Thanks for sharing information from wikipedia (The authenticity of Wikipedia alone can be questioned). But i do disagree that Altaf Hussain is the Liberator of Urdu speaking people in Pakistan. He used to work in Chicago and he was introduced in 1980's by a Army General Zia-ul-Haq (a Urdu Speaking President).

I dont know why the Urdu speaking Community take themselves as aliented as they find jobs all over the Pakistan and even taking jobs from the local community in certain regions. The Biggest examples can be seen in Balouchistan and NWFP where the Urdu Speaking communties Migrate and take the Jobs from the Locals.

Now how they do it, I can explain it in detail but Majority of Pakistani's want a freedom with justice and security as every american wants the same. So tagging only Urdu speaking people as the Moderate Muslims is not right at all. If you go from Karachi to Peshawar u will find different ethnicties having the same thoughts. But how i see the world in their eyes they want a peaceful enviroment where their kids go to school and get education, good healthcare system just like the other Developed nations and a security system where everyone is equal (Noone above the law=which they dont have it and those who work of Army or Ministries and who are rich buy the law).

Now with the time everything is changing, and i hope the change makes the Pakistani Society a better socitey where people live with peace and harmony but it does need other forgein and develop nations to bring those people to justice who did corruption and other terrorists activities in Pakistan and fled. Developed nations should also start supporting people power if today these Nations support People instead of the army then everything will even change over night and its fruits will be long lasting which will work for decades not just for few years. I think i wrote too much:P but i feel Mr.Altaf Hussain should come back and present himself in the court of law if he is clean he will be released if he is not then UK or anyother country should not give asylum to people who are responsible for killing of other innocent people.
