Unity, harmony need of hour: Siraj

Quetta—Ameer, Jamat e Islami, Senator Sirajul Haq, has stressed that efforts for peace in the country should not be sacrificed at the altar of politics and added that politics and democracy were possible because of peace country.
He was addressing a press conference at Quetta on Friday after visiting the residences of the martyrs of the recent tragedy in the city. He expressed his condolences to the families of the martyrs. He also visited different hospitals and enquired about the welfare of the injured, and prayed for their early recovery.
He was accompanied by JI Balochistan chief Maulana Abdul Haq Hashmi and former provincial chief Abdul Mateen Akhudzada.
The JI chief said that if India was behind the Quetta carnage, she should be exposed without yielding to any pressure or fear. Sirajul Haq said it was unfortunate that while the Quetta tragedy was still fresh in the minds of the people, the parties in the Parliament had begun to malign one another. He said that this was the time to promote national unity and harmony instead of throwing mud on each other.
Sirajul Haq said that the demon of terrorism could be tackled through mutual cooperation and coordinated efforts of all concerned. He said that instead of providing protection to the masses, the rulers had confined themselves to big palaces. He said that Quetta had turned into Karbala while Karachi was red due to target killings and Peshawar was ablaze due to bombardment.
The JI chief said that peace in the country was linked to the peace in Balochistan and if if that province remained disturbed, peace would elude the country.—SABAH
