Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq has said that status of Kashmir will no longer remain as ‘disputed’ and the region will become part of the Indian union if Islamabad fails to take decisive steps against New Delhi’s designs. Talking to senior journalists at JI provincial office ‘Markze Islamai’ in Peshawar on Sunday, he said people of Pakistan would never allow government take ‘U-turn’ on Kashmir cause.
JI Secertary General Amirul Azeem and JI Information Secretary Qaisar Sharif were also present on occasion. The leaders opposed the formation of media tribunals and assured the journalists that JI was standing with them in their struggle for free media. Senator Siraj said it was high time that political parties demonstrate unity on Kashmir by setting aside their political differences. He said the national unity was even more important and powerful than having an atomic bomb.
The JI chief said that none of the past governments disappointed the nation as much and as fast as the government of Imran Khan. The people had pinned lot of hopes on the PTI because of its tall claims but it failed to fulfill even a single promise it made with masses during the election campaign, he added. He said the unemployment and inflation were rising with every day passing and the common man was unable to earn bread and butter for family.
He demanded government announce immediate reduction in prices of petrol, electricity, gas and basic commodities of life. He told the journalists that JI had started ‘Save Kashmir Movement’ since the day India abrogated special autonomy of IHK and held big rallies in different cities.
