Siraj condemns Quetta attack; sees RAW, KHAD behind terrorism
Islamabad—Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami, Senator Sirajul Haq has strongly condemned terrorist attack at Quetta and termed it at attack on Pakistan and its peaceful people. Addressing a National Conference on International Terrorism and Pakistan at Islamabad under the aegis of Mili Yakjehti Council on Monday, he said that RAW and KHAD had a hand in the attack. He called upon the government to expose the real culprits and bring them to book.
MYC President Sahibzada Dr Abul Khair Zubair, Jama’t Al Dawa Chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, JI Secretary General Liaqat Baloch also addressed the moot. Sirajul Haq said the Quetta attack proved that the rulers were fast asleep as their only agenda was to complete their term while the masses were at mercy of terrorists.
He said that Pakistan had not been attacked by any foreign power yet her 65 thousand innocent citizens had been martyred and the entire nation was under constant fear. He said that the India involvement had already become clear with the arrest of RAW agent Kalbhoshan.
The JI chief said that the nation and all political parties had given a mandate to the gov-ernment for wiping out the menace of terrorism, but the government had failed to protect the life and property of the citizens. He counseled the government to invite all the stake holders in Balochistan and also hold dialogue with the Baloch leaders sitting outside the country.
He said that the country was also suffering from political and economic terrorism. The rulers had deprived the nation of its ideology and divided it into the haves and have-nots. He said that two per cent elite were controlling 98 per cent of national resources. He said that unless and until our own house was in order, the nation could not face Indians in a befitting manner.
Sirajul Haq said that Kashmir was an issue of life and death for the country. He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had addressed the nation thrice on Panama leaks issue but did not have the courage to place the hard fact in Kashmir to the nation because that was not his priority.
The JI chief said the Kashmiris had vowed to observe August 15, the independence day of India as Black Day and added that the MYC would hold a march from Muzaffarabad to Chakothi on that day and to assure the kashmiris that they were not alone in their struggle for liberation. He greeted the Turkish people and rulers on the failure of the military coupe and urged them to firmly stand against the US instead of bowing to it as the Ummah was with them.
MYC President Sahibzada Abul Khair Zubair said that the sacred places of the Muslims were being target. He urged the government to play its role in narrowing the differences among different Muslim countries. He said that the government could not fulfill its respon-sibility towards the Kashmiris simply by observing a day and should adopt practical steps in this direction.
Jamaat al Dawa chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said that the forces of Kufr had begun a war against the Muslims and were making massive propaganda due to which it was difficult for the Muslim to fight a defensive war. He said that the US was the biggest culprit. He said that the situation could not improve through hue and cry and the Kashmir issue would be solved only when India was her position in 1948.
JI senior leader Prof. Muhammad Ibrahim said that peace must be restored in Afghanistan in order to stop terrorism in this country. PML(N) leader Lt. Gen. Abdul Qayyum, said that Afghanistan had been subjected to state terrorism and the genocide of the Afghans was going on. He said that Kashmir was a disputed area and the UN resolutions were the basis of our case on the issue while the world community was pursuing double standards on this respect.—SABAH
