Founder of MQM-London, Altaf Hussain has asked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to grant political asylum to him and his associates. Altaf made the request during a speech aired on social media from his London abode earlier this month. “[If granted asylum] I will not interfere in any politics, I promise,” assured Mr Hussain to the Indian government in a speech.
“If India and Prime Minister Modi allow me to come to India and provide me asylum with my colleagues, I am ready to come to India along with my colleagues because my grandfather is buried there … my grandmother is buried there … my thousands of relatives are buried in India. I want to go to their graves and want to pray,” he said in the video message broadcast on social media on Nov 9.
