Govt is doing nothing on Indian threats: Siraj

F.P. Report

Islamabad: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami Senator Sirajul Haq has said that Indian Prime Minister Modi was hurling threats of war to Pakistan every day but the Pakistani government felt content simply by issuing one or two statements.

He was addressing a workshop for the provincial JI leadership from northern Punjab here on Monday.

Sirajul Haq said that the government should have immediately called a joint session of the parliament and convened an All Parties Conference (APC) to take the nation into confidence and to ensure adequate defense of the county and its solidarity. He said that the involvement of all the political parties in the national defense would have sent a clear message to the enemy.  Chief of the JI northern Punjab, Dr Tariq Saleem, also spoke on the occasion.

The JI chief said that for the first time, India had been invited as chief guest at the OIC moot and the Indian Foreign Minister would be addressing the Muslim World’s representatives. He said, this was a matter of shame and all Muslim countries seemed to be under India’s pressure. It was an irony that the country against whom there were all the complaints, would be occupying the chair of the special guest at the OIC. He said that Pakistan should have boycott ted the OIC moot in protest. 

Commenting on the internal situation of the country, Sirajul Haq said that the PTI had talked of the state of Madina. He said that the masses who were tired of price hike, rise in POL prices and inflated power bills, were talking of the  Madina state in a derogatory sense, making a mockery of it. 

Sirajul Haq impressed upon the NAB to proceed against the accused while remaining with the limits of the laws. He said that arresting someone without solid evidence and violating the sanctity of the house was unjustified. He said that violating the sanctify of the house caused hatred and provincial prejudices.  He said that every Pakistani wanted accountability but the government was making accountability a target of politics.

 The JI chief that the nobody was happy over the working of the government so far and hatred was increasing in the provinces against the centre. He said that the provincial prejudices would harm national unity and unanimity. He disapproved the arrest of the Sindh Assembly Speaker in Islamabad and said this was an improper step.
