Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has said that certain forces, at the behest of foreign powers, were creating uncertain conditions in the country in order to wind up the democratic process.
He has impressed upon the patriotic parties in the country to realize the gravity of the situation and work out a common line of action to meet the situation.
It is the prime duty of the patriotic political and religious parties to agree on one point agenda of and pressurize the government to immediately set up a care taker government and announce the elections schedule, he added.
While talking to different delegations at Mansoora on Wednesday, he warned that if the country was derailed from the path of democracy again, it would be too hard to put it back on the track and the things would go still worse.
Syed Munawar Hasan said that someone would emerge at the national scene all of a sudden, and make threatening statements to change the system. It could be easily understood that there was a conspiracy against the country at the bidding of foreign forces, he added.
In fact, he said, the US planned to pull out of Afghanistan in 2014, but prior to that, it wanted to have full control over Pakistan’s politics and government, and to achieve this end, it had activated its agents.
He said, the gang of four ruling the country, the PPP, the MQM, the ANP and the PMLQ had completely disappointed the masses due to their bad governance, corruption, price hike and lawlessness, and the masses were determined to settle score with them in the elections.
Sensing this, the foreign masters of these rulers had risen up to create instability here. However, the country would not afford anarchy as the sovereignty and solidarity of the country was already threatened.
Syed Munawar Hasan said the threats of converting Islamabad into Tehrir Square and the call to the armed forces to support the revolution, indicated this was a conspiracy to put off the elections and roll back democracy. The MQM, which had been a government ally for years, was also joining hands with Dr Tahirul Qadri’s at the bidding of its foreign masters, and had also invited the armed forces to support the move.
He however said, the masses won’t tolerate the armed forces’ interference because armed forces’ meddling in politics in the past had pushed the country to the present situation. Therefore, the people expected the armed forces to restrict themselves to their professional duties and keep aloof from politics.
