KARACHI: The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain said on Sunday that his philosophy of realism and practicalism is a criterion on which every ideology and manifesto could be validated.
This philosophy not only indicates the evils plaguing a system and social maladies but also points out practical steps needed for remedying the problems, he said while giving a lecture to the Coordination Committee in Pakistan and London and different departments of the party on the topic of realism and practicalism.
Hussain said, “Realism is recognising the public issues, problems in the system and social evils as they exist while Practicalism is making practical efforts for solving these problems and eliminating the social evils present in the society.”
“We often talk about the problems in the system of the country, deplorable condition of poor people, and the differences and discords in the society but we do not make any efforts to solve the problems and eliminate these evils,” he said.
The MQM chief said; “Problems cannot be solved by taking recourse to realism alone as realism is useless without the aid of Practicalism. “It is realism which says that the feudal system and concentration of power at the centre are responsible for the deplorable circumstances of the poor people and other social maladies while practicalism demands that this outdated system should be uprooted in order to make a permanent cure.”
