Rulers lack decision power: Sirajul Haq

Lahore, November 14, 2019 (PPI-OT): Jamaat-e-Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq has said the government changing stance on the issue of Nawaz Sharif treatment proves that the rulers are confused and lack decision power. Talking to journalists outside Senate on previous evening, he said the government established its incapability on the health issue of the former prime minister. Meanwhile, talking to delegation of World Kashmir Freedom Movement, he urged the international community pay attention towards human rights violations in Indian held Kashmir (IHK).

He said curfew and lockdown entered 100th day in the held area and millions of people were become prisoners of the occupied forces and facing severe shortage of food, medicines and other necessities of life. Kashmiri leaders Muzammil Ayub Thakur and Shaista Safi called on the JI chief in Islamabad to discuss the situation emerged in the held region after the Modi government decision to abrogate the special autonomy of the area on August 5.

Siraj appreciated the role of Kashmiri diasporas in highlighting the Indian brutalities in the IHK, saying the prevailing situation had enhanced their responsibilities toward the cause. He said it was his belief that Kashmiri struggle will soon bear fruit as the torch of freedom was now in the hands of youth who were writing a new history of sacrifices and resistance against the oppressive forces. He said the days were not so ahead when Kashmir will get freedom from the yoke of Indian slavery.

The JI chief said Indian PM Modi as Gujrat chief minister had ordered killing of thousands of Muslims in the Indian state and now he (Modi) had adopted the same method in Kashmir. The international community must take notice of it, he added. He regretted that the UN was acting as silent spectator when it came to the issue related to Muslim world. He said Muslim should be given veto power in the UN.
