he chief of the political party, Muttahida Qaumi Movemennt (MQM), Altaf Hussain, recently came out in the open and stated that the Pakistani army should take over the country once again. Pakistan is famous for holding a military coup and the last time it took place was during the time Nawaz Sharif was the Prime Minister. It was General (Retd) Pervez Musharraf who took over the country back then and ruled it for quite a lot of time.
However, this time Altaf Hussain claims that Pakistan needs to be saved as a country and not as a democracy. Therefore, a military leader will be a better option for the country as compared to the current Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mohammad Nawaz Sharif.
Several politicians have spoken against whatever Altaf Hussain has said and the Jamat E Islami chief, Munawar Hassan, is the most recent addition to the list of people who have said something against the MQM chief.
Munawar Hassan has asked Altaf Hussain to withdraw his statement which relates to the military takeover in the country.
He also claimed that the army is a strong institution and he really hopes that they do not pay much heed to what Altaf Hussain recently said.
