Sirajul Haq calls for immediate dissociation from US

Lahore, January 05, 2018 (PPI-OT):Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has called for immediate dissociation from the US as it had always made Pakistan a scapegoat and deceived this country in the hour of need. In a message to the nation in response to US actions against the country, he said that the US wanted Pakistan to convert its defeat in Afghanistan into victory.

He said that Allah Almighty had blessed this country with abundant resources and we did not need to beg from anyone. He said that those taking the US as a friend and advocating for its slavery had only brought disgrace to the country and the nation. He said the US had never stood by Pakistan and on the contrary, it had always patronized India.

During the 1965 and 1971 wars, the US had left this country all alone and now it was blaming Pakistan for its defeat in Afghanistan. He said that when Pakistan conducted nuclear tests in response to India, the US imposed sanctions against the country. The JI chief said that Pakistan had sacrificed more than seventy thousand men in the US war on terror besides incurring financial loss of above 120 billion dollars but the US never acknowledged that. As such, he said, Pakistan could not be a party of the US war any more.

Sirajul Haq said that the measures taken by Trump against the country would ultimately go against US itself and it would stand isolated. He said the world community had voted against the US decision to declare Jerusalem as Israel capital thereby making it clear that it could support Washington’s wrong policies. The US stance on Palestine had also been rejected by the world at large, he added.

The JI chief said that Trump’s declaration had brought the entire Pakistani nation on one page and a complete national unity and harmony had emerged. He said it was high time that the nation stood on its own feet and the rulers tried to compensate for the losses caused to the country because of their wrong policies by taking to the path of self-respect and self-reliance, following the teachings of Allama Iqbal.
