SIALKOT

Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Ameer Sirajul Haq strongly condemned the Indian aggression on Sialkot Working Boundary and Line of Control and killings of innocent civilians, asking the government to take a bold and strong stance against Indian brutality.

The government should respond to India in befitting manner and should not tolerate any aggression on the borders.

JI Ameer Sirajul Haq stated this while addressing a donors’ conference held on Monday. The Jamaat chief emphasised that the JI would continue playing its role for finding out peaceful solutions to all issues. He reiterated the JI resolve to work for transforming Pakistan into a welfare state as envisaged by founder of the nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He urged all the politicians to shun their political differences and united for national interest to steer the country out of the prevailing crises.

He said that in past almost all the politicians had disappointed the masses now it was the turn of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) to form government after coming power with the power of votes of the masses. He pointed out that different political parties had now become “property parties” and leaders of all such parties were inheriting their political assets to their children. The JI ameer said that the political parties busy making tall claims of democracy did not have democracy in their very own ranks.

India flayed for aggression on LoC

NOORPUR THAL

Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Secretary General Liaqat Baloch has condemned the Indian aggression on Line of Control and the working boundary and demanded the government to raise the issue at all international forms effectively and forcefully. He was addressing a public gathering here. Irresponsible act of Indian government raising alarm bells for prospects of peace and tranquillity in the otherwise volatile region. The growing tension caused by Indian provocative policy, is not good sign as confrontation between two nuclear powers could lead mass destruction, he warned.

He said that if the Indian premier thought that the Pakistan would give up its claim on Kashmir due to his hollow threats, he was gravely mistaken.  “I would advise Indian Prime Minister Narendera Modi to stop amassing arms and ammunition worth trillions, and instead spend this money on the uplift of the millions in India who went without food and clothing and had to spend their nights on footpath’, he said.

Liaqat Baloch said it was pity that the rulers in Islamabad had demonstrated cowardice in the face of ongoing Indian excesses across border instead of giving a benefiting response.  JI Khushab District Ameer Malik Muhammad Waris Jasra and former JI Ameers Malik Tanzeerul Hassan Awan and Malik Abdullah Jasar also spoke on the occasion.  While addressing the press conference at Noor Pur Thal Press Club, Liaqat Baloch said that Bhasha Dam was now just a lolli pop as no practical work had been started even eight years after its in inauguration. He urged the government to start work on Kalabagh dam to get rid of the menace of loadshedding.

To a question, he said that the PTI leadership should up lift the province of the KPK that was mired in host

of problems.

JI Secretary General said that sit-ins had caused serious economic set back to the country.

“The Country will be steered out of problems through hard work and struggle under the leader ship of JI Chief Sirajul Haq”, he added.
