Pak. Army, ISI pushing Sindh towards civil war: Altaf Hussain


Pakistan’s Army and spy agency ISI are pushing Sindh province towards a civil war, the head of the country’s fourth largest party has alleged, and sought the intervention of the UN and the international community.

In a audio message, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain alleged that the Army and ISI had “virtually taken control” of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and all of Balochistan. “They have killed hundreds and thousands of innocent Mohajir Balochs and Pashtoons who raised their voice against Punjabi army,” the London-based politician said.

“Now the the world community is realising that Pakistani intelligence agency, ISI has been harbouring the most wanted terrorists, including Osama bin Laden, Mullah Omer and Mullah Akhter Mansoor in Pakistan,” he said.

He asked “the UN Secretary General and the international community to intervene and use their offices to stop the bloodshed of Mohajirs, Balochs and Pashtoons”. Mr. Hussain said the Army and ISI were pushing Karachi, Hyderabad and other urban centres in Sindh towards a civil war.
