MQM for `referendum` after Osama killing
Karachi: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) is seeking the opinion of Pakistanis regarding the country`s sovereign status following the killing of Osama bin Laden.
MQM leader Anis Qaimkhani said Pakistan faced a critical situation and questions had been raised about the country`s security and sovereignty due to the unilateral US assault May 02 on Osama`s hideout in Abbottabad.
"There never was as much the need for national solidarity as it is today," Dawn quoted Qaimkhani as saying.
He said MQM chief Altaf Hussain, who is based in London, announced a public "referendum" so as to steer the country out of the present crisis.
He said a 17-point questionnaire had been prepared. The "referendum" began on Wednesday and would continue for a week.
