JI wants equal budget for madaris, schools

Peshawar—Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has called upon the Federal Finance Minister to allocate budget for the madaris, their students and teachers equal to that of the schools, colleges and universities as the former had equal right over the public exchequer.
Addressing a ceremony marking the conclusion of the teaching of the Bukhari Sharif at Al-Markaz Islami, Hadiqatul Uloom, Peshawar, on Sunday, he said that the Finance Minister would be rendering a great service by making such allocation because those studying and teaching at madrissahs and mosques were the real servants of the nation. He also urged the Ulema to use the pulpit and the mosque for uprooting mischief and corruption.
Sirajul Haq said that the anti state elements were more afraid of the madrissahs and the Islamic system of life than the county’s armed forces and its nuclear power. The JI chief said that everybody talked of the rule of the constitution and the law but did not implement these practically. He said the country’s foremost constitution was the Quran and the Sunnah. Secondly, there was the 1973 constitution that had been adopted unanimously. Next, he said, were our culture and way of life which was to be preserved at every cost.
He deplored that the 1973 constitution was not being implemented truthfully and added that had the constitution been implemented sincerely, corruption would not reached such heights as now. Referring to PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto’s suggestion of having non Muslim President and Prime Minister if the country, Sirajul Haq remarked that the PPP should first induct a non Muslims in its top slot. Sirajul Haq said that the so called Women Protection Law adopted by the Punjab Assembly had been rejected by the womenfolk in the Punjab. He said the bill had been adopted at the behest of the western powers and not on the demands of the country’s women.
Meanwhile, Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the victimization of pro-Pakistan JI leaders in Bangladesh could be stopped in the light of the tripartite agreement between Pakistan, Bangladesh and India if the Pakistan government so desired.—INP
