LAHORE - Jamaat-i-Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq has said that Pakistani nation stood fully united against India.

Taking to the media in Mansora yesterday, he said if India dared make any adventure, it would have to face a befitting reply. He said Indian threats to Pakistan was out of her fear of a sure defeat in Kashmir.  Earlier, he chaired the Jamaat Shora meeting.

“Modi is a war monger and his government is busy in poisonous propaganda against Pakistan to cover its failure in resolving the problems of poverty and the growing unrest among the minorities of India,” he said.

Siraj said that Pakistan today was not the Pakistan of 1965 or 1971 rather it was now a recognized nuclear power. He said: “ India should keep it mind that in case of war, the bigger country had to suffer higher losses”. He said that India would have to come towards a meaningful dialogue on Kashmir.

He said the JI appreciated the manner Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had represented the nation’s sentiments on the Kashmir issue.

Siraj told journalist the JI Shoora also reviewed Jammat’s Corruption Free Pakistan campaign  and resolved to continue it till every penny of the plundered wealth was recovered and the plunderers were sent behind bars.

He said the government attitude so far clearly indicated that the ruler were not ready to initiate any step against corruption and some of the opposition leaders were also with the government on this issue. However, he said, the nation was determined not to tolerate the plunderers of the public money any more.

He said an ex-Chairman of NAB was on record that corruption to the tune of Rs. 4380 billion was taking place in the country annually. However, he said the nation wanted to see the criminals behind the bars.

He said the JI wanted a completely ruthless and transparent accountability in which not only the Prime Minister but Sirajul Haq was subjected to ruthless Ehtisab.  He said that all those who had secured heavy banks loans and then swallowed these, also deserved to be arrested and the written off loans recovered from them.

Siraj said that the JI would hold conferences against corruption at provincial level and stage a sit-in at Faisalabad on September 30.
