BBC Two’s Newsnight documentary on Altaf Hussain
Lot of news and speculation are going around in Pakistan and United Kingdom (UK) regarding Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) leader and founder Altaf Hussain since past few weeks. He was interrogated by UK Police earlier this month in connection of Imran Farooq murder and allegations of money laundering & enticing violence. Earlier, raids were also conducted by London Metropolitan Police and Scotland Yard on two properties, one of which is owned by Altaf Hussain. Now BBC Two’s program Newsnight report on Altaf Hussian has created another stir in the whole situation.
Yesterday, Owen Bennett-Jones reported a story (documentary) for BBC Two’s program Newsnight. The program showed clippings of Altaf Hussain telephonic address where he was shown threatening and enticing violence. Dr. Farooq Sattar was invited by BBC as a spokesperson of MQM . Altaf Hussain’s clips were shown to him. But he was unable to give satisfactory answers to BBC anchor. MQM leaders back at home has rejected BBC Two’s Newsnight report and labeled it as smear campaign against MQM and its leader. But this report shows the Altaf Hussain and MQM’s impression forming in UK. And it would be fair to say that coming days would be really tough for MQM and its leadership.
