Talking to the media at Quetta Press club after visiting the Quetta Civil Hospital to enquire after the health of the Police cadets injured in the Tuesday terrorist attack, he said that the rulers had left the masses at the mercy of the terrorists but they themselves were living in bungalows secured by barbed wires on all sides and scores of police check posts.
Sirajul Haq said there was great similarity in the Civil Hospital and the Police Cadet College attacks and if the culprits behind the Civil hospital attack had been hauled up, the second could not have taken place.
He appreciated the prompt visit of the Prime Minister and the Army Chief to Quetta but said they should have stayed at Quetta to review the implementation of the NAP against terrorism as had been done after the Peshawar Army Public School.
He said the Balochistan government was spending Rs. 30 billion on security. This huge amount was being drawn from the taxes paid by the people. But the incidents of terrorism were increasing. The security institutions were harassing the people instead of apprehending the criminals.
The JI chief condemned the transportation of the bodies of the Quetta martyrs on the top of the vehicles to far off places, and said this was an insult to those who had
sacrificed their lives for the motherland. He said the federal and the provincial governments would have to answer for this. He said the rulers were moving around in helicopters all the time and without any justification but the martyrs were being treated in an improper way.
Sirajul Haq demanded immediate shifting of the injured to Karachi hospitals so that their lives could be saved. He said it was the responsibility of the government to look after the families of the martyrs.
The JI chief further said the government had to explain why the cadets had been called back after their training had been completed.
He said it was the enemy agenda to destroy law and order in Balochistan. He said the government should have given special attention to this point after the arrest of RAW agent Kalboshan and Indian Prime Minister Modi’s statement about Balochistan.
He said that Balochistan should not be allowed to be a war torn place like Syria and Iraq and the government should sit down with the leadership from Balochistan and work out the ways and means to end terrorism and restore peace.
He said he had been informed that a proposal for building the boundary wall of the Cadet College had been sent to the high ups in 2007 but the funds had not been released. This showed the indifference of the authorities, he said.
