Lahore : Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said the recovery of millions of rupees besides twenty KG gold from the residence of Balochistan Finance Secretary was simply a tip of the iceberg and indicated the loot and plunder going on in the country. He was talking to the media at Quetta airport on Saturday.
Sirajul Haq said that the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who was the foremost custodian of the public money was terming those protesting against corruption as terrorists but when the JI demanded registration of terrorism cases against plunderers, the rulers kept silent.
The JI chief said that corruption could be wiped out only through a harsh and ruthless accountability and this could be done by laying hands on the big fish first. He said the corrupt government officials and bureaucracy did not think themselves answerable to anyone. He said that accountability would appear to be done only if the big fish were hauled up before they were successful in transferring their ill-gotten wealth abroad. .
He however said that a mass public movement was required for true accountability and expressed the hope that the JI’s Corruption Free Pakistan movement would bear fruit soon.
Sirajul Haq said that the rulers had build assets abroad through plunder while the masses in the country were deprived of basic facilities of education, health and clean drinking water. The hospitals were without ordinary medicines and drugs. He said that billions of public money were plundered by the officials and contractors.
Replying to a question, Sirajul Haq urged JUI chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman to join the opposition in its campaign against corruption and support the Opposition ToRs’ as the country needed a ruthless, not biased accountability. .
Meanwhile, Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the incident of the murder of a young girl in Abbotabad was most condemnable and a slur on the face of Islam and Pakistan. He was talking to the local people during a visit to Abbotabad on Saturday.
Sirajul Haq said that Islam strongly condemned injustice, oppression and discriminatory treatment to the womenfolk and attached them a respectable status in the society. He has urged the Ulema, religious circles as also the tribal leaders to condemn the gruesome incident and also play their role in creating public awakening to ensure prevention of such incidents in the future. He also urged the law enforcement agencies to make this incident a test case so that nobody could think of committing such a heinous crime in the days ahead.
The JI chief said the society should fear the day when Almighty Allah would ask the victim girl standing in His court on what crime she had been killed.
Sirajul Haq said that the incidents of torture on the women were only due to ignorance of the Islamic teachings and also the non implementation of the constitution and the law. He said that such incidents could be controlled by the enforcement of the Shariah.
He added that the implementation of the golden Islamic teachings was imperative to end violence and injustice to the women folk and to accord a respectable place to the mothers, sisters and daughters in the society.
The JI chief also had a meeting with the D.I.G of the area and discussed with him the details of the incident. He stressed upon the police that investigation into the incident must be completed at the earliest by taking into account all the details and all those involved in the murder must be handed down deterrent punishment.
