LAHORE: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Senator Sirajul Haq has said that the forces who backed the PTI to come to power feel embarrassment because of the non-serious attitude of the rulers to run the government affairs.

“Political parties always come to power in Pakistan with the support of hidden powers but this is the first time that rulers made their backers uncomfortable in such a short span of time,” added the JI Emir while talking to media at Mansoora on Sunday. He earlier addressed the JI Youth Southern Punjab Leaders Convention at the party headquarters.

Sirajul Haq said the mafias were ruling over the country for seven decades, plundering nation’s wealth and resources and stashing the money in foreign banks. The PTI, he said, which had claimed to be an agent of change proved itself an agent of mafias and status quo. The government, he said, damaged every sector ranging from economy to foreign policy and law and order, breaking all records of bad governance by the previous political and military regimes.

The rulers, said the JI chief, damaged the Kashmir cause and passed the time only through lip service in support of the Kashmir brethren who were under siege for four months. He warned rulers against the Indian designs, saying the time was running out to make some bold steps on Kashmir. He said New Delhi was bent upon blocking Pakistan’s waters from western rivers and turning the country into desert. If designs of the Modi government, he warned, were not thwarted immediately, the country’s sovereignty, God forbid, was in danger. But, he said, he had least expectations from the present rulers that they would act decisively against India. He said the JI had started the “Save Kashmir Movement” since the day the Modi government abrogated the special status of the held valley. The purpose of the movement, he added, was to express solidarity with the Kashmirirs and put pressure on the government and international community to shun its silence and help the people to exercise their right to self determination granted them under the UN resolutions.

The JI chief said the nature had gifted Pakistan with enormous resources and country’s youth was the most precious asset of the nation. The need was to utilize these gifts for the good cause, he said, adding the JI was striving hard to educate and activate the young generation to bring the real change in the country.
