Founder of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Altaf Hussain in a recent address has said that revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir is India’s internal issue.
But what came out as a surprise, rather shock, during the event was that Hussain sang, ‘Saare jahan se achchha, Hindustan hamara,’ during the address.

A statement quoted the founder of MQM as saying, “Hussain said that the revocation of Article 370 by the Indian government was absolutely an internal matter of India and the government of India took this decision with the overwhelming support of the people of India.”
The statement further read, “Pakistan invaded Jammu and Kashmir and for that purpose used people of the tribal belt of Pakistan, arming them to attack and free J&K. Following this, the Maharaja of J&K approached India for help, consenting to merge the princely state with India.
“Pakistan misuses Kashmiris and drives them to a corner where they have no choice except to hoist Pakistani flag and chant slogans for making J&K party of Pakistan,” he added.
While talking about the minorities of Pakistan, Hussain said, “Pakistan’s military butchered unarmed and defenseless innocent Mohajirs, Balochs, Pashtuns, Sindhis, Hazarwalls, Gilgitis and other oppressed nations facing serious oppression in Pakistan.”
“There is no democracy in Pakistan but straight stratocracy which means the rule of the military by the Generals. Pakistan’s entire system has evolved in an entirely different style where the ISI is the most powerful institution of the country. Then comes the Chief of Army Staff — COAS — and then comes the poor Prime Minister. All institutions of the country including the civil, military establishment and judiciary work under the nose and as per the dictation of the ISI. Parliament, President, Prime Minister, and entire political and administrative set-up is nothing but a sheer rubber stamp under the control of the military and the ISI,” he said.
“The extension in service of General Qamar Javed Bajwa is unlawful, unconstitutional and against the established norms and values. On this, the people of the country have been duped again as a lame excuse has been made that since the country’s security was heavily jeopardised, so the decision made to extend his services for next three years. Are other Generals incapable of leading the army.”
