Lahore, Apr.3 (ANI): Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain is reportedly seriously ill and undergoing treatment in Germany.
Hussain's suspicious absence from Pakistan's political scene amidst the recent chaos over the 18th Constitutional Amendment bill has raised questions over his well being.
The MQM's silence over the party chief's whereabouts has only added fuel to rumours.
When asked about the issue, MQM spokesperson, Salahuddin, neither confirmed nor denied reports regarding Hussain being ill.
The spokesman said that Hussain had addressed the party on March 16 and was in good health at the time, The Daily Times reports.
According to sources, former Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President Shujaat Hussain had recommended a homeopathic doctor in Germany to Hussain.
The MQM chief also did not meet President Asif Ali Zardari during his recent trip to London, and sources said that Hussain has been under medical treatment since that time. (ANI)
