Ameer, Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the judiciary had disappointed nation on Panama leaks issue as the court verdict on this most important case of the country’s history was eagerly awaited.
Addressing the concluding ceremony of the students festival organized by the Islami Jamiat e Talaba, Peshawar on Thursday, he said that the Panama leaks was a corruption matter that could pose a serious threat to the nation and the country and the Supreme Court should not have proceeded on winter vacations and expedited its decision.
The JI chief sounded a warning to Indian Prime Minister Modi that if he blocked Pakistan’s share of river water, “we will hold him by the neck and fight against India on every front as a result of which India would split into pieces while Pakistan would grow stronger and stronger”.
He took strong exception to the statement of Prime Minister’s Special Assistant, Tariq Fatemi drawing a similarity between US President elect Donald Trump and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, both being business minds. He said such sycophancy of the Pakistani rulers that this country became the battle field of the US war which had by now caused the martyrdom of around thirty five thousand people.
The JI chief noted that the previous rulers had admitted having received dollars in lieu of joing the war on terror, and asked where those dollars had gone.
He said “our elders, mothers and sisters have offered huge sacrifices during this war while the rulers built properties abroad and their bank accounts have went up”.
Sirajul Haq said that gold reserves had been discovered in Balochistan but the people of Balochistan did not get anything out of it. Pakistan has five rivers besides coal reserves over thirty million tons yet the country was having prolonged load shedding.
The JI chief said he was asked why was he not having a bullet proof car. “I want to tell my people that the servants of the masses do not move in bullet proof cars, instead, they stand as guard and protect the people.” Those travelling in bullet proof cars are afraid of their people, he added.
“Leadership is the main problem. If you have good leader, you get freedom. But if you have wrong leadership, Bangladesh is created. If the leadership is coward, eighty thousand troops lay down arms before an Indian general. Malaysia got Mahatir Muhammad as leader who put the country on the path of progress. Likewise, Japan and China got true leadership and became economic powers.—SABAH
