LAHORE: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that Pakistan, equipped with  a nuclear bomb, is much stronger today than it was in 1965 and if India dares to cast an evil eye on this country, it would suffer a much bigger defeat. He was addressing the Azme Nau Conference in the Punjab capital held to commemorate the Defense of Pakistan Day.

Sirajul Haq said that the country needed a Mujahid leader like Muhammad Bin Qasim and  Mehmud Ghaznavi to counter India.

“It is a pity,” he said, “that the rulers in Islamabad are keen to treat India as their most favourite state although the hands of Indian army are smeared with the blood of the Kashmiris.”

He urged the youth of the country to adopt Major Tufail Shaheed and Aziz Bhatti Shaheed as their models.
