Government should complete inquiry of Lahore incident within 72 hours, Siraj


Peshawar: Amir Jamat-e-Islami Sirajul Haq while condemning the killing of eight persons in Lahore on Wednesday demanded of government to complete the inquiry within seventy two hours and punish those are responsible for such a brutal act.

Addressing a press conference Amir Jamiat said that Lahore incident has badly exposed the good governance claims of Punjab government as violence against political workers was worst kind of that unleashed in dictatorship. He expressed solidarity with Dr Tahirul Qadri.

Regarding Waziristan Operation, Amir Jamat-e-Islami said government would be responsible for the results of its un-lateral decision of launching operation in Waziristan which he said once again compelled thousands of tribal people to leave their homes and live a miserable life in soaring heat of June.

” all political parties had mandated Nawaz Sharif to solve the issue through dialogue but now no one is aware what happened to dialogue process and what thing has compelled the federal government to start operation in Waziristan. Government should have taken all the political parties in to confidence about operation in Waziristan which it failed to do therefore now federal government would alone be responsible for the results,” he observed.

Giving tribal people assurance of full support from his party, Siraj said JI and its welfare organization Al-Khidmat Foundation will leave no stone un-turn to provide relief to the tribal people.

KPK government, he said has released 350 million for assistance and relief of IDP and further help would also be provided.

He also appealed to militants to give up armed struggle and fighting with government and join national sphere for constitutional and democratic struggle of their agenda as through violence they could not implement Shariat. answering yet another question, Siraj said that present government has the mandate to rule the country for five years but for this purpose rulers would have to change their behaviour and those taking about sacrifice of the government are not correct in their stance.
