ISLAMABAD: Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Emir Sirajul Haq has demanded of the government to announce interest-free budget, providing relief to the poor.

Talking to media here on Friday, Sirajul Haq reiterated the call for free and transparent elections and said the solution to the prevailing crises lied in providing opportunity to the masses to elect their representatives.

Later, the leadership of Kashmir Hurriyat Conference also held meeting with him. Those who met with Sirajul include APHC Convener Mehmood Ahmed Sagar, Convener Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir Ghulam Muhammad Safi, Emir JI Azad Jammu and Kashmir Dr. Khalid Mahmood Khan, former Emir JI AJK Abdul Rashid Turabi, President Alkhidamt Foundation Azad Kashmir Raja Jehangir Khan, Secretary General JI AJK Tanveer Anwar Khan, Secretary General APHC Sheikh Abdul Mateen and others. They condemned the Zhob suicide attack and expressed solidarity with the JI leader.

Sirajul Haq thanked China, Saudi Arabia, Turkiye and Egypt on boycotting the G-20 Tourism Working Group meeting in Sri Nagar and expressing solidarity with the people of Occupied Kashmir. He said India held the meeting by making hostage the people of the area and under the shadows of fear and guns. He said the government should host a joint meeting of G-20 and OIC on Kashmir.

The JI chief said the PDM and the PPP had taken out long-marches against inflation but they never talked about the issue after coming into power though the prices of basic need items went 100 times up in one year of their rule. He said the PTI destroyed the country, deceiving the masses in the name of change. He said only Islamic system could bring real change and the JI was the only party which was struggling for it. He said it had been proved that the PDM, the PPP and the PTI could not bring any betterment as they all failed to deliver despite getting repeated opportunities to come to power.

Sirajul Haq said the ruling elite made the country laughing stock in entire world. Their fight was centered at self-service and they hardly bothered about the problems of common man who was burning in the fire of inflation and lawlessness. He said that it was in the hands of the people now that whether they agreed to keep the status quo intact or throw it out with the power of vote.
