QUETTA: Jamaat e Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq has said that the current political crisis had been created by the rulers and if they did not correct their direction, it could end up into a tragedy.
Speaking as chief guest in the “Hal Ahwal” programme of the Quetta Press Club on Saturday, he said that the terrorists sitting in the corridors of powers could prove more dangerous for the country than the terrorists hiding in mountains.
Siraj said that by refusing to appear before the National Accountability Bureau, Nawaz Sharif had given the message that he did not recognize any court. He said that NAB had summoned Nawaz and his two sons but by not complying with the order, the ousted Prime Minister had adopted the path of lawlessness which was not acceptable.
He said the general public had expected Nawaz Sharif to bow to the court verdict but instead he had started hurling threats to the courts. He said that Nawaz Sharif should have been thankful to the court for sending him home because he could have been sent to the jail as well.
He said that from the very first day, the JI had been demanding accountability of the governments of the PPP, Pervez Musharraf and the Muslim League. He said the country so far had been ruled by the Muslim League, the PPP and the military generals and all of them must be brought to accountability as there was no sacred cow and all were equal before the law.
He said that the rulers of the country had plundered billions and built properties in London, Dubai and other costly world capitals with their unlawful wealth. On the other hand, the common in the country was deprived of basic facilities of education, health and shelter. He urged the Supreme Court to devise a mechanism for the accountability of all and for the recovery of their ill gotten wealth to the country.
The JI chief said it was unfortunate that there was a cry to abolish articles 62 and 63 of the constitution on the ground that it was difficult to be Sadiq and Ameen. “It is a matter of shame that in several non- Muslim countries, it was a precondition that the people’s representatives must be men of character. But the rulers in this country were out to drop these articles. It seemed the rulers had not learnt any lesson from the history,” he concluded.[related_post themes="text" id="319460"]
