Placing the country in the hands of the corrupt people knowingly will tantamount to suicide: Sirajul Haq

Lahore, June 25, 2018 (PPI-OT): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that placing the country in the hands of the corrupt people knowingly would tantamount to suicide. He was addressing a big gathering on the opening ceremony of the central election office at his home town Miskini. Sirajul Haq said that the country was facing threats from the internal enemies as also from abroad and the corrupt and dishonest people were a great challenge to Pakistan’s solidarity and existence. He said these people had destroyed national institutions, the country’s politics and democratic system, on the foreign agenda.

He said that in the present situation, the religious parties unity was the crying need of the hour. The JI chief said that the Khyber PK was the worst hit province because of lawlessness but the federal government had not provided any relief to the people there and its attitude had been step motherly. However, he said the people were now fully awake and they would bring about a change through their vote.

He said that Pakistan could be made a welfare, Islamic state only with a honest and competent leadership and added that the MMA’s election manifesto was the best possible agenda for the purpose. He said the solution of the country’s problem lay in the just Islamic system and the introduction of the Shariah would send a wave of satisfaction and happiness all over the country.

The MMA would abolish the interest based system and introduce the system of Zakat and Ushr. The indirect taxes would be abolished and instead a just system of direct taxes would be introduced under which the poor would not be burdened with undue taxes. Sirajul Haq said that the MMA would ensure equitable distribution of the national resources and provision of basic facilities of health and education to the common man at his doorstep.
