on Pakistani child activist Malala Yousufzai and vowed to expose all those who failed to condemn the attack by banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday gave 24 hours ultimatum to all top muftis and ulema (clerics) of the country to openly denounce the cowardly attack on young Pakistani children’s rights activist Malala Yousafzai or else he will ‘expose’ them, DawnNews reported.
In a statement, issued by the party, Hussain vowed to expose all clerics, who will fail to condemn the attack by banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), in his scheduled speech at the party’s workers convention on Sunday.
The MQM chief had declared the attack on Malala as an attack on all humanity and said that perpetrators of the vile act should be swiftly brought to justice.
The TTP had taken responsibility for attacking the national peace award winner on the same day.
The Taliban, who have killed thousands of people across Pakistan in the last five years and destroyed hundreds of girls’ schools, have issued a statement saying that any female who opposes them should be killed.
