Siraj warns Pakistan’s enemies on Defence Day


LAHORE: Addressing a Defence Day function in his home town Samarbagh, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Siraj-ul-Haq has warned US President Donald Trump and Indian Premier Narendra Modi that anyone who casts an evil on Pakistan will be knocked down with full force.

Addressing the students and the staff of Higher Secondary School, Siraj said that knowledge and literature were the foundation of civilization and the inheritance of the Muslims, but the ruling elite in the country had abandoned them and were promoting alien culture and values.

Referring to the genocide of the Rohingya Muslims, the JI chief said that those who raised hue and cry over maltreatment of animals, were silent over the brutalities being perpetrated against the Burmese Muslims.

He further said that it seems that the objectives for which the Islamic Military alliance had been formed were not being realised. He said that he had written to the Muslim heads of states to immediately convene an OIC meeting to raise a strong voice against the violence against the Rohingyas. He said JI would hold a siege around the Burmese Embassy in Islamabad on Friday, September 8.

Siraj-ul-Haq further said that the corrupt elite ruling the country for the last seven decades had rendered a country rich with natural resources bankrupt.  He said the JI was striving for a system that would ensure justice and equality to all and the provision of the basic needs to the common man at his doorstep.

He said the JI desired that only such people returned to the corridors of power as necessitated by the needs and the problems of the poor.
