Nation will not tolerate rule of the corrupt anymore: Siraj


LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami chief Siraj-ul-Haq has said that the country cannot afford any adventure at present and will not tolerate the rule of the corrupt and dishonest people anymore. He said this while addressing the central board of the JI Youth at Mansoora on Sunday.

Siraj-ul-Haq said that a class-based and exploitative system was continuing in the country through which the society was being divided. He said that the status quo has disappointed the youth.

Talented and highly educated young men were running from one end to the other in search for jobs but in vain. Lawlessness, poverty, load shedding and price hike were the gifts of the rulers as none of the governments had fulfilled its election promises to the masses.

He said that the youth was disappointed because of the wrong policies of the rulers and their apathy which had made life difficult for the people.

He said that if the wealth of the nation which is lying abroad, amounting to 375 billion dollars were retrieved, all the economic and social problems of the people could be solved. He once again urged the Supreme Court to ensure the accountability of all the plunderers and spare no body.

The JI chief said that a strong defense of the country required an honest leadership at the helm of the affairs that could take bold decisions on vital issues and security without yielding to any pressure.

Siraj-ul-Haq said that the Pakistani nation had rejected Donald Trump’s threats and anti-US and anti-Trump slogans were being raised all over the country. This had given a clear message that they won’t accept US supremacy under any circumstances.

He said that the US agents ruling the country for the last seventy years had been exploiting the masses whereas the general public had always protested against the pro-US policies of the government.

The meeting was attended by JIY President Zubair Ahmed Gondal, JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeemur Rahman, Hafiz Salman Butt and JIY members from all over the country.
