MQM chief Altaf slams US for allegations against Pak.

Islamabad, Sept 25 (ANI): Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has strongly condemned the allegations made by Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States (US) Admiral Mike Mullen against Pakistan, the armed forces of Pakistan and the Inter-Services Intelligence Agency (ISI).

Insisting that a large province of the country was in the grip of the dengue virus epidemic, while floods had devastated Sindh province, Altaf said that Washington should have sympathized rather than blaming Pakistan.

Stressing that terrorists were carrying out bomb attacks in different parts of the country one after other, killing innocent people, he said: "The US and its high-ranking officials should have sympathised with Pakistan instead of giving such negative statements that undermined the highly sensitive institutions of the country and also hurt the feelings of every Pakistani."

He said the Obama administration and the heads of the US armed forces must never forget that Pakistan had not only played the role of the frontline state in the war against terror, but the armed forces of Pakistan had also sacrificed its officers and men in combating terrorism.

He said that the role played by the ISI along with the intelligence agencies of the US in arresting top targets of Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organisations was greatly commendable. He condemned the US for its alleged unjust blame against the ISI. (ANI)
