Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq has said that telling a lie is a crime whether it is committed in a mosque or an assembly and there is no immunity for that.
According to media cell of JI Lahore, Sirajul Haq said that the arguments in the apex court during the day were an unending tale of exchange of gifts valuing over Rs 550 millions, and remarked that only a state could make such a gift to the other state.
He said that the ruling family had been busy only in money making during its current tenure.
The JI chief called for evolving a mechanism of accountability and offered himself for that. However, he said, that in a civilised and democratic society, accountability began from the top.
Therefore, the process should begin from the Prime Minster and should engulf the opposition leaders named in the Panama leaks besides those getting their bank loans written off.
He said that the masses wanted a corruption free Pakistan as corruption and Pakistan could not go together any more. He said that Prime Minister’s counsel was a competent lawyer but was fighting a weak case and the image of the government had been lowed much.
He said it had also come to surface that the stamp papers for the property deal made by the Prime Minister’s family had been purchased much later which raised more questions.
