Talking to media after presenting 10 point agenda to Allama Nasir Abbas Jaffery, Ch Shujat Hussain said that in order to pull the country out of the problems it was confronting, all scholars and intellectuals would have to be united, the rulers have brushed back the real spirit of democracy, there was dire need for enforcement of religious reforms in the country, the Constitution also says that the power should vest in the hands of the people, the govt has constituted a committee for reforms in this regard but presently revolutionary reforms and not just reforms were needed.
In reply to a question, he said that Musharraf would go out of the country sooner or later. Ch Parvez Elahi said that in furtherance of responsibility entrusted to Ch Shujat Hussain by Dr Tahirul Qadri for enlisting support for 10 points agenda, we have come to Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen today, contacts with other parties and personalities were also in progress, this agenda has been presented for the betterment of the country and the common man, present govt has ruled Punjab for six years and the entire country twice but did nothing for the welfare and well-being of the poor man, we want to bring such system which was for the welfare of the common man.
Replying to a question, he said that thinking and wisdom of the u-turn taking govt ministers could be judged from this that they realize after one month that their statement about the army was wrong, restoring law and order was also in the duties of the govt, crimes including terrorism had increased by 200 per cent, we had not only controlled terrorism during our tenure but also achieved significant achievements in the field of education and for this the World Bank had also praised our educational system, the govt was not procuring new vehicles for our started 1122 project nor providing funds for repairs and renovation of Rescue vehicles, the Punjab govt had dumped all fund into jangla bus, now people of Rawalpindi would also face this “nahoosat”, was jangla bus alone was the problem of the people.
Allama Nasir Abbas Jaffery thanking PML leadership said that Ch Shujat Hussain was very sensible and always took wise decisions, he has given preference to national interest in every matter. He said that Ahle-Tashee have never objected to increasing contacts with Ahle-Sunnat, one year performance of the present was getting worst from worse as such a system was needed which could pull Pakistan out of crises, he added.
