Assassination of Maulana Samiul Haq in a high security area is a question mark on the efficiency of the security forces

Lahore, November 03, 2018 (PPI-OT): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the assassination of a prominent religious and political personality like Maulana Samiul Haq in a high security area of Rawalpindi was a question mark on the efficiency of the security forces. He was addressing a large gathering at the funeral of the JUI(S) President at Akora Khattak. A four member JI delegation including JI Secretary General Liaqat Baloch, Maulana Abdul Maalik and Dr Farid Ahmed Piracha, attended the funeral prayer.

The JI chief said the assassination of Maulana Samiul Haq was the result of a deep conspiracy. He said it was the responsibility of the government to arrest the assassins of the Maulana, award them deterrent punishment and also bring to light the motive behind the incident. He said it was unfortunate that the assassins had not been traced so far.

Sirajul Haq said that Maulana Samiul Haq had always talked of the enforcement of the supremacy of Deen in the country and in his martyrdom, the country had lost an eminent religious scholar and a great politician. His martyrdom was a great shock to the movement for the Nizam e Mustafa. Sirajul Haq expressed his condolences with the son of the deceased, Hamidul Haq, and other family members and said the JI fully shared their grief. He also prayed that the departed soul may rest in eternal peace.
