LAHORE - Jamaat-e-Islami and Jamiat Ulma-e-Pakistan have condemned the Indian prime minister’s visit to Pakistan.

The JI took out a rally against Modi arrival in Lahore while JUP chief Pir Ijaz Hashmi in a statement said that the national interests of Pakistan including Kashmir were being sacrificed for personal friendship with the Indian premier.

Addressing a JI demonstration, party chief Senator Sirajul Haq questioned prime minister Nawaz Sharif what made him invite “a Hindu fanatic who had an active role in the fall of Dhaka and was the mastermind behind New Delhi’s designs and activities against Pakistan. JI protestors raised slogans Nawaz Sharif, shouting “India Ka Jo Yar hey, hey, Ghadar Hey, Ghaddar Hey—the friend of India is traitor of Pakistan.”

Sirajul Haq said that Modi, as Chief Minister of Indian state of Gujrat, was responsible for the burning to death large number of Muslims in a train. Modi had begun the genocide of Kashmiris and intensified Indian forces attack at the Line of Control and the working boundary. Modi had the key role in the demolition of the historic Babri Mosque at whose site a Hindu temple was being built now, he added. He said the government in Islamabad had ample evidence of India’s involvement in bomb blasts and subversive activities in Balochistan, and abductions from the province.

“Why you (Nawaz Sharif) invited Modi and what message you wants to send to the Kashmiris?” asked Siraj. “Pakistan’s Prime Minister stands with Modi and Pakistani nation stands with the Kashmiris. Nawaz Sharif rubbed salt on the wounds of the Kashmiris.”
