RAWALPINDI: Reminding the rulers that nation would not tolerate any surrender before New Delhi on Kashmir, Jamaat-e-Islami Amir Senator Sirajul Haq has urged the government to devise a decisive policy for the freedom of the occupied area from India.

“Surrender on Kashmir will be tantamount to sell the country’s sovereignty and stability to New Delhi. Kashmir is jugular vein of Pakistan,” he said while chairing a meeting of JI AJK Majlise Shoora here on Tuesday. JI leaders Ameerul Azim, Liaqat Baloch, Dr Khalid Mahmood, Abdur Rasheed Turabi were among the participants.

Senator Siraj regretted the PTI failed to develop a decisive foreign policy for the Kashmir’s independence and the people of AJK were worried about the fact that the rulers abandoned them.

The decision to give a status of province to Gilgit-Biltastan was made without consent of the Kashmiri leadership which could create a potential damage to Kashmir cause in future, he said, adding the PTI also used the same old tactics to win the polls in GB thus putting a big question mark on the prime minister claim about calling himself the ambassador of Kashmir.

The PDM could also learn a lesson from the election exercise in the GB that the country could not be put on the track without election reforms, he added.

“The political parties should sit together for introducing election reforms.”

He said the political parties were acting as family clubs and there was no concept of holding intra-party election in Pakistan, a key need to strengthen democracy in the country.

Sirajul Haq said the PTI disappointed the masses and failed to introduce basic reforms in two and half years. He said the people were no more ready to listen to the tall claims of the rulers and wanted a system based on the true democratic values.

He said the JI had already started a movement against the corrupt practices of the ruling elite with objective to transform Pakistan into an Islamic welfare state.

In this connection, he added, rallies and mass meetings were being organized in different cities. He invited the people to be part of the JI struggle to put the country on track.
