JI distances itself from PTIs Raiwind march: Siraj
Lahore—Ameer, Jamaat-e-Islami Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the Pakistani nation and the armed forces were on the same page against India and in case of an aggression, would give a befitting response to the enemy, which would end up in the emergence of several new Pakistans within India.
He was addressing a news conference at Mansoora on Sunday at the conclusion of the JI Shoora meeting.
Sirajul Haq said the Shoora had reviewed the rulers’ indifference on the issues of Panama leaks and resolved that if the government did not constitute an independent judicial Commission for equity into the matter and the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not present himself for accountability, the only option with the opposition would be to hold public protests.
Sirajul Haq said that the JI Shoora had reviewed the situation in Held Kashmir following the martyrdom of Burhans Muzaffar Wani. He said the Pakistani nation paid rich tributes to the Kashmiris for their sacrifices and stood with them in their struggle for liberation. The Shoora resolved to defend the homeland till their last breath and the last drop of blood in their veins.
The JI chief said that the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had presented the Kashmir issue at the UN in accordance with the sentiments of the nation. However, he said, there was need for practical steps in the same direction.
He noted that US President Obama had not mentioned the Kashmir issue in his address to the UN General Assembly which reflected the weakness of Pakistani diplomacy. He said it seemed the government had not made preparations on this score at the international and diplomatic fronts.
The JI chief said the Kashmiris movement was continuing only because of the efforts of the Kashmiri youth who under the leadership of Burhan Wani Shaheed, had been determined to achieve liberation.
Sirajul Haq said he had been expecting that the Prime Minister in his UN address, would take up the issue of Modis’ meddling in Balochistan and Baltistan and the executions of JI leaders in Bangladesh in violation of the 1974 agreement between Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. However, this was not done.—INP
