LAHORE Defence Council Pakistan chairman and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (S) chief Maulana Samiul Haq on Monday demanded that after the Shamsi Airbase, the American forces should also vacate the Shahbaz Airbase and other facilities. While talking at Aiwan-e-Waqt, TheNation and Nawa-i-Waqt forum, the JUI-S chief said the Pakistani government had been lying to the people about the correct state of the Shamsi Airbase. Samiul Haq also met TheNation and Nawa-i-Waqt Editor-in-Chief Majid Nizami and presented him a set of his books. However, he added the governments acknowledgement of Shamsi Airbase has established the fact that drones are flying with the prior information of the Pak rulers. Maulana Sami said that he and his colleagues had already filed a petition in the Supreme Court pleading to fix the responsibility of loss of lives of around 30,000 civilians and members of the armed forces in the drone attacks. Alleging that Pervez Musharraf sold the countrys interests to the Americans, he maintained that Salala Checkpost episode occurred due to the policies of Musharraf. Appreciating the government for get vacating the Shamsi Airbase, blocking Nato supplies and boycotting the Bonn conference, he said that President Zardari and the government should stick to its demands.
