Lahore : “Youme Azm” was observed all over the country on the appeal of the Ameer, Jamaat Islami, Pakistan, Senator Siraj ul Haq, indicating the nation’s resolve to continue its struggle against corruption till Pakistan became corruption free.
Rallies in this respect were staged in the big cities including Rawalpindi, Quetta, Karachi and Faisalabad. The JI chief addressed the rally at Rawalpindi. Speaking on the occasion, Sirajul Haq said it was a matter of shame that the Prime Minister of Pakistan should be working as an employee of a company in a small country. Such an act was tantamount to putting the country’s honour at stake only for a petty gain, he added.
The JI chief said that one could only pity the wisdom of those who considered the JIT investigations and the unanimous judgment of the Supreme Court as unjust.
He said that in fact, Nawaz Sharif was facing Allah’s wrath for his failure to abolish interest despite his pledge in this regard. Besides, he said, the blood of Shaheed Mumtaz Qadri who was executed for the murder of former Punjab Governor Salman Taseer for committing blasphemy could not have gone waste.
He deplored that the Pakistanis could not become a nation during the last seventy years as the rulers had divided the people on the basis of communities and regions.
He said the rulers claimed to have put the country on the path of progress. He said the ground situation was that about half of the country’s population could not get clean drinking water. Each bed in the government hospitals in big cities had three patients on the average. Educated youth were roaming about in search of jobs but in vain.
He said the JI was striving for the Rule of Allah in the country and for the supremacy of the law and the constitution. He said the rulers were feeling sorry for not abolishing articles 62 and 63 of the constitution and were terming these as transgression. He however, warned that no one would be allowed to abolish these articles.
He said that even in the western countries, a liar was not allowed to contest elections.
