LAHORE - Almost all religious and political parties of the country have agreed to launch a countrywide grand movement for the protection and promotion of Pakistan Ideology under the umbrella Pakistan Ideology Coordination Council and also announced a Supreme Council and Core Committee in which all parties, besides lawyers and intellectuals, have representation.

The announcement in this regard was made at meeting chaired by Jamaat-ud-Dawa Amir Hafiz Muhammad Saeed at a local hotel. The meeting was attended by representatives of all political and religious parties including Liaqat Balochi, Ijazul Haq, Pir Ijaz Hashmi, Shahibzada Pir Sultan Ahmed Ali, Ghulam Muhammad Safi, Hafiz Abdur Rahman Makki, Syed Yousaf Nasim, Syed Kafil Shah Bukhari, Pir Masood Chishti, Abdulghaffar Ropri, Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer and Mualana Amir Hamza.

It was decided at the meeting that Pakistan Cravans (rallies) would be taken out in all major cities in the country on August 14 under the Pakistan Ideology Coordination Council and all political and religious parties would take part in these rallies. The Kashmir issue and autocracy of Indian government was also discussed at the meeting.

Addressing the meeting, JD Amir Hafiz Saeed said there was dire need to promote the Pakistan ideology. In 1947, it was needed for creation of Pakistan and now it is needed to strengthen the country which was made in the name of Islam.

He said Pakistan Ideology Coordination Council was not political forum, so that it should active all the time and a grand meeting of this forum would be organized in which Supreme Council and Core Committee would be formed. He said more the ideology is promoted, and more the country is strengthened.

Hafiz Saeed cautioned the government that the country was surrounded by conspiracies. The United States first attacked Afghanistan by making Pakistan its base and now Pakistan was being attacked by making Afghanistan it base.

The JD Amir also said India and America were hatching conspiracies against Pakistan while sitting in India and these conspiracies could only be countered by promoting the Pakistan ideology. He said Kahsmiris were sacrificing their lives for hoisting the Pakistan flag and we should also stand by them.
