Siraj Says PM’s Complaint Against Lack of Patience Among Pakistanis Equal to Admitting His Govt’s Failure
LAHORE– Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said the prime minister’s complaint against lack of patience among Pakistanis is tantamount to admitting his own government’s failure.
In a statement issued from JI headquarters Mansoora on Tuesday, he said it seemed the present rulers could not bring betterment in any sector even if they availed 100 years to rule over country.
Imran Khan’s government, he added, was pushing country towards further decline due to lack of planning and wrong policies.
The government, said Senator Siraj, turned the entire country into a ‘langar khana’ with no plan to check rising unemployment, inflation and poverty
He said the PTI had promised a change in first 100 days of its government but it had taken not a single step towards betterment of people even after passage of 350 days.
The people, he said, were desperate because the government exposed itself before them. He added that those who claimed to turn Pakistan a Madina-like-state were taking direction from the West for every move.
The JI chief announced that women of Azad Jammu and Kashmir will hold an Azadi March in Islamabad on October 16. The JI will organize the march to express solidarity with people of Indian Held Kashmir.
Meanwhile, Milli Yakjehti Council (MYC) is organizing “Kashmir Solidarity Conference” in Islamabad on October 10 (Friday). AJK Prime Minister Sardar Farooq Haidar, GB CM Hafeezur Rahman, MYC President Abu-ul-Khair Zubair, JI chief Sirajul Haq and others will speak on occasion.
Qaiser Sharif on Kashmir
Jamaat-e-Islami Information Secretary Qaisar Sharif has said that the JI is holding countrywide marches in support of Kashmiris since the day India abrogated the special status of the occupied region.
The purpose of the “Save Kashmir Rallies,” he said in a statement issued from JI headquarters Mansoora on Tuesday, was to convey a message to Kashmiri brethren that people of Pakistan were standing shoulder to shoulder with them in their struggle for freedom from Indian yoke.
The marches organized under the banner of JI in Islamabad, Peshawar, Karachi, Quetta, Sargodha, Muzaffarabad, Gilgit and Lahore attracted participation of thousands of people from all walks of life, said Qaisar. However, he regretted, the government had failed to represent the feelings of people of Pakistan about Kashmiris at every forum.
He said the JI is organizing “Save Kashmir March” on October 13 in Hyderabad followed by Kashmiri women march in Islamabad on October 16.— PRESS RELEASE
