19TH JUNE IS A BLACK DAY IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY: ALTAF HUSSAIN

Message on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the 19th June 1992 martyrs

Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has paid rich tributes to the martyrs of the 19th June 1992 and said that a movement that has been strengthened by the blood of the loyal and determined workers cannot be prevented from succeeding by any worldly power.

In a message on the occasion of the anniversary being held to commemorate the memory of the martyrs of the 19th June 1992, Mr Hussain said that that the elements that had hatched conspiracies to wipe out the MQM had themselves been uprooted and spurned and they had failed to pull away workers and the general public from the mission and the philosophy of the MQM.

Mr Hussain said that the 19th June was a black day in the history of the country and it could not be forgotten. A ferocious state operation was started against the MQM and its offices were forcefully seized. Thousands of the MQM workers and supporters were mercilessly put to death during the operation and a large number of workers were physically disabled by inflicting barbaric physical torture. Many more had to leave their homes and go abroad in order to avoid ruthless persecution.

Mr Hussain warned that the MQM could not be eliminated howsoever the elements conspiring against the MQM may try. The roots of the MQM have spread across the country and it was only because of the immortal sacrifices offered by the martyrs.
