Altaf Hussain : Apotheosis to a Pir – Picture from the Archives

Those expecting that Quaid e Tehreek Pir Altaf Hussain will be arrested are in for a rude surprise. In Ardeshir Cowasjee‘s words, he is the Pir of Edgware.

Not many remember but two events described Quaid e Tehreek’s apotheosis to Pir level.

One was his impression appearing on a leaf. Unfortunately could not find its picture.

The other was when he was on hunger strike, birds were released from a cage for his well being. Instead of flying away to freedom, they closed in on him and perched on his bed thus establishing his status as a Pir and shutting the mouth of naysayers.

I have been sharing these pics and history on my facebook page. What I have noticed that they are shared which I don’t object to. However, the satirists and cartoonists that are dime a dozen on facebook take them up, make memes of them and spread them without giving an credit.

I shared the above history and pic on my facebook page 3 days ago. Yet yesterday, a self proclaimed satirist tweets the below tweet without giving any due credit. Such a shame.
