The Jamaat e Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan has said that if the masses wanted to get rid of price spiral, load shedding and plunder of the rulers, they must change their voting pattern. According to press release issued by JI, addressing to a civic reception he said if the people wanted a change they should reject the corrupt people and their parties and elect patriotic and honest people. He said that if the people vote for those who do not have Pakistan in their agenda and the situation would not change, he added. Syed Munawar Hasan said the US President was on a visit to India these days and the two countries had entered into trade and defense pacts. India, he said, claimed to be a great democracy, which was a farce. Democracy implied power sharing by the masses but in India, over a dozen separatist movements were going on while in Kashmir, India was committing state terrorism. The JI chief said, India was trying to destabilize the Pakistan through an open interference in Baluchistan. There was evidence of Indias distributing arms and money in Baluchistan. To a quest ion about MMAs revival, Syed Munawar Hasan said a non- political, non-electoral alliance on the pattern of the Milli Yakjehti Council (MYC) was the need of the hour in order to wipe out sectarianism and killings in the country. However, he said, the MMAs revival was out of question when one of the MMA parties was part of the present government which had allowed open US interference in this country. The reception was hosted by the Anjuman e Shahyarn e Lahore. The Anjuman chief Rana Nazrur Rehman and Dr. Farid Ahmed Piracha, also addressed the gathering.
