Lahore: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Syed Munawar Hassan has said that military operation in North Waziristan would be fatal, any such attempt would only result in further destruction of the country. While talking to media Munawar Hassan claimed that the decision had been taken under American pressure. “The military leadership has finally yielded to the US pressure and decided to launch a military operation in North Waziristan,” he maintained.
He asserted that the decision had been taken soon after the ISI’s director general’s visit to the United States. “This clearly indicates that the operation in North Waziristan is being launched under the American pressure,” he added.
The Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer demanded of the government to immediately withdraw the decision. “After military operation in North Waziristan, the US would certainly demand another operation in Southern Punjab on the pretext that the terrorists had taken shelter there and later the operation would spread to all parts of the country,” he observed.
Munawar further said the US wanted to spread anarchy in Pakistan to ultimately destroy the country’s nuclear programme.
Also, the Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer condemned the Rangers raid at the Madrassa Darul Uloom, Karachi, being run by Grand Mufti of Pakistan Muhammad Rafi Usmani.
