Judiciary, military establishment & ECP should stand neutral, upholding their constitutional duty: Sirajul Haq Says the country could not move forward if the institutions would pose as party


Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has said the judiciary, military establishment and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should stand neutral, upholding their constitutional duty.

The country could not move forward if the institutions would pose as party, Sirajul Haq said while talking to media at Mansoorah on Monday.

The military establishment provided support to the PDM and the PPP to come to power just like it had supported the PTI regime, he said, adding a former army chief openly admitted the institution’s role to bring the Tehreek-e-Insaf to power.

Sirajul Haq said the people should be given right to elect their representatives as the free and fair national polls were the solution to the prevailing crises.

He said the PTI, the PML-N and the PPP should talk about their performance instead of making hollow slogans. The fight for self-interest among the three created huge loss, he said, adding the troika was fully responsible to the destruction of economy, poverty, lawlessness and inflation. The leaders of the ruling parties accumulated wealth and made their offshore companies while staying in power as public welfare was never their agenda.

He expressed concern over the clear divide in the top court, saying the political parties made every institution controversial. He said the military establishment must seek apology from the nation for its interference into politics and should stay away from the power game in future.

Sirajul Haq said the JI was not the opponent of the US people but it was against the world order which Washington was willing to impose on the Muslim world and especially on Pakistan. He said the Ummah would never accept any world order as it had its own order in the form of Quran and Sunnah. The JI, he said, was struggling to impose the order of Quran and its entire politics revolved around the objective to transform the country into Islamic welfare state.
