LAHORE: Acting Ameer of the Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan, Liaqat Baloch, has said that with every passing day, it became evident that the government which came into being on the slogan of change, had not been able to bring any change.

JI deputy chief Hafiz Mohammad Idrees, Deputy Secretary General Hafiz Sajid Anwar and JI Information Secretary Qaisar Sharif, were also present.

Addressing the participant of the JI central workshop for workers at Mansoora, he said that an exploitative system had been thrust on the country in the name of politics and democracy. The self styled and so- called political parties had not allowed the democratic system to flourish in the country. Instead of grooming their workers on political lines, the parties had been using their workers only for sycophancy and selfish interests. The people ruling the country for seventy years had not taken any interest in ameliorating the lot of the masses.

Liaqat Baloch said the JI was striving to change the exploitative system and bring about a truly democratic system in line with the teachings of the holy Quran and the Sunnah. He said the JI believed in bringing this change through truly political and democratic process and not by force.

The Acting JI chief said that after every few years, the establishment prepared a map for the future and then efforts were made through unseen forces to bring about the desired results. Elections were held and the people exercised their right of vote but the same old faces came up through different parties. He said that this game was being played in the country so far.

As a result of this maneuvering, he said, the country’s economy and its educational and judicial systems had reached the point of destruction. The incompetent and self seeking political elements had done an incalculable harm to the national harmony and unity in the pursuit of their selfish ends.

Liaqat Baloch said that a complete national unity was required to face Indian Prime Minister Modi’s jingoism but Prime Minister Imran Khan was hurting the national unity in his speeches.

The nation, he said, wanted an across the board accountability. He said had the rulers been sincere in accountability, they would have pushed the accountability process on transparent lines instead of making it controversial. They would have recovered the billions of the rupees from the plunderers. He asked why the remaining 436 persons named in the Panama leaks had not been brought to the dock.

Liaqat Baloch said that the Punjab government was not delivering but the Prime Minister was all praise for it. He said the burden of loans on the country was increasing but the government was seeking more loans against its promise of austerity and self reliance.
