Our Staff Reporter PESHAWAR - Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) former chief Qazi Hussain Ahmad has urged the tribesmen to stand against corruption and corrupt leaders to save the country, saying that the JI has become a representative party of the tribal people. Addressing a public gathering at Peero Khel Shinwari in tehsil Landi Kotal on Wednesday, Qazi said the tribal region has become the home of problems and hardships for tribesmen, but the rulers, especially the elected representatives, are not taking interest to resolve the issues. The local elders of Peero Khel tribe invited JI leadership to Landikotal, where they announced their affiliation to the party. The JI leader urged the tribal people to stand against the corrupt system, corrupt rulers and social injustices by throwing all these menaces away like the masses of Tunisia, Egypt and Libya have recently done. The US drone strikes in Fata, military operation, the law and order situation and destroyed infrastructure are the main issues of Fata, he said, adding that these issues need to be resolved with the unity and strength of the tribal people. He asked the people to differentiate between the good and bad in society and support the honest and devoted leadership for a cause so that their longstanding problems could be resolved. He further said that the parliamentarians from Fata have always been supported the sitting governments for their personal benefits rather than to serve their tribal people. Besides, on the occasion, ex-MNA Sahibzada Haroonur Rasheed while addressing the gathering condemned the on going military operation in FATA. He added that the US led NATO forces in Afghanistan would be defeated shortly. Haroon Rasheed regretted that the rulers in Pakistan have always ignored the tribesmen to give them their basic rights, which is injustice. He vowed to hold all the cruel leaders accountable, if JI was came in power. JI FATA naib Ameer Zarnoor Afridi also strongly criticized the existing elected MNA Noorul Haq Qadri for his alienation to resolve peoples problems, and urged the people to stand against the corrupt and incapable tribal parliamentarians, who exploited their funds and resources for their personal interest. On this occasion JI other local leaders were also addressed the gathering. Meanwhile, a man has urged the KP chief minister and All Pakistan Workers Welfare Board to grant compensation to the heirs of his relatives killed in a stone sliding incident while working in marble mines. Imdad Ullah, a relative of marble mine workers killed in a tragic incident of stone sliding in a marble mine, has said in a statement that compensation should be ensured for the labourers killed while performing their duty in a marble mine. He said his six relatives were killed when a heavy rock fell on them while they were busy loading a truck. He said among the killed persons two were the owners and four persons were daily wagers. He said they were lone breadwinners of their children. He said the affected family was now passing a miserable life. He appealed to chief minister and president of APWWB to ensure payment of compensation to the family members. It is worth mentioning here that two weeks ago a tragic incident occurred in Bampoha village of district Buner when mineworkers were busy working that a huge rock fell on them. Resultantly six persons were killed and several others got injured.
