PML-N, MQM tear each other apart with no-holds barred remarks

Pervez Musharraf Islamabad, Dec 30 (ANI): The war of words between the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has intensified with leaders of both parties launching personal attacks against each other.

Sitting on different talk shows on private TV channels and talking to reporters outside the Parliament House, leaders of both parties did not even refrain from using abusive language and profanities against each other, besides hurling threats of serious consequences, the Daily Times reports.

PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar said the MQM was a party of “dacoits”, adding that a person who was sitting abroad for the past 19 years could not bring a revolution in the country. If MQM chief Altaf Hussain was sincere with Pakistan, he should return to the country, he added.

Separately, commenting on Nisar’s remarks, MQM’s Haider Abbas Rizvi said the PML-N was the first to make personal attacks on the MQM leadership.

He also referred to Nisar as “Mr Bean”, and said the PML-N leaders would not find a place to stand in the country if a “Pandora’s box was opened”.

Rizvi claimed the PML-N leaders used to meet with generals in the dark of night, adding that the PML-N chief was General Jilani’s production, General Zia’s follower and grateful to General Pervez Musharraf.

MQM’s Waseem Akhtar remarked that Nisar was bald and had put on a wig, while PML-N leaders- Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif- both got hair transplants during their forced stay in England, and it seemed they wanted to have “some romantic affairs”.

He further said the PML-N leadership had done nothing for the people of Lahore, and that the people would beat them with shoes. The MQM leaders also accused the Sharifs of having “weird likes”, as at a women’s convention, Nawaz had compared himself to Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and his wife to Mumtaz Mahal.

They even went to the extent of saying that Nawaz’s daughter had left the house to force the family to get her married to her father’s ADC, and threatened that both Sharifs would not be allowed to come to Karachi in future unless they apologised for the indecent language against the MQM chief. Earlier, Chaudhry Nisar, while talking to reporters outside the Parliament House, had accused Altaf Hussain of undergoing treatment for a mysterious “manly disease” in London, and said if the MQM did not stop using indecent language against the Sharifs, his party would make public the records of that rehab centre. Nisar even asked Altaf to apologise to the nation for all his political, financial and moral ills. He questioned how the Sharif brothers had made property worth millions and become owners of 25 factories, and which medical treatment Shahbaz received from London, adding that sex stimulants were recovered from Nawaz’s secretariat when Musharraf took over.
