Rulers’ negligence caused harm to Kashmir cause: Jamaat-e-Islami

Lahore, November 09, 2019 (PPI-OT): Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Amir Senator Sirajul Haq has said that state of Kashmir has disappeared from the world map due to the negligence of the Pakistani rulers. Addressing a Senate session in Islamabad on Friday, he held the government responsible for the surrender on Kashmir, reminding the rulers the ‘fall of Kashmir’ would be the worst tragedy in the history of the country after the ‘fall of Dhaka.’

He said the prime minister had promised that he (PM) would a give a roadmap to the nation on Kashmir after returning from the UN. The people of Pakistan, he said, were still waiting for the roadmap. It seemed, said the JI chief, holding token protests and wearing black arm bands were the only strategy the government had devised for the Kashmir cause. He said 100 days were passed that IHK was under curfew and people were starving to death but Islamabad was turned into silent spectator to the worst human rights violations in the valley.

He said the rulers had already wasted 14 months and left with a little time to fix their directions on domestic and foreign fronts. He said no one could save the rulers from facing public wrath if they continued their policies. He said the government ministers were intentionally making fun of the illness of Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari to create political chaos in the country. The government attempts, he added, to hide its inability would not succeed now as the rulers were completely exposed before the masses.

The JI chief declared the unavailability of justice as the biggest issue of the country. He said two parallel systems, one for the rich and affluent class and the other for poor, were running in Pakistan. On one side, he said, people could not afford bread and roof while on the other side the elite of the country were stashing their billions of rupees in foreign banks.

He said the statement of the army’s spokesperson about the neutrality of the institution was welcoming though the past examples were bitter and otherwise. He called for launching an inquiry into the matter of cancellation of Senator Hafiz Hamdullah citizenship by NADRA.
