LAHORE: Acting Ameer of the Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Liaqat Baloch, has deplored the attitude of the federal government resulting in celebration of Eidul Fitr on two different days in the country. He was talking to the media after offering Eidul Fitr at Mansoora mosque.

The JI acting chief said that the federal government had handled the religious issue of Eid in a non serious manner and instead of making serious efforts for celebration of Eidul Fitr on the same day all over the country, the government had played a negative role due to which the two Eids were celebrated.

Liaqat Baloch also slated the sky high prices of the food items and the necessities of life during the month of Ramazan and on Eid. He said the JI would stage an Awami march against price hike, unemployment and IMF slavery in the city on June 16.

Meanwhile, a Christian delegation led by Father Francis Nadeem called on the JI acting chief and greeted him on the occasion of Eid. Talking to the delegation, Liaqat Baloch said that tolerance and respect for different views was a pre-requisite for survival of humanity and peaceful co existence.

The JI acting chief deplored that even during the month of Ramazan and on Eid day, the brutalities of the Zionists and the Hindus continued in Palestine and Held Kashmir. He said that in fact, the colonial powers were devoid of human feelings and values.
