LAHORE: Ameer, Jamat-e-Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq has said while the armed terrorists had killed around 65,000 Pakistanis, economic terrorism had crushed two hundred million people in the country.
Addressing the teachers and heads of JI educational institutions at Mansoora, he said that the world’s largest steel mills in Karachi had failed only due to the corruption and bad-governance of the rulers as its staff had not been paid salaries for the last nine months. Besides, WAPDA, PTCL and several banks were also facing difficulties.
He said the country’s youth was disappointed due to the corruption of the rulers who had taken the entire nation as hostage. He asked the masses if they would continue worshipping these political pundits forever and whether there was any value for honesty, integrity and truth in this state. Sirajul Haq said that a minister in the US had to sell his house for the treat meant of his child whereas the Panama leaks case had been continuing for a whole year. He said the Lowari tunnel had been started in 1976 but had not been completed so far. He said that corruption was the biggest issue in the country and it had also led to terrorism. He said that a single party had been ruling Sindh since long but the masses in Sindh were still living in the stone age. The JI chief said that articles 62 and 63 of the constitution had been included to ensure that corrupt people did not return to the assemblies. He only wished that the Election Commission had implemented these articles.
Sirajul Haq said he wished that the Supreme Court decision was against corruption and in the interest of the masses. He said if the present generation failed to build a corruption free Pakistan, the coming generation would not forgive then.
Referring to the new US President Donald Trump, the JI chief said “some people are trying to harass us”. However, he said, he was sure that heavens would not fall, and added that there was also a possibility that some good might come out. However, he repeated his suggestion that the Muslim world should have a Common market, common military and common educational system.
