LAHORE ( Web News )
Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has made it clear that the JI instead of being part of any political circus will continue its struggle for the right of the people of Pakistan.
There is no difference between the agenda of the ruling coalition and the main opposition parties, Sirajul Haq said while delivering Friday speech at Mansoorah’s central mosque.
He earlier presided over the meeting of JI Central Executive Council (Majlse Aamla). The meeting discussed the prevailing political situation, local bodies and general elections, the JI sit-in movement and the organizational matters.
Sirajul Haq said the leaders of the opposition parties and from government side approached him for support during last few days. During the meeting with them it was visible they had no interest to eliminate interest-based economy and give the country Islamic system, he said. The ruling elite, he said, was united to keep the country under US influence and their fight was only to protect self-interests. They were the loyal to western masters instead of Islam on whose basis the country got independence, he added. Pakistan was kept deprived of the Islamic system under a conspiracy and the present and past rulers were part of the plot, he said. “The JI has chosen the path of Islam and its struggle revolves around making Pakistan an Islamic welfare state.”
Sirajul Haq expressed concern over use of foul language by the leaders of political parties and their workers amid the ongoing political crisis. There was an open exchange of abuses and threats on social media and public rallies of political parties, he said, fearing the situation could further weaken the already fragile democracy in the country. The prime minister, he said, had again taken the container, adding to the political instability.
The JI Emir condemned the police torture on the members of National Assembly and Senate in the parliament lodges. He said the use of institutions for political gains was unacceptable in any democracy. He said the government action reflected it lost senses. He requested the people reject the status quo forces and chose the JI to put the country on track.
