WAZIRABAD

Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan General Secretary Liaqat Baloch regretted that a handful of people had taken 180 million Pakistan hostages and were playing with their fate for their vested interest.

“The rulers are in slumber and have turned a blind eye to the interest of Pakistan which can be judge from the fact that those who had struggled for a united Pakistan are being punished for their love for Pakistan in Bangladesh after 40 years.”

JI Secretary General Liaqat Baloch made the remarks while addressing a cheque distribution ceremony to flood affectees here the other day.

Mr Baloch pointed out that Pakistanis in East Pakistan who guarded Ideology of Pakistan, were being executed after 40 years in Bangladesh which was violation of International Law. “The Bangladeshi government has no right to punish those people who are now citizens of Bangladesh and never violated Bangladesh Law and constitution,” he added.

The JI stalwart emphasised that the Bangladeshi government should abide by the International Law and moral values, adding that the ongoing victimisation of Jamaat-e-Islami leaders in Bangladesh was against Islam. He alleged that Bangladeshi Premier Sheikh Hasina Wajid was toeing the lines of her foreign masters and was carrying out the agenda of anti-Muslims India.

Mr Baloch lamented that the incumbent rulers neither had any policy nor agenda for the welfare of Pakistan. “Only a handful of people has made 180millions of Pakistani hostages and are herding them as animal,” he pointed, adding that people were faced with severe hardships including price hike and were deprived of justice. The JI leader stated that energy crisis had collapsed economic structure of the country and had robbed labourers of employments. ‘The only way to tackle all the prevailing challenges and crises is Islamic system which will not ensure justice but will also protect the rights of all religious minorities,” Baloch underscored, adding that price hike and corruption was the main problem facing Pakistanis.

He urged that the rulers should come on right path and work for the welfare Pakistan and betterment of people. “Allah has gifted pakistan with rich by resources and could be a country to provide a dignified way of living to its citizen if the system is changed and overhauled,” he said.

Later, Liaqat Baloch distributed relief cheques worth Rs10 million to 700 flood affectees. He appealed to people to participate Jamaat’s convention being held at Minar-e-Pakistan from Nov 21st.

JI Gujranwala Ameer Bilal Qudrat Butt, Kissan Board District president Ch Farooq Ahmad Otthi, Chairman Al-Khidmat Foundation Wazirabad Muhammad Mushtaq Butt, Local Ameer Nasir Mehmood Kalair, Waseem Shahid Olakkh, Mirza Ghulam Mustafa and Abdul Wakeel Alvi were also present on the occasion.
