LAHORE – Secretary General Jamaat-e-Islami Liaqat Baloch has said that the memo was not a mere piece of paper, it was a document of the rulers’ betrayal against national solidarity. 

In a statement here on Saturday, he said that rulers were committing blunders one after the other on the memo issue and driving the country towards clash of institutions only to hide their crimes.

Baloch said that corrupt and incompetent rulers won’t succeed in their designs to become political martyrs and they would have to pay for their crimes committed during the last four years. He said that the master mind of the document had openly invited US intervention in the country’s security matters and the civil leadership was conspiring to secure its evil interests through a secret pact with Washington.

The memo was aimed at undermining national security and giving the US guarantee to complete her agenda which was tantamount to treachery against the nation and the country.

All these facts needed a thorough enquiry through the judicial commission, he added.

Strong institutions a must for progress: Secretary General Minhaj-ul-Quran Dr Raheeq Abbasi has said that the Pakistani expatriate community was perturbed over the state affairs in the country.

On his return from the Europe visit on Saturday, he said that they were worried over dearness, which was eating into the vitals of the Pakistani state and society and the persisting energy crisis had paralysed the normal flow besides suspending the business activities in the country.

Dr Abbasi said that the strong institutions were instrumental in progress and prosperity of the country and gave a place of respect and honour to the country in the comity of nations.

The case in Pakistan, he said, was otherwise as executive was bent upon turning a deaf ear to the decisions of the Apex Court. He said that familiar pattern was the major hurdle in the way of national progress.
