Democratic, military regimes equally failed to address national issues: Siraj
Emir Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Sirajul Haq has said the so-called democratic and military regimes have equally failed to address the challenges confronting the nation for decades.
While talking to media persons in Faisalabad on Wednesday, he said that majority of the political parties were either one-man shows or the properties of families and they came to power by deceiving the general public with different slogans.
Sirajul Haq said that after coming into power, the ruling elite only served their self-interests without paying any heed to issues like hunger, illiteracy, lack of basic facilities, corruption and lawlessness which plagued the country for years.
The PTI, he said, made tall slogans during its election campaign but it could not deliver in three and half years.
“Have you seen any difference between the policies of the current government and the former ones,” the JI chief pointed out, maintaining the public seemed in a different mood now and was ready to reject the status quo parties in the coming election.
“We need to get rid of the feudal lords, imperialists, and corrupt rulers through a peaceful democratic way if we want to transform Pakistan as per the vision of Quaid-e-Azam.”
Sirajul Haq said the rulers virtually handed over the country to the IMF as the PTI seemed clueless that how to fix the economy and bring down inflation and unemployment rates even after spending more than three years in power.
The JI chief earlier addressed the religious scholars and highlighted the need for unity among the ranks of Ummah. He said ulema should lead the masses to bring a peaceful Islamic revolution to the country. He said the solution to the country’s problems lies in the implementation of the system of Quran and Sunnah.
Furthermore, Sirajul Haq presided over the meeting of the JI local leaders in Multan. The different organizational matters and local government election preparations came under discussion in the meeting.
