F.P. Report

TIMERGARA:  Jamaat-i-Islami chief and senator Siraj ul Haq on Saturday said that only one accused out of 437 in Panama Leak case has been dealt with by the Supreme Court of Pakistan while cases of 436 were yet to be opened.

He was addressing a public gathering at Chakdara in Lower Dir which was also addressed by Kp finance minister Muzafar Syed, JI provincial chief Mushtaq Ahmad Khan, deputy chief Noor ul Haq, former MPA Dr Zakirullah Khan, former MNA Maulana Asadullah and others. The JI workers from all parts of Adenzai and area elders attended the event.

Siraj said that keeping silence on release of Dr Aafia Siddique, execution of Mumtaz Qadari in Pakistan and JI leaders in Bangladesh and celebrating ‘Divali’ with Hindus had sunk the boat of Mian Nawaz Sharief. He said the rulers had been plundering national wealth for decades and it was the right time for the nation to stand up against those corrupt rulers.

He said that General Pervez Musharaf owned Rs 40 million before coming into power but now he had Rs 2 billion as asset. He said the JI wanted imposition of true Islamic sharia law in the country where rulers considered themselves as ‘khadim’ of masses instead of being their masters. “We have launched a corruption-free Pakistan campaign and it needs public support,” Siraj said, adding that corruption had been damaging the nation’s foundation.

The JI chief demanded of the federal government include Chakdara to Shandor road in CPEC and construct a railway line from Khunjrab to Malakand.

Earlier the JI provincial chief Mushtaq Ahmad Khan said they would not let anyone to amend or abolish the articles 62 and 63 of the constitution. He said there had been no place in Pakistan for liberalism and secularism. He said the JI would win majority of seats in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in next general election.
