Nawaz Sharif’s conviction will definitely change the political scene: Sirajul Haq

Lahore, July 07, 2018 (PPI-OT): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that Nawaz Sharif’s conviction would definitely change the political scene and if ten or more other prominent persons who considered themselves above the law, were hauled up, the masses would get a message of the supremacy of the constitution and the law in the land.

Addressing a workers meeting at Timargarha on Saturday, he said that in the past, the rich and the poor had not equal in the eyes of the law and the ruling junta thought itself above the law. However, he said, Nawaz Sharif’s conviction had shown to the general public that the law and the constitution existed in the country and the powerful could also be brought in the grip of the law.

Sirajul Haq further said that so far, the Election Commission had not been able to implement the electoral forms or enforce its code of conduct. He asked what use these laws and the code of conduct were if these were not to be implemented. The JI chief said that the MMA was striving for the rights of the small provinces.

He said that mutual understanding among the provinces and an atmosphere of cooperation and unity was necessary for strengthening the federation. Similarly, he said, a line of action at national level must be evolved to remove the sense of deprivation in the small provinces. He stressed upon the masses to stand by the MMA on the 25th of July for building Pakistan a strong Islamic welfare state.
