KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain appealed to the people of Pakistan belonging to different schools of thoughts to refrain from offering prayers behind the ulema who do not condemn the attack upon daughter of the nation Malala Yousufzai by the Taliban terrorists.

He advised them to offer prayers in the mosques where the ulema were condemning the brutal attack, said a statement issued by the MQM here on Friday.

Altaf Hussain also appealed to the ulema belonging to different schools of thought to denounce the attack on Malala Yousufzai and other girls students in their prayers.

He asked them to offer special prayers for the well-being and health of Malala and other students who were injured in the attack.

Altaf Hussain praised the ulema belonging to Muttahida Bainul Muslimeen Forum and other ulema for showing courage in condemning the incident.

He asked them to get united for saving the country.

Earlier today, the MQM chief  urged all office bearers, party workers and peace loving citizens of Karachi and the country to submit within a week the details of all muftis and ulemas (clerics) in their localities, regardless of their sectarian affiliations, with the party’s unit and sector offices situated in their respective areas.

Earlier on Thursday, Hussain gave 24 hours ultimatum to all top muftis and ulema (clerics) of the country to openly denounce the cowardly attack on young Pakistani children’s rights activist Malala Yousafzai or else he will ‘expose’ them.
