JI envisions ‘Islamic Pakistan’: HaqSeptember 25, 2014
KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) amir Sirajul Haq has said that his party envisions not a ‘new Pakistan’ but an ‘Islamic Pakistan’.
He was addressing gatherings and receptions at Thatta, Gharo, Dhabeji and Jharak on Friday, as he started his first tour of Sindh province after assuming the charge of party chief. His visit is aimed at mobilizing of the JI cadres in the province regarding their upcoming foundation day of the party, scheduled at Minar-e-Pakistan, Lahore from November 21-23, 2014.
Haq said that their ‘Islamic Pakistan’ would ensure safeguard of life, property and honor of all citizens, irrespective of the fact that they are Muslims or non-Muslims. He said the traditional politicians of Pakistan were fighting for their vested interests and they are least concerned for the rights of ordinary citizens. He regretted that the dogs of our politicians are being given better care than poor masses. He said we do not expect from these cruel people any good for the masses of Pakistan. He said these politicians have kept the poor people of the country including Sindh province their slaves and they would be never ready to change this exploitation-based political system.
He said a corruption-free political leadership can solve the problems of poor Pakistanis and his party is playing its due role to provide the nation and country such alternate leadership. He said people of Pakistan have tested the PPP and PML-N but they failed to deliver; now the Pakistani voters should also try JI by giving it a chance.
Haq said our political elite are not able to run even the four provinces properly and how they could run twenty provinces if new provinces are made. He said their party respects the historical sociopolitical unity of Sindh. He said Thatta was the real gateway of Islam in this region and this was also the land of scholars and saints.
JI Sindh amir Dr Merajul Huda Siddiqui also spoke.
