JI demands probe against 436 other ‘Panama Leaks people’
Peshawar: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has appreciated the appearance of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif before the NAB court and urged the Supreme Court to initiate enquiry against 436 other people named in the Panama leaks to weed out corruption.
He was talking to the media after participating in a Religious Harmony Conference at Peshawar.
Sirajul Haq said that the progress and stability of Pakistan necessitated supremacy of the constitution and the rule of law. He said that in a country where institution and the courts were helpless before individuals and parties, only anarchy and disruption would prevail.
He said that from the very first day, JI had been demanding the accountability of all the corrupt people and of those who had plundered public money and the banks as the accountability of only an individual or a few persons would not help achieve the objective. He said the people who had properties in London, Dubai, and billions in Swiss banks should be made to bring their ill-gotten wealth to the country. He said the JI was striving for a clean and green Pakistan, and urged the masses to join the JI in its struggle.
Earlier, addressing the moot on Religious Harmony, the JI chief said that a Muslim could not be biased or extremist. He said that one could not be a Muslim unless he believed in all the Prophets of Allah. He said that Islam enjoined protection of the non-Muslims and also religious freedom for them.
He said that the non- Muslims or the Pakistani community had a great role in the progress and development of the country. He said he had already proposed in the Senate that the non- Muslims be called Pakistani community instead of a minority as it would ensure them due respect.
Sirajul Haq said the JI was striving for the supremacy of the constitution and the merit in the country. He said that the country’s politics, democracy and economy were being held a hostage and that was why there were talks of clash of the institutions. It was a pity, he said, that laws and rulers were being changed to serve the interest of individuals.
He said the JI wanted end of exploitation and provision of equal facilities of education, health and jobs for the rich as well as the poor.[related_post themes="text" id="321403"]
