LAHORE, Oct. 1 (PPI): Ameer, Jamat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the United Nations had become a toy in the hands of US and other big powers due to which its position at the world level had become controversial.

While opposing an increase in the UN Security Council membership, the JI chief called for complete restructuring of the United Nations in view of its failure to resolve the problems of the Muslim world.

Talking to the members of the Standing Committees of the JI central Shoora at Mansoora, he stressed that war mongering India must not become a member of the UN Security Council under any circumstances.

Sirajul Haq noted that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had rightfully presented the nation’s sentiments regarding Kashmir issue in the UN General Assembly.

The JI chief expressed satisfaction over the hoisting of the Palestine flag at the UN for the first time and greeted the Palestinian people on this success. He also demanded of the UN to take concrete steps for the liberation of Palestine from Israel occupation and accept her as a permanent member.

Sirajul Haq said that the US and world powers had always used the UN for their own interests . He said that the UN Security Council should not be the club of the big powers. The world body must prove itself an undisputed and trustable body for guaranteeing world peace, he added.

He said that for decades, the UNO had simply acted as a Reporting agency and a silent spectator of events while big powers perpetrated untold oppression on the small states. He said it was the UNO’s duty to stop big powers from tyranny and injustice but it had not fulfilled its duty.

Sirajul Haq said that in most cases, the UN had simply been toeing the line adopted by the US and other world powers. He said that seven lakh Indian troops had kept the Kashmiris as slaves for last six decades on gun point. Lakhs of |Kashmiris had sacrificed their lives in their struggle for freedom while lakhs were suffering in jails but the UN had completely failed to implement its resolutions on Kashmir.

Referring to the situation in Afghanistan, he said that both Afghanistan and Pakistan needed peace. He said this was time for solving issues through dialogue and not grabbing powers through armed struggle. As such, he said, the two sides should resolve their issues through dialogue. He said that exit of all foreign troops was essential to restore peace in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the JI chief visited the residence of Haji Mian Riaz Ahmed, who had been martyred in the Mina tragedy and expressed his deep condolences with the bereaved family.
