KARACHI - Majlis-e-Wehdatul-Muslimeen (MWM) central Secretary General Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jaffery on Sunday condemned the government for releasing Taliban prisoners and said that the negotiations with the killers of 55,000 Pakistanis was against Shariah and Constitution of the country.

Addressing a Press conference here at Karachi, Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jaffery said that the govt has sold out the respect and dignity of the country for 1.5 billion US dollars stating that we could not allow the present regime to involve Pakistan in the Middle East war.

He was accompanied by MWM Leaders Allama Mukhtar Imami, Allama Mubashir Hassan and Nasir Hussaini.

Commenting over the foreign and internal policy of the country, Raja Nasir said that the foreign policy of Pakistan is being adversely affected by extremists of a particular mindset.  He said that the govt should learn from people of Afghanistan who did not get lured by any aid nor they were afraid of any Taliban terrorism and took part in the electoral system.

However, in Pakistan Sharif brothers have already surrendered to terrorist Taliban, he added.

He announced that his party will take legal measures against the govt’s illegal decision of releasing Taliban prisoners.


Staff Reporter from Lahore adds: Jamaat-i-Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan has impressed upon Prime Minister and the Interior Minister to speed up the process of dialogue as unnecessary delay could create complications.

According to a Press release issued here on Sunday, he also urged the Taliban to release Prof Muhammad Ajmal and others in their custody in response to the government’s announcement of releasing 13 TTP men.  He said that the extension of ceasefire by the Taliban proved that they wanted peace and also desired the success of the dialogue within the Constitution.  He urged the government to go a step forward and immediately release the non-combatants, as the detention of aged, women and children could have its repercussions.   The JI chief also stressed upon the Taliban to try to bring all of their groups on one platform to ensure consensus on the formula decided by the government and the Taliban. He said the Taliban should announce their dissociation from any group which violated the agreement and join hands with the government for bringing such groups on the right path. 

The Jamaat e Islami will stage a massive protest in the Punjab capital against the government policies resulting in price spiral, lawlessness and unemployment in the Punjab capital on April 27, JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch said here on Sunday. In a statement on Sunday, he said that the PML-N in its election campaign had made tall promises for bringing about an economic revolution in the country but its performance during the last 10 months was just the opposite.

He slated the government move for privatisation of major public sector concerns under the dictates of the IMF.
