Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, has said that he had decided to wage a war against the ruling feudal lords and capitalists and to bring them to task , and the nation should support him in this struggle.
Addressing a big civic reception hosted in his honour in the city on Sunday afternoon, he said that the time was coming soon when a Day of Judgment would be set either in Islamabad or at the Minar e Pakistan ground in Lahore and the ruling elite would have to account for its corruption and plunder of the public wealth.
JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, JI Punjab chief, Dr Syed Waseem Akhtar also addressed the gathering also attended by thousands of women.
The JI chief said that the agents of the British had been ruling the country that had been achieved through the sacrifices of the masses. He said he had personally experienced poverty and therefore, was struggling for the restoration of the rights of the poor.
Siraj ul Haq said that the party which came to power through the catchy slogan of Roti, Kapra and Makan , was responsible for the break up of the country. Later, a military dictator deceived the people through the slogan of Pakistan First.
He said that the PPP and the PMLN() had been ruling the country turn by turn and their leaders had plundered billions. However, they had never thought of bringing each other to book on account of corruption. As a result, the rich were getting richer and the poor, poorer.
He said there were many people in the assemblies who actually deserved to be in Udyala jail or in some stable.
Siraj ul Haq referred to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s statement on return from London that some elements wanted to sabotage talks with the Taliban, and urged the Premier to expose these elements who wanted to pit the armed forces against the masses and thus plunge the country into turmoil.
The JI chief said that certain elements were trying to give an impression that Pakistan had not come into being in the name of Islam. He asked these people then why the Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had resigned from the Congress. He said in about one hundred of his speeches, the Quai d e Azam had stated that the Quran and the Sunnah would be the constitution and the law in he new state.
He said, the mosque occupied the centre place in an Islamic society, and everything revolved around it. He said time was not far off when the mosque would be our headquarters, and it would serve as the assembly hall, the court, and the central bank.
