KARACHI - Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan chief Senator Sirajul Haq on Sunday visited the family of Naqeebullah Mehsud who was killed by a police party led by SSP Malir Rao Anwar, reportedly in a fake encounter.

The JI leader on the occasion gave the government a deadline of 10 days to resolve the issue of extrajudicial killings and forced disappearances, otherwise, he announced disclosing the next line of action in a large Jirga on January 31.

Senator Sirajul Haq accused Rao Anwar of hundreds of extrajudicial killings. He said: “Rao Anwar not only killed Naqeebullah Mehsud but also he is responsible for extrajudicial killings of 424 youngsters.” He asked Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and Pakistan People Party chief Asif Ali Zardari to provide justice to the affected family.

The JI leader said that the party always raised voice against extrajudicial killings and forced disappearances. Had the government implemented on the recommendations of JI’s Jirga on extrajudicial killings, the incident would not have happened, he said. He strictly condemned the brutal murder and said that only suspension and transfer is not a solution to these issues. He said that all those responsible for the killings should be sentenced to exemplary punishment.

If the government failed to provide justice to the affected families, people will grab the rulers by the neck, he added. The JI leader offered fateha for the deported soul and the grieved family.

Earlier, addressing party gathering at Idara-e-Noorul Haq, the JI chief said that Pakistani society needs justice, as all resources and powers are occupied by the elite class. He said dynasty-based politics and rampant corruption has marred this country. He said Karachi, the lifeline of national economy, has been facing immense problems. He said only Islamic system will offer sustainable resolution to all our issues.

The JI chief said poor masses of Pakistan are not doled out justice. He said justice could be doled out only with concrete steps not with just rhetoric. He said the poor masses lack basic facilities of education, healthcare, jobs and social security.

He said there are two parties in Pakistan, one supporting the cause of poor masses and other taking care of the vested interests of the elite class. He said there are two parties: one belonging to the oppressors and other belonging to the oppressed people. He said a revolt against the injustice has become overdue in our society.

JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem, host JI District East Karachi Amir Muhammad Yunus Barai and others also spoke.

Furthermore, JI on Sunday also held a protest demonstration against the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) outside Karachi Press Club (KPC) over blocking the computerized national identity cards (CNICs) of Pakhtuns and Bangalis resident of Karachi.

Addressing the participants, JI leaders said that citizens of the Karachi were facing numerous problems due to the blockage of the cards. Most of the people were deprived of their passport and even could open bank account. Moreover many people were also deprived of submitting Haj application and perform Umrah.

Earlier, it was reported that Nadra personnel issued CNICs to foreigners and Afghans but it is unfortunate that federal authority had placed a question mark on the status of other citizens by asking irrelevant documents to avail their CNICs, they said and demanded to make the verification process easy for citizens instead forcing people to suffer by visiting different offices repeatedly.
