Baloch asks rulers not to act as brokers in Davis case


LAHORE – Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Secretary General Liaqat Baloch on Monday asked rulers not to act as brokers for payment of blood money to families of three men killed by US national Raymond Davis and show a sense of national dignity by providing justice to them.
Addressing a Seerat Conference at the Wifaqi Colony organised by the JI Lahore chapter on Sunday evening, he said that the masses would not allow rulers to make the country’s constitution and law worthless under US pressure in spite of solid evidence of Davis’ activities.
Baloch said that the government appeared to be siding with the US national instead of its own citizens due to which people feel insecure. He said that the Punjab government did not have the courage to get hold of the vehicle, which ran over Ebadur Rehman and the Americans travelling in it.
Ibtesam Zaheer said that it is need of the hour to establish a system based on the Holy Quran and Sunnah.
