LAHORE  - Declaring war against what he described the interest-based economy and feudal system and demanding holding of next elections on the basis of proportional representation, Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq on Friday revealed public agenda in front of an attractive gathering of his party workers at Minar-e-Pakistan.

In a fiery speech, Sirajul Haq announced that JI after coming into power would make peasants and labourers as shareholders in lands and factories.  “The Islamic government will retrieve the lands granted by the British to their cronies and distribute it among landless tillers,” said JI chief and appealed to the people for boycott of interest-based banking system if the government was not ready to take it back.

Jamaat-e-Islami would bring end to VVIP culture in the country, he pledged and also vowed to bring end to unemployment.  “JI would give stipend to every educated person till he/she would be unemployed in Islamic Pakistan.”

He announced his party policy for provision of free education and health facilities to the people of Pakistan and also establishment of a uniform education system in national language for every rich and poor.  According to him, Islamic government of the Jamaat would provide old age special allowance to elders and imams at every mosque would be given salary.

Condemning the Kot Radha Kishan incident in which a couple was burnt to death by a mob on charged of blasphemy, he said Islam does not allow such brutality and mob-justice. He held it is the Islamic government which could protect the rights of minorities. Had there been an Islamic law in Pakistan, such incident would never been happened, he added.

Sirajul Haq stressed the need for bringing back people’s trust on ballot box. He, though not directly, but slightly pointed out rigging in general elections 2013.  JI chief said people now would not accept selection in the name of election.

He also spoke against the prevailing corruption and status quo in the society, claiming only JI has had the capability for establishing a transparent and corruption-free Pakistan.

Sirajul Haq as JI chief and as former Senior Minister of KPK offered himself for accountability and demanded the same from Prime Minister and former rulers.

He stressed the need for unity among the country men and asked them to stand against what he described the corrupt elite.  Now, nobody could stop Pakistan to be an Islamic welfare State dreamt by our elders, he stated.

JI Ameer said that his party after coming into power would be the true representative of 180 million Pakistanis at home and of one billion Muslims at world level.  The Ijtema was being attended by delegates from 25 countries including Sudan, Egypt, Syria, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Britain, the US, Jordan and Palestine.

Prominent leaders of the Islamic movements from different countries were also attending the moot.  In the afternoon, Palestine Foundation Pakistan also held a pictorial exhibition of the atrocities of Zionist forces against the Palestinian Muslims at the moot.

The organisers appealed to the Muslim Ummah to boycott the Zionists products and those regimes patronising Zionists by ignoring their crimes against humanity.

The JI Secretary General, Liaquat Baloch and JI Lahore chief, Mian Maqsood Ahmed, also addressed the gathering.

Earlier, the three day Ijtema of the Jamaat-e-Islami began with the Friday prayers at Badshahi Mosque. The central leader of the Akhwanul Muslimoon and eminent Syrian scholar Al-Sheikh Sadrud-din Albayuni delivered the Friday sermon.

Sadrud-din Albayuni said that the Muslims were not terrorists instead they were the saviours of the humanity.

The existence of the Muslim Ummah is a guarantee for the human life on the earth, he said.

He asked the leaders of the non-Muslims to understand this vital point and stop their conspiracies against the Muslim world.

He stressed upon the leaders of the Muslim world to make the non-Muslims realise this fact as well.

The Akhwanul Muslimoon leader said that Islam was not a threat for the world peace.

He also stressed the need for the enforcement of the Shariat e Muhammadi for promotion of love, affection and equality.

Different activities including mushaira, youth expo, discussions and question answer session of JI workers with Sirajul Haq were held on first day of the three-day congregation.
