KARACHI - To commemorate the Pakistan Day 2014, Jamaat-i-Islami Karachi organised a “Tahafuz e Pakistan” convention with the theme revival of the Two-Nation Theory, here on Sunday.

Tens of thousands of people from every walk of life gathered at the ‘Nishtar Park’ to show their interest and support for the Two-Nation Theory. Addressing the convention, JI Pakistan leader Munawar Hassan in his address said that this is the spirit which pushed thousands of people to come forward and participate in the convention. He praised the services of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and said that during last six decades, selfish leaders took the country backwards in the name of democracy as well as dictatorship.

“If Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would honour his mandate and promises we would support him as we supported PML-N, while he was moving forward for talks with the Taliban elements.”

JI Amir said that during the tenure of PPP, their leaders remained engaged in plundering national wealth and usurping rights of the poor masses.  After enjoying five long years of rule in center and provinces, now the PPP has started to chant the muntra of military action. He also urged Nawaz Sharif to tackle seriously those Ministers attempting to sabotage talks with the TTP.

He urged the government to revise the foreign policy in the interest of Pakistan. He also urged the government to get out of the so called war on terror and to refuse the new world order, being imposed on the world by the United States.  He also raised the point of profit and interest and asked Nawaz Sharif to get rid of interest-based system. JI Amir also said that Nawaz Sharif did not get the mandate for friendship with India without resolving the issue of Kashmir.  He made it clear that JI is not against friendship with India and any other country but betraying the people of Kashmir would not be allowed.

Renowned intellectual, scholar and JI leader Prof Ibrahim said that Pakistan was established to run the system according to the teachings of Holy Quran and Sunnah.

He said that peace and prosperity are the ultimate blessings of the Islamic system.

Meraj-ul-Huda Siddiqui, JI Sindh Amir stated the day remind us that Muslim Ummah possesses a distinguished identity from the entire global community.

Engineer Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman, JI Karachi Amir, highlighted the sacrifices of the people for freedom of Pakistan and the ideology of “Laillaha illLalah” behind the establishment of Pakistan.

He criticised the minor group which trigged the problems, society was facing in the present era.
