Afghans are our brothers, we have sympathy for them: Altaf Hussain

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain says Afghans are our brothers and we have sympathies for them.

Hussain was speaking with Afghan journalists and a Pashtun delegation via telephone from London.

The MQM chief said that his party wants peace and prosperity in Afghanistan. He said that MQM is against any racial and linguistic discrimination.

Hussain said that they [MQM members] believe that every nation should be respected and given equal rights.

He also said that friendship and brotherhood between Pakistan and Afghans is a fact and that the MQM is trying to build brotherhood among the Pashtuns and the Urdu-speaking people.

Earlier, the United Nations refugee agency reported that the number of Afghan refugees returning home has dropped substantially this year, with some 60,000 repatriating in the first 10 months compared to more than 100,000 over the same period in 2010.
