MULTAN-Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Naib Ameer Liaqat Baloch has disclosed that the JI is going to launch an Awami March Tehreek from Faisalabad from June 16 against price hike, unemployment and IMF’s slavery.

Talking to the media here on Wednesday, he made it clear that the JI would welcome opposition’s public-friendly initiatives but it would not become part of any opposition alliance. He said that the masses were drowning in the tsunami of price hike, inflation and poverty but the rulers did nothing to save them. “Now the people have no other option but to take to the roads and stage protest,” he added.

He said that the IMF-imposed teams enforced the orders of their foreign masters on Pakistan’s economy in broad daylight but the rulers did nothing except for playing the role of mere onlookers. He pointed out that the continuous hike in dollar price caused serious losses to national economy besides brining the investments down considerably. He said that the government looked helpless in this situation.

Referring to the murder of a 10-year old girl in Islamabad, he said that it was a great tragedy and same tragedies took place across the country. “It is a horrible sign of a decaying and declining society. The killers are the worst kind of criminals and they should be given stiff sentences,” he demanded. He asked the national leadership and policy makers to focus on correction of social norms.

Answering a question, he said that the USA was going to imposed a new naval war in Gulf to stay in the region after defeat in Afghanistan. He warned that Iran Saudi Arab escalation would bring horrible results. He strongly condemned Hothi missile attacks from Yemen. He demanded the heads of all Muslim states to unite in Saudi Arabi and issue a joint declaration for the unity of Ummah.
