Lahore : Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the month of Rabiul Awwal had passed but the government had not even begun its journey towards the state of Madina.
Addressing “Tahafuz e Namoos e Risalat” Conference at Faisalabad, he said that the government had levied Sin Tax contrary to the Islamic philosophy and the ruling party MNAs had staged a walkout over a bill seeking ban on liquor. He said this was a mockery of the Pakistan ideology and the government seemed to have forgotten that it had promised to make the country an Islamic state.
Sirajul Haq said the federal cabinet held a marathon meeting spread over nine hours at which all the ministers were declared pass while the nation had failed.
He said the government’ result of one hundred days had surpassed the result of the Oxford university and the ministers were overjoyed over getting hundred per cent marks while the masses were ready to embrace death because of price hike and unemployment. He said the PTI government had brought a tsunami of price spiral.
Sirajul Haq said, “it is not a government, but is a group of people with heterogeneous ideas who have got together to protect their interests”.
He said the nation had been expecting the PTI government to strive for the liberation of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui but it had released Aasia Masih who had been guilty of blasphemy. Some people were conspiring for the deletion of the article 295 of the constitution, he added.
The JI chief said the government was pressurizing the media not to give coverage torallies and public meetings concerning the Namoos e Risalat. However, he said that the nation would foil every conspiracy against the law relating to the Namoos e Risalat.
Sirajul Haq said that the article 38 of the constitution required the abolition of interest but the rulers were insisting that the interest based economy would bring prosperity.
He said the government’s sole performance till today was that everything except the rupee had become dearer and it was being said that the value of the rupee would further decline till June next year.
Speaking on the occasion, JI Chief for the central Punjab, Amir ul Azeem said that the people promising an Islamic government had come down to revolt against the Islamic teachings. He said that prosperity would come not through population control but through control of prices, unemployment , lawlessness and overcoming the energy crisis.
