Altaf slams drone attack

The founder and leader of MQM Altaf Hussain has condemned the drone attack on a Madrassa in Tal area of Hangu. He said Sartaj Aziz, advisor on foreign affairs, assured the nation that America had promised not to carry out drone attacks during negotiations. However, it is deplorable that this attack was carried out within few hours after he gave his statement.

This attack indicates that the government is hiding real facts from the nation. In a press release issued here on Thursday, Hussain said the nation was already disturbed because of problems and crisis. "In this situation it was the responsibility of the government to tell facts to the nation instead of talking in riddles. It is a sensitive matter and our security and integrity depends on the issue."
