Dialogue is the only way out: Sirajul Haq


Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Ameer Sirajul Haq has said that internal chaos and political instability were greater threats to the country than the foreign enemies. He stated this while addressing the Ulema, seminary students and notables attending an all Pakistan declamation contest organised by the Majlis-e-Sautul Islam in Peshawar on Sunday.

Haq said there was no other way out of the present political crisis except dialogue and the political parties should try to push the things forward with tolerance and cool mind and ensure the success of the government-PTI talks.

He said the political differences could be overcome only through political means and dialogue. If the political parties went on fighting with one another and did not adopt the path of reconciliation, the third force could step in as would bring great harm to the entire country.

He said that the break-up of Pakistan in 1971 was the biggest event of terrorism, and the national leadership must stand united to forestall the repetition of the tragedy. He also urged the religious parties and leaders not to allow their sectarian and factional differences obstruct the establishment of an Islamic, welfare Pakistan.
