Salman Ahmed speaks out against MQM


An open letter by Salman Ahmed, a famous Pakistani singer, to all Pakistanis

Altaf Hussain and his murdering accomplices deserve to be tried for their crimes against Pakistan. I’ve been threatened by them on many occasions in the past 15 years. One particular time was when I refused to perform at Altaf’s marriage function in Karachi and London where all the other artists, including Ali Azmat, were browbeaten to go and perform for his “Majesty’s” pleasure. The man who threatened me was called “Khalid bin Walid” who was a known terrorist and a murderer. He told me that Altaf Hussain, “his Quaid” had especially demanded me to appear with Junoon to perform at their ceremony function.

When I refused to comply he called up my staff and my sound company guy, Ishtiaq Ahmed,and threatened them with dire consequences if I didn’t go. Ishtiaq pleaded with me to go and perform or risk being killed,and all this OVER REFUSING TO PLAY AT A MARRIAGE FUNCTION!

As fate would have it,I’m still alive, but Mr. Walid was killed a few weeks later in a shootout in Karachi with Haqiqi activists.(Those who live by the sword die by the sword).

In 1992,they also threatened to abduct my wife and children if I didn’t show up at an MQM rally and welcome their leader Azim Tariq. I still live happily with respect and dignity but alas Azim Tariq was also was killed in a mob feud. My friends, Junaid Jamshed and Sajid Hassan worried for my safety told me that I’m putting my family at risk every time I refuse to obey these goons and on every occasion I told him that if I give into their terror tactics I can not call myself a Muslim.

Allah is our protector and He has commanded us to stand up against injustice and that is why I applaud Imran Khan for speaking the truth about Altaf Hussain and his goon squad. I think the time has come for all Pakistanis to stand up and be counted. Do you want to live as a citizen of a country with dignity and all your rights protected or as a slave in someone’s fiefdom?

“Baad-e-mukhalif sey na ghabra aye uqaab
yeh to chalti hai terey oonchi uraan kay liye”

(Don’t be afraid of flying against the wind, oh Falcon,
this wind only blows to help you fly higher)

Allah hu Akbar!

Salman Ahmad

    Twentieth century’s greatest wonders of the world is that people are still fooled on sectarian point, they never see what they have gained in last 35 years with the history of Altaf & MQM except murders , violence, shutter down strikes, burning buses etc. Karachi was center of intellectuals, libraries were filled with young people; and now where’s entire nation standing; unfortunately nowhere. Karachi inclining towards severe intellectual crisis, people with dependent mindset & entitlement mentality and overwhelming focused for Altaf & MQM is making their perspective narrow with lack of reasoned explanation and based over shallow conversation and damaged misconceptions.
    Before MQM, Urdu speaking people were regarded quite sensible and reasonable; great intellectuals, poets, philosophers, thinkers born here and even they were part of every field across Pakistan including Army & civil services; but since when Altaf started propaganda with the help of India there was sudden wave against Urdu speaking and they were rejected from everywhere due to this psychopath who split the entire nation. You can very well judge the mentality of person and his loyalty to Pakistan who was first imprisoned for burning the Pakistan’s flag during a a procession at Mazar e Quaid shouting slogans against Quaid e Azam & Pakistan.
    With his untiringly efforts now Urdu speaking people are no more in progress race, they are just left behind by this man; people are surviving on their own. What benefit MQM is giving to Urdu Speaking People except few who worship Altaf (NAAUZBILLA). Just have a glance over this poor nation they are nowhere, they by their own choice become the fuel of killings and terrorism, forced Bhatta, murders, kidnapping, ransoms. Who is inflicted most with all these crimes???? Just Urdu Speaking. They select this MQM and now they are facing its music in the shape of killings of their own brothers, Bhatta, kidnapping, snatching and looting. Wake-up people and raise against MQM infidelity that they made against Urdu Speaking people.
    Altaf destroyed this nation’s future and people are still running after him, this mafia MQM bilaterally agreed to extend the quota system for next 60 years so no Urdu speaking could get a better & higher civil jobs in elite ministers or could serve Pakistan. This is the sincerity of Altaf & MQM to his nation, well-done and congrats and my heartiest appreciation to all those who still loves Altaf & MQM. This nation was born slave and remained slave and its future generation will ever be slave. Nothing will be change, people will remain like this, they love to live in their magic cocoon, so their every child could be sacrificed on Altaf & MQM. Here no one accepts the things for the betterment of society or nation, we just think as Sindhi, Punjabi, Mahajar, Baloch or Pathan but never as Pakistani.
