Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, has said that the time had come for a change through the book instead of the gun. He was addressing the oath taking ceremony of Chairman of the District Development Advisory Committee, Temargarah, on Tuesday. Haji Saeed Gul took the oath.
Sirajul Haq said that the western powers had always supported dictators in the Muslim world. International powers were spreading unrest in thirteen Muslim countries through their conspiracies. He said that the Afghans were being punished in the form of turmoil for defeating the Soviet Union and NATO.
He said that Islam had nothing to do with terrorism. However, religion and religious people were being defamed through a conspiracy. He said that instead of making propaganda against the mosque, madrissahs and Islam, efforts should be made to bring the three million madrissah students closer, and added that no power on earth could end the madrisahs.
The JI chief said that there were flaws in the 21st amendment therefore, the amendments proposed by the religious parties should be incorporated to maintain the national unity against terrorism.
He said that around ten million Fata people were denied the basic civic facilities. He proposed that FATA be declared a separate province or merged into Khyber P. He said it was high time to try to win over the estranged Baloch people.
Meanwhile, Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, former Ameer, Syed Munawar Hasan, JI deputy chiefs Prof. Khurshid Ahmed, Asadullah Bhutto, Rashid Naseem, Hafiz Muhammad Idrees, Mian Muhammad Aslam, and JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, have expressed deep grief over the sad demise of the mother of the JI Sindh chief, Merajul Huda Siddiqui.
