LAHORE -  Jamaat e Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan has said that the Pakistani nation has failed to evolve its independence into a movement for the supremacy of Islam due to which it has been forced to accept the slavery of the anti Islam forces through the IMF and the World Bank.

Addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, he said the present government had broken all records of securing loans from the international donors which would be recovered from the poverty stricken masses in the form of taxes and price-hike.

He said no govt had ever explained to the people as to where the huge foreign loans were spent despite frequent raise in  price of POL, gas and electricity, and ,added, that the foreign loan were spent only on the luxuries of the rulers while the poor masses became poorer. Munawar said that the federal Finance Minister was overjoyed over the approval of the IMF loans and was projecting it as a big success although this was tantamount to selling national honour and dignity.

The JI chief said that all man made systems including capitalism had failed to bring peace and happiness to mankind whereas Islam stood there to accept this challenge.

He further said  that the anti Islam powers were playing with the lives of innocent people in their bid to tarnish the image of Islam and to hide its glorious aspects from the world at large.

Meanwhile, the JI chief and JI Secretary General Liaquat Baloch have condemned thee drone attack in North Waziristan on Friday resulting in several deaths.

They said it was an irony that while the nation was celebrating the Defence Day, the US drones were violating Pakistani territory, killing innocent citizens.

It was high time that the rulers took a bold stance against the drones, they added.
