Int’l powers want to create Libya, Syria like situation in Pakistan: Siraj

ISLAMABAD: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has said that international powers want to create Libya and Syria like situation in Pakistan and some political parties act as their facilitators.

Pushing country into civil war was their common agenda, Sirajul Haq said while addressing Women Rally in Islamabad, adding the general elections were the solution to the prevailing crises. The PDM, the PPP and the PTI were pawns of the establishment, he further said.

Jamaat-e-Islami women wing organized the rally in connection of International Women Day. Addressing the event, Sirajul Haq also condemned the police torture on PTI workers in Lahore, saying holding peaceful rallies and meetings were the right of every political party as per the constitution.

“Shehbaz Speed has proved fatal for the country in 11-month and the so-called financial expert Ishaq Dar’s claims also cannot bring any improvement in economy.” If the performance of the former PTI government was bad, the incumbent one brought further disaster, he said, adding it had been that the troika could not bring any betterment.

Siraj said that majority of women in parliament were representatives of elite class as they never talked about the rights of common woman. He said women in Pakistan were deprived of from their basis rights. They were harassed at workplaces, in parks, in buses, he said, adding women did not feel protected even in federal capital.

He said the country’s development linked to the betterment of women as they made more than half of the total population. He said women must be given rights in properties. He said the culprits involved in incidents of honors killing and torture against women should be dealt with iron hand. He said Islam guarantees rights to women but the rulers were reluctant to ensure women their basis rights.

Hence, Sirajul Haq said, it was need of the hour that women must demand Islamic system in the country and should become the part of the Jamaat-e-Islami struggle to transform country into Islamic welfare state. He said the corrupt system deprived every citizen from his/her rights. He said the Jamaat-e-Islami would bring Islamic revolution with a democratic struggle.
