‘Coterie of corrupt in govt, opposition creating hurdles in setting up ToRs’


Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Liaqat Baloch has said that the coterie of the corrupt in the government and the opposition was creating hurdles in setting up the judicial commission for Panama Leaks probe, but the masses would foil all such conspiracies.

He was addressing the participants of the JI central workshop at Mansoora on Sunday.

Baloch said that the NAB and other institutions for accountability were not attending to the hundreds of mega corruption scandals, while poverty and inflation has made the life of the common man miserable.

He said the corrupt elite destroyed the country’s agriculture and industry, making the life of farmers and workers difficult.

He said that the Kashmir issue was not among the priorities of the rulers who were obsessed about friendship with India. He said that complete national unity was essential to counter the Machiavellian moves of Hindu Bunya.

Baloch said the Kashmiris were laying down their lives for Pakistan, but the rulers in Islamabad were changing their stance on the issue under the pressure of US and India.

He said the rulers should have announced suspending of trade and cultural ties with India till New Delhi accepted Syed Ali Gilani’s four-point formula for the solution of Kashmir issue.

He announced that the JI would stage a massive rally in support of the Kashmiris on August 15 at Muzaffarabad.

The JI secretary general said that the nation was preparing for 70th Independence Day celebrations, whereas the rulers had made the country a US colony. A handful of British slaves have taken the entire system as hostage and were exploiting the masses, he complained.
