KARACHI: Famous television figure Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain claims he is getting death threats, and that MQM founder Altaf Hussain would be responsible if any harm comes to him.
“I am being told I am a bigger traitor than even Mustafa Kamal, and that I will be killed in a more painful manner than Kamal,” he said.
He said he was getting the death threats from unknown numbers.
“I just want to clarify that if I am killed, don’t let them label me as a worker of the MQM. If I am killed, bury me wrapped in the Pakistan flag, because I am not affiliated with them.”
When asked, he said MQM London and Altaf Hussain would be responsible if any harm comes to him.
The former MQM leader’s statement comes days after controversial anti-Pakistan speech by Altaf Hussain led to violent protests in Karachi and MQM workers and supporters storming the offices of television channels in Karachi.
