LAHORE - Jamaat-e-Islami Chief Munawar Hasan has said that the government was flouting the Supreme Court judgment on RPPs as it had done earlier. He said, despite the passage of three days, neither the NAB had initiated action against any accused nor any name had been put on the ECL which reflected that the rulers were intentionally violating the decision of the court.

Addressing a ceremony held to mark the completion of Hifz-e-Quran by 20 students at Madrissa Tahfeez-e-Qurazn on Monday, he said that it was undemocratic and unconstitutional attitude of the government which was bound to have lasting effect. Maulana Abdul Malik, and JI Foreign Affairs chief Abdul Ghaffar Aziz also spoke on the occasion.

Munawar Hasan said that a society where jungle law prevailed, where tyranny and injustice ruled and where rulers themselves were involved in crime, could not last long. He said, the commotion in Balochistan and Karachi at present was also because of the injustice across the country. He said that the rulers considered themselves above the law and for them their personal interests were dearer rather than the national interest. The financial and moral corruption of the rulers had crossed all limits, he added.

JI chief said the exponential hike in POL prices had aggravated the situation. He said that the US wanted to conquer the world by war but the military victories were short lived.
