Pakistan Army terms Altaf's speech ‘disgusting’
RAWALPINDI (Web Desk) - The Pakistan Army has termed Altaf Hussain’s statement against it as disgusting and uncalled for and warned that such remarks won’t be tolerated,ISPR said in a statement on Friday.

Reacting over MQM chief Altaf Hussain’s speech to his party workers, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asim Bajwa said “Such reference to Army or its leadership as reaction to arrest of criminals, who may have links with any political party,won't be tolerated”.

The media wing of the army made it clear that the armed forces and the law enforcement agencies will continue to execute operations assigned to them.

Earlier, speaking to party workers Altaf Hussain said: “We are called RAW agents every other day. Those who surrendered are called patriots, while the founders of Pakistan are dubbed traitors.”

Hussain's remarks came hours after a senior Karachi Police Officer Rao Anwar called for a ban against the MQM for its alleged links with the Indian secret agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
