JI wants Islamic Pakistan with exemplary women rightsNovember 21, 2014
Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, has said that the JI wanted to build an Islamic Pakistan wherein the women enjoyed so enormous rights that the women in Britain and the US envied them.
He was addressing the participants of an international women conference held at the Minar e Pakistan, on the second day of the JI Ijtema. More than fifty thousand women from all over the country are attending the Ijtema along with their small children. The topic of the women conference was the role of the women in the changing world.
Sirajul Haq said the presence of such a large number of women at the Ijtema was a manifestation that the Pakistani women were not impartial in the war between right and wrong, between Islam and the forces of Kufr.
These women stood with Islam in its war against hypocrisy. These women believe that Allah alone is Supreme. They did not consider the US, Britain or Russia as supreme, he added. He said that with such a large attendance of women at the Ijtema, he was seeing an Islamic revolution as close as the Minar e Pakistan.
The JI chief debunked the western propaganda that Islam denied the women rights and said the fact was otherwise. He said it was Islam that gave the women the right to inheritance and ownership of her property.
He said that fourteen centuries ago, Islam had established a paradise on the earth in the form of a household with the sacred relationships of husband and wife, mother and son, sister and brother, aunt and niece and so on.
He said that the west had demolished all these sacred relationships, denied the women their genuine rights and even thrust upon her shoulder the responsibility of earning livelihood. In spite of all this, the west claimed to be the champion of women rights.
The JI chief said that the Holy Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) was the greatest benefactor of the humanity including the women. The Prophet had said that whoever had two daughters, and he brought them up with love and affection, would be with him in the paradise as two fingers of his hand. It was the Prophet who preached sanctity of the mother for her children and declared that the paradise for a son lay in his mother’s feet.
The JI said that the women comprised fifty one per cent of the country’s population but the country’s banks did not grant loans to them although they liberally grated loans to corrupt politicians and industrialists. He declared that an Islamic government would grant interest free loans to the women so that they could bring up their children and make them as useful citizens.
He said some people were of the view that the country could progress only if its womenfolk worked shoulder to shoulder with the men as in the west. He said in fact, these people wanted that the fortress of the home which Islam had given us, be demolished as in the west. He said this was a Satanic idea. Satan who had expelled Adam and Eve from paradise, now wanted to demolish this fortress of the home and family. However, he said that the Pakistani women would frustrate this conspiracy.
Sirajul Haq asked the womenfolk present at the conference if they would take Hazrat Fatima (RA), as a model or a Hollywood actress; they shouted that their model was Fatima (RA).
He said that every movement that had the support of the women had always been successful in the human history. Therefore, he was sure that the JI’s movement for an Islamic Pakistan enjoying the support of the women folk, would Inshallah be successful.
Separately, a representative of the minorities including Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, including ex-MNA Gopal Singh Chawla, attending the JI Ijtema on Saturday, called on the JI Ameer, Sirajul Haq, and expressed their deep gratitude for the love and affection given to them at the Ijtema,
The JI chief told the delegation that he was the first man who had moved a resolution in the Khyber P. assembly that the non- Muslims living in the country should be termed as the Pakistani community and not minorities. He said he was the first political leader to visit the house of the Christian couple burnt to death at Kot Radha Kishan, recently.
Sirajul Haq said that the small elite class ruling the country had no religion, because no religion- Islam, Hinduism, Christianity permitted corruption. These rulers were not human beings as they were sucking the blood of human beings. He said that such people should be in the Odyala jail and not in the corridors of power. He also lashed at the NAB for writing off the bank loans of Rs. one billion on the recovery of Rs. fifty million only, and said that the NAB did not have any authority for this.
The JI chief said the non- Muslim Pakistanis were a big force and the JI would gather this force soon. H said the JI would hold meetings with the Pakistani community in Sindh, the Punjab, the Khyber P. and Balochistan and announce a line of action for the solution of their problems.
Speaking for the Pakistani community, Younus Khan Advocate lauded the efforts of the JI to eliminate distances between the believers of different religions. Speaking on the occasion, Chairman, Punjabi Sikh Sangat Gopal Singh, said that the country a present needed a leadership that could see India eye to eye, and said that such a leadership was available in the person of Sirajul Haq.
Addressing the Youth Convention organized by different students bodies associated with the JI, Sirajul Haq said that the west was making every effort to deprive the Muslim youth from Islamic character. Despite that, the ideals for the Muslim youth even today even today were Muhammad bin Qasim, Mehmud Ghaznvi and Salahud Din Ayubi. He said that one of the motives of the 9/11 was to change the educational syllabi in the Islamic counties. Huge funds the US had been allocated huge funds in the Kerry Lugar Bill for the media and changes in the educational syllabi but the Muslim youth had foiled all US conspiracies.
The JI chief also gave awards to several youth for their achievements in different educational fields. These included a blind young man who had done his PhD despite being handicapped.
