LAHORE: Jamaat e Islami’s Deputy Chief, Mian Muhammad Aslam, has said that the rulers were the biggest hurdle in the implementation of the constitution which was essentially Islamic.

Addressing the participants of the JI central workshop at Mansoora today, he said that if the constitution was implemented in its true spirit, majority of those sitting in the assemblies would be behind bars. He said that those plundering public money had no right to rule the country.

Mian Muhammad Aslam said that the JI was striving for an Islamic revolution in the country and its main aim was to protect the rights of the people. He said that as long as the rights of the common man were not secure, unrest and lawlessness in the society could not be overcome.

He said that if the masses were provided basic education, health facilities and jobs, crimes and illegal activities would automatically reduce.

The JI central leader said that so far, the ruling elite had been utilizing national resources for their selfish goals and deprived the masses of basic necessities of life. However, he said, that the masses had not lost hope and were still toiling hard for the development of the nation and the country and were duly paying taxes.
