Lahore: Ameer Jamaat –i-Islami Senator Siraj-ul-Haq has said that fraud is being committed with the people of Pakistan in the name of accountability as across the board and ruthless action against corrupt mafia is need of hour.

Addressing the last session of the five day training workshop of the JI workers at Mansoora, he said those who were sitting in the government should also come under the radar of accountability along with those who belong to opposition parties.

He said that the corruption and nepotism were plaguing the country for years which also took away even the right to live from the poor and middle class. He said people could not afford basic necessities of life including health and education of their children as the corrupt mafia looted the country with both hands for decades leaving nothing in public kitty. Therefore, he said, it was need of the hour that all corrupt should be held accountable before the law without any discrimination.

Expressing concern over bad economy of the country, Senator Siraj said the PTI badly failed to fulfill its promises made during the July 2018’s polls. Saying the people were deceived in the name of “change” in the general elections, Siraj declared the Imran Khan’s government as the continuation of the Musharraf, PPP and PML-N’s governments.

Thousands of youth were without jobs as the unemployment ratio was increasing with every day passing, he said, adding the skyrocketing inflation, bad government, corrupt police system and nepotism were all unstoppable under the nose of those who claimed to bring revolution in the country.

The government, said the JI chief, had failed to support the people of Kashmir who were under worst siege for more than a month. Mere claims that the government would fight till last breath for Kashmir cause was not enough as practical and brave steps were required to help the innocent besieged people of the held region, he said.

“A Muslim should not act as silent spectator when he sees injustice in society and this is the lesson we learnt from the incident of Karbla,” said Siraj.
