Lahore: Ameer, Jamat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Siraj-ul- Haq has said it is very unfortunate that the ruling class had never accepted the court verdicts against it.

While talking to the media outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday, he said that the court decision in the Panama leaks had awakened the national conscience against corruption. In fact, he said, the Panama leaks had been the divine rod which was yet to strike many heads after Nawaz Sharif.

He said that the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif had not solved the problem and there was need to audit the account of other 436 persons named in the Panama leaks.

“The nation had got an golden chance to eradicate corruption and if it missed the chance, accountability of the plunderers would never be possible”, he added.

He said in fact it was the responsibility of the political parties to help weed out corruption by refusing to issue party tickets to the people notorious for corruption. However, he said, if the party leadership itself was corrupt, such a move could not be expected. Nevertheless, he said, the common political workers were averse to corruption.

He said that the JI would continue its fight against corruption in the courts, on roads and streets and also in the elected houses. He said he had called a meeting of the JI senior leadership at Mansoora on Sept. 14 where the party would reaffirm its pledge to continue its drive against corruption with new a vigour and zeal.
