He said that unfortunately, both the ruling party men and the opposition were roaring and thundering over each other. He said the governments generally tried to satisfy the masses through their performance and not through abuses and threats.

Hafiz Muhammad Idrees said that accountability and justice were the essential qualities of every civilized society and the criteria of accountability was the same for all the people. He said that as long as the plundered wealth was not recovered, the nation would not benefit at all. He said that the legislature should do its job with a sense of responsibility while the law enforcement institutions should perform their duties in accordance with the law.

He said the job of the courts was to weed out injustice and not to indulge in politics. He said if the courts dispensed justice and provided relief to the wronged, the country would l move towards progress. The JI deputy chief said the Sahiwal killings were most unfortunate and it seemed that the aggrieved party was not being provided justice. He said the blood of a common man was as precious in the eyes of Allah as that of a ruler and a rich person. He said if justice was not done in this case, the rulers could not escape the divine wrath.
