GUJRANWALA/KHARIAN CANTT - Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan General Secretary Liaqaut Baloch expressed his apprehensions regarding delay in the general elections, saying that the terrorists' attacks aimed at spreading anarchy to get the elections postponed. He said that the Balochistan government had failed beyond any doubt and demanded Governor's rule in the province to protect people.

While addressing party workers and executive here in Gujranwala, Baloch said that some forces were trying to disrupt the democracy and in this pursuit they were raising slogans of turning Islamabad into Al-Tahrir Square which laid bare their agenda to postpone elections. He alleged that out of nowhere someone came with a foreign agenda and give lectures without having knowledge of the dynamics here which created severe apprehensions. The Nato forces are preparing to leave Afghanistan in 2014 and any influenced agenda at this crucial point will be harmful for the country," he pointed out. The JI leader claimed that 'foreign pressures' had subjugated all political parties in government but the Jamaat would stand fast against all "old and new puppets" to eliminate foreign influence from the country. Baloch said that these forces were planning to create reason for the delay in elections. He stressed the need for collaboration among patriotic forces to assert the early announcement of the general elections.

Meanwhile, addressing participants of a sit-in held under the aegis of Millat-i-Jafaria here at GT Road Lalamusa, JI General Secretary Liaquat Baloch said that the Jamaat-e-Islami was standing shoulder to shoulder with the aggrieved brethren of Alamdar Road tragedy in Quetta. He termed the Balochistan Chief Minister mere a joker, saying that he had failed to maintain law and order in province. The JI leader called terrorists the enemy of human beings and said that the Quetta incident was not a sectarian act rather a planned move to crate divide among the Muslims. Baloch said that the late JI leader Qazi Hussain Ahmed was ambassador of peace as he united people of all schools of thought on one platform. He called the rulers as killers and alleged that they were not serious to provide protection to the masses, adding that such rulers had no right to rule on the nation any more. Baloch stressed that the slaves of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) and bearers of the flag of Hussainiat were united against the enemies of Muslim and Pakistan and would be dealt exemplary.

JI District President Dr Ahsanullah Shah also addressed the participants of sit-in against bomb blasts attacks in Quetta.
