Muttahida Qaumi Movement Chief Altaf Hussain struck the Founding Father of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, with a Shameless Drone and claimed that the Founding Father of Pakistan actually had a British Passport and was an agent British Monarch, King George VI.
Addressing a Party Convention, the Mutahida Qaumi Movement Chief said that the Quaid-e-Azam had confessed and vowed to remain loyal to the Monarch of England while taking oath as the First Governor General of Pakistan. Altaf added that following Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Second and Third Governor Generals of Pakistan also took the same oath.
Altaf said the Quaid-e-Azam took the oath as a "Legal Compulsion" as it was the only available legal way to take oath. He raised the point that under the same "Legal Compulsion", a Pakistani Citizen adopts Dual Nationality in another country while seeking asylum.
The MQM Chief said that if "Legal Compulsion" never cast doubts on the patriotism or loyalty of Jinnah to Pakistan, how could the loyalty of those be doubted who adopted Dual Nationality and took oaths for citizenship while seeking asylum.
Altaf further claimed that Pakistan itself was not completely independent after the partition and remained under the rule of British Monarch until 1956.
"It (Pakistan) was running under the Kingdom of King George VI until 1952 and later under Queen Elizabeth until 1956. Monarch’s rule was ended in Pakistan on 23rd March 1956" Altaf said.
Therefore, all Pakistanis were in fact British Citizens before 23rd March 1956, Altaf concluded.
As usual, Altaf Hussain distorted facts and history, and wrongly mentioned Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah's "British Indian Passport" as "British Passport", in fact, Jinnah's Passport clearly declared him a "British Subject by Birth", and not "British National".
Furthermore, Altaf Hussain did not mention Pakistan Citizen Act 1951, which became applicable on 13th April 1951 and defines laws and regulation related to the Citizenship of Pakistan.
