A day after Pakistan leader & founder of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) party, Altaf Hussain appealed to India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for asylum, he spoke to Republic Media Network's Editor in chief Arnab Goswami exposing Pakistan's atrocity. Speaking about why he was compelled to leave his own country and the nexus of military with politicians in Pakistan, he said that army had hired people to assassinate him. 

"Do you want me to get assassinated by Pakistani military establishment or ISI? I have been struggling for 27 years now. Pakistan is a suppressed nation. I came to London when several assassination attempts were made on my life. But for the first time, suicidal bombing was carried out to assassinate me. They were hired killers of ISI. After that, the central coordination members, my followers requested me that we can come in front of bullets but we cannot come in front of the bombing. Now the time has come, they said,  we request you to leave Pakistan, guide us from London. I came to London because of the request of millions of my followers," Altaf Hussain said speaking to Republic TV.

"If India today, and Prime Minister Modi, allow me to come to India and provided 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 there, in India. I want to go there, to their graves. I want to pray," said Hussain.
