KARACHI - Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Sindh chief Dr Meraj-ul-Huda Siddiqui has said the upcoming workers’ convention will provide a base for a renewed struggle to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state.

Addressing a meeting of JI Karachi zonal heads at Idara Noor-e-Haq, Siddiqui said it would be the largest convention in the history of Sindh as well as Karachi. He said the event would pave the way for success of the JI in the next general election in 2018. He urged the JI office-bearers to cement their relations with the Allah Almighty and invite people to join the movement of the JI.

The JI leader stressed the need for elimination of corruption from the society. He said that “Minus Corruption” was the only formula for the survival of Pakistan in general and Sindh in particular. He said that mega projects like the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor would be useless without eliminating corruption from the society.

On this occasion, he hailed the leadership of Turkey for pursuing the cause of the Muslim Ummah. He thanked Turkish President Recep Tayyap Erdogan for announcing scholarships for Pakistani students.  JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman said that workers of the JI had rendered a lot of sacrifices and remained steadfast against the fascist elements ruling the city for decades.


 He said it was high time for JI activists to come forward and lead the city.
