On 22nd August, 2010, MQM chief Altaf Hussain in his telephonic address from London said his party would support steps like martial law if taken against “corrupt feudals and landlord politicians”.

He urged “patriotic Generals to initiate martial law-like steps against feudal politicians and former generals who disgraced the army institution during the Soviet-Afghan war”, adding that the country was in desperate need of a change much like the French Revolution, and by stirring such a revolution, the MQM would cause consternation for the influentials, landlords and capitalists.

At the time when Pakistan is facing such a worst ever flood in the history, these statments of MQM chief Altaf Hussain has opened a new horizon of discussion between all political parties. Every political party didn`t endorse his view point but somehow PTI Chief Imran Khan too welcome the same methodology that only for the purpose of maintaining stability in Pakistan, Pak Army should be indulged into Pakistan`s Politics.
