KARACHI: The founder and leader of MQM, Altaf Hussain has said that there is no substitute for mother. He said that mothers are great because they raise a generation not an individual. “A mother has an honourable and dignified position in a society. A mother’s lap is regarded as the first school of a child,” he said.
“My brave mother Mohtarma Khursheed Begum taught me to be honest and truthful. This helped me to face adversities and hardship during my struggle against injustices. What I am today is the result of excellent education and training imparted by my mother,” Hussain said.
Hussain appealed to me young men, children and students to love and respect their mothers. He added that they can fulfil their ambitions and achieve their goals by respecting their mothers.
