Karachi: Naib Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Sirajul Haq said on Wednesday that it is in Pakistan’s interest to give a safe exit to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO forces and we should not create hurdles if the enemy wanted to quit our home.

Talking to media men at the residence of PTI chairman Imran Khan in Lahore, he said that terrorism and drone attacks were the greatest issue for the whole country, especially for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa KP and its effects were being felt from Karachi to Chitral. Haq said that upcoming government should stop drone attacks and terrorism to restore peace in Pakistan.

“The upcoming government in centre and in KP would have to seek the solution of this issue while rising above party considerations”, he added. Haq hoped that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz PMLN Nawaz Sharif would pick up courage and take bold decisions with consultation the opposition for bringing normalcy and restoration of peace and stability in the region.

Answering to a question about Taliban, he said that the blind use of forces were resulting in large scale deaths, therefore, the federal and KP governments besides the establishment would have to pave way for dialogue.

This was not a matter of taking credit, it was a purely humanitarian issue which should be resolved as soon as possible, he added. Sirajul Haq said that the JI had decided to join hands with the PTI accepting their mandate.
