Tehrik-e-Jaferia Pakistan (TJP) believed in rule of law, supremacy of Constitution and undiluted democratic order for the protection of life, honour and property of citizens in the country, declared Tehrik-e-Jafria Pakistan Chief Allama Sajid Ali Naqvi here on Monday.

Addressing a Press Conference here, he said that the rule of law was inevitable for maintaining peace and tranquillity in a country but unfortunately there was no “law” in the country to ensure justice. He said that peace could not be maintained in a country where death penalty to the killers was abolished. He further said that appeals of 68 terrorists had been rejected by the courts but they were yet to be hanged.

Replying to a question regarding negotiations with Taliban, he expressed his dissatisfaction regarding the progress in negotiation by both the government and TTP teams. He said that Tehrik-e-Jaferia wished and strived for peaceful atmosphere in the country whether it could be achieved through negotiations or otherwise. He, however, said that murderers of innocent should be given deterrent punishment, saying that he could not understand why the murderers were being provided shelter. He further said that 33 intelligence agencies of the country had miserably failed to prevent terrorist activities in the country. Had these agencies performed their duties honestly and efficiently, suicide and firing incidents in Islamabad and other sensitive places will not have taken place. Replying to a question, he said that Tehrik-e-Jaferia had never accepted Martial Law or supported any dictatorial regime in the country. Unfortunately no democratic government in the country had been “delegated full powers in the country to run its affairs due to which decision of the apex courts were not being implemented, he added

He further said that a conspiracy was being hatched to launch negative and unfounded propaganda against the TJP by a certain group of media and others which was dangerous. He demanded effective measures to prevent the murders of innocent Muslims particularly those belonging to Shia Community. Prominent among those who were present on the occasion included Syed Hussain Ali Shah President District Hussaini Alliance, Zawar Liaqat Ali Khanno, Syed Ali Naqi Shah, Farrukh Abbas Naqvi, Ghulam Hussain Jewan and Malik Asad Ali Awan.

Later, He offered ‘fateh’ over the demise of young son (Malik Ghulam Shabbir Awan) of former MPA Malik Muhamad Wazir Awan and expressed his heartfelt sympathies with the family.
