Re: MQM leader Altaf Hussain: Live Broadcast from London on 2nd August 2011. GEO TV Sky 825 and ARY News Sky 806 and via telephone/mobile phone:
I am writing to bring your attention to the above mentioned matter. Altaf Hussain is a self exiled leader of MQM from Pakistan. He is been granted British Citizenship. He has been making speeches and inciting people for violence in Karachi resulted in deaths and destructions of thousands of people. He has on the record asked people to sell their jewellery, TV, Videos and buy weapons. More recently in a similar kind of provocative and inciting speech/statement on 2nd August 2011, he called on the people of Karachi to buy ‘one month ration’, which provoked panic keeping in view the violent history of MQM. British Foreign office Minister Alistair Burt issued a warning as a result of his provocative speech/statement. The News article a sister paper of GEO TV
Since 1992 Mr Hussain has been making provocative and inciting speeches by phone as well live TV broadcast. As a result of this phone and TV broadcasts I and my family get distress, worried and upset. He sends coded messages to the target killers via these broadcasts. According to reports, Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza, former and Home Minister of Sindh in his 25th, August 2011. Press Conference has said that the majority of ‘target killers’ are from MQM-A and have confessed that they received orders from London ie Altaf Hussain.
- I would like Ofcom to kindly investigate these GEO and ARY News channels as well as phone companies, in this regard.
- These TV channels should not allow to broadcast/report Mr.Hussain’s inciteing speeches and statement. The Telephone companies should also not allow him to address and incite his followers to attack and kill innocent people who do not agree with the policies of MQM Altaf Group. I hope to hear from you soon.
