LAHORE: Ameer Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has said that the involvement of the same group in the killing of the Shia and the Sunni Ulema proved that the foreign powers had ganged up to harm the national solidarity but the government was not serious in foiling the conspiracy.

In a statement here on Friday, he said that the anti state elements were out to unleash sectarian clashes but the government seemed to be solely interested in showdown with the opponents and had not made any serious endeavour to control terrorism or its causes.

Syed Munawar Hasan expressed deep concern over the fresh clashes in North Waziristan. He said the terrorists working for the US and India in the garb of Taliban wanted to stop talks at all costs.

Therefore, as and when a statement from some state official regarding dialogue with the Taliban was issued, there was some major terrorist activity in some part of the country.

He counselled the government to keep aside its apprehensions and reservations and announce the date for the commencement of the talks. He warned that as long as the talks did not take off, the enemy forces would continue their intrigues.

He said that Pervez Musharraf’s opposition of talks with Taliban was an effort to prove his importance and loyalties to Washington.
