Panama leaks case
Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq expressed his hope that the Supreme Court‘s decision on Panama Leaks issue would be in favour of the people of Pakistan.
Speaking at a public rally in the rest house ground, he claimed that after the decision a number of people will be behind bars, adding that in case if the decision is not as per the expectation of people, then consequently fate of the country will be decided by people on the streets.
The JI chief alleged that Malakand Division and other tribal areas are being deprived of revenues and opportunities in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor plan.
‘Malakand Division should be taken as an alternative route for the CPEC,’ he said. ‘The people of Malakand need factories and businesses, children here want education – government should fulfill their legitimate demands.’
Sirajul Haq stated that in view of broad alliance of religious parties, he has visited Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief Maulana Fazalur Rehman. ‘We will soon go for a massive sit-in against interest- based system in Islamabad,’ Siraj warned.
Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) head Sirajul Haq earlier said the decision of the Supreme Court (SC) in the Panama Papers case would expose the corrupt. ‘We are hopeful that the decision will come against the thieves and the corrupt,’ he said while addressing a gathering here.
A large number of JI activists attended the event. A large numbers of workers of other political parties announced joining the JI on the occasion. JI provincial head Mushtaq Ahmad, district head Dr Attaur Rehman and others also addressed the public meeting. Sirajul Haq said the government had failed to provide relief to the masses and steer the country out of the prevailing crises.
He added the government was unable to root out corruption and provide jobs to the unemployed youth. The JI leader said that his party would establish Sharia law in the country if voted to power. Sirajul Haq said his party would emerge victorious in the next general election and defeat the corrupt elite. He said that the rulers had looted the resources and pocketed the funds meant for uplift projects.
