Karachi: The coming by-election in NA-246 is a chance for Karachiites to change their fate for good and say No to the terror and violence and began a new era of peace and prosperity, said Amir of Jamaat e Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq at Karachi Press Club here Saturday.
He said Karachi during last 24 years has only seen fire and blood. He said Karachiites gave love and respect to MQM leader Altaf Hussain in last two decades, but what they got in return. He said 24 years ago Karachi faced shortage of water, public transport, jobs and civic facilities and today Karachi also witnesses the same shortage of water, public transport, jobs and civic facilities. He asked what Karachiites got for their love and respect. He said sadly during this period this city has added the words of extortion and gunned-packed bodies to our vocabulary. He said now even the children of remote parts of Pakistan know that extortion and gunned-packed bodies are a thriving business in Karachi. He said the people of Karachi would have to come forward to change this sad scenario.
He said previous day the rally of their candidate on NA-246 Rashid Naseem was attacked in Karachi, but they would not reply in the same currency. He said they would continue to show their love, tolerance and patience. He said they do not believe in replying an abuse with an abuse and a bullet with a bullet.
He said his party is utilizing its energies to organize the voters of Karachi so that they can defeat the champions of terror and violence with the peaceful power of their vote.
To a question, he said Qauid e Azam had asked at least five times the founder of the JI, Syed Abul A’la Maududi to tell the nation through radio speeches about the Islamic system to the Pakistani nation. He said there are at least 114 citations in which Qauid e Azam had promised that Pakistan would be an Islamic welfare state on the pattern of the state of Medina. He said there is not different between the vision of Qauid e Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and the manifesto of Jamaat e Islami.
