KARACHI - Leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazlur Rehman (JUI-F) on Monday said that the residents of operation-hit areas had keep the constitutional right to move anywhere in Pakistan. They criticised the MQM for playing dual role by enjoying perks in the government and simultaneously playing a role of Opposition by supporting the call for strike. The internally displaced persons are Pakistanis and they should be helped on humanitarian ground, urged Professor Ghafoor Ahmed, JIs deputy chief. He said it were the Sindhis who welcomed the migrants from India in late 1940s and 1950s. We dont say Sindh is an orphanage. But, it is tragic to adopt a negative approach towards the IDPs because they are too Pakistanis and now they are facing multiple problems in Malakand Agency and its surrounding areas, he added. Ahmed said that Pakistan was being entrapped into internal and external threats and conspiracies, and the unity of the nation was must to counter and defeat these threats and machinations. PML-N provincial acting president Salim Zia said that MQMs politics transcended its comprehension because they were in the government, but they support the call for a strike that was against the government policy. When any other party calls for shutdown strike, MQM raises hue and cry that commercial shutdown will cause colossal financial losses, but for the last two days they have virtually held Karachi hostage by strikes, he added. Zia urged the MQM leadership to reconsider its policy about the IDPs because no Pakistani can be denied for entry into any part of Pakistan. He said that MQM chief Altaf Hussain should return to country instead of leading the MQM through remote control from London. He said MQMs Karachi-based leadership couldnt take right decisions without Altaf Hussain in Karachi. To a question, he said that PML-N had no reservations about the IDPs stay in Punjab. JI Karachi chapter chief, Mohammad Hussain Mehanti, said that more than 15 vehicles were put on fire in the areas that are the strongholds of MQM. He said that the MQM was involved in the incidents of arsons although the JSQM called for strike. Karachi is a multilingual City as different communities are residing in it. We welcome the IDPs from the NWFP, he said and asked the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take suo motu notice of the denial of entry of the IDPs in Sindh. JUI-Fs Aslam Ghauri claimed that conspiracy to stir riots in Karachi was hatched in the US and the conspirators wanted to make Karachi a centre of the US intervention. He said it was tragic that those who supported the operation in Malakand Agency and other parts of the NWFP were opposing the IDPs. To a question, Ghafoor Ahmed said that the IDPs original areas of living are the coldest areas of Pakistan and they would not permanently settle in Sindh where scorching heat remains intolerable for many.
