WEB DESK: Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Senator Sirajul Haq has said that there is no difference between Bangladesh Prime Minister Hasina Wajid and the rulers in Islamabad regarding the executions of pro-Pakistan leaders in Bangladesh.
While addressing a big demonstration on the Shahrah-e-Quid-e-Azam to protest against the executions of BD JI and other parties pro-Pakistan leaders by the regime, he said the government of Hasina Wajid was executing Pakistan’s loyalists while the rulers in this country were acting as silent spectators. A large number of women and children also attended the rally.
He said that the youth and the aged people of Bangladesh had sacrificed their lives for this country but the rulers in Islamabad did not bother to raise this issue at international forums that showed their indifference and their deviation from country’s ideology. He said the ruler’s talk of a liberal Pakistan was tantamount to rubbing salt on the wounds of the martyrs of Kashmir and Bangladesh.
Sirajul Haq said that those who had been executed in Bangladesh had not been fighting for power. Love for Pakistan and its ideology was part of their faith and they had offered their lives for the love of this country.
He said that Pakistan was the second state coming into being after the state of Madina and its security and service was the highest form of Jehad, Those who had offered their lives for the sublime cause were Mujahideen.
Sirajul Haq said that Indian Prime Minister Modi had stated in Dhaka that he had reached Dhaka from Delhi with the Mukti Bahini to disintegrate Pakistan. He wondered why the Pakistani rulers could not approach the international court of justice against Modi and Hasina Wajid for their violation of the tripartite agreement in 1971.
He lashed out at the Pakistani rulers for their indifference over the executions of JI leaders in Bangladesh and the trials of Professor Ghulam Azam. Had the government taken up the matter with the international community and at international court of justice in time, the lives of some of these people could have been saved. Such a move by the rulers could have proved the rulers’ loyalty to those offering their lives for this country.
The JI chief strongly condemned President Mamoon Husain’s suggestion to the Ulema to create a room for interest on home financing and said such a frivolous proposal could not be expected from an aged man like the President. He said that next time, some other ruler could seek similar concession for drinking, and debauchery.
Addressing the gathering, JI Punjab chief Mian Maqsood Ahmed expressed the hope that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Army Chief General Raheel Sharif would end their silence over the oppression going on in Bangladesh. He said that Hasina Wajid was fighting India’s war and said that Islamabad should fight the war of Pakistan and foil the conspiracies against this country.
He said that in 1971, the Pakistan armed forces and the people of Pakistan were struggling to save the country and if that was a crime, the President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan at that time, were also committing crime, and a case against them could also be moved in some court any time. Deputy Secretary General JIP Dr Farid Ahmed Piracha, also addressed the rally.
