Sirajul Haq impressed upon Prime Minister Imran Khan to behave as chief executive of the country

Lahore, November 02, 2018 (PPI-OT): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has impressed upon Prime Minister Imran Khan to behave as the chief executive of the country, listen to the protestors view point and present the government stance with arguments. He was addressing a large rally held at Multan road to protest against the Supreme Court decision acquitting Christian women Aasia of the charge of blasphemy. Thousands of people including aged and young, joined the rally.

The JI chief said that the PTI government had plunged the nation in a difficult situation as on one side, price hike was causing hardships for the people while on the other hand, there was an attempt to attack the faith of the masses. Addressing Chief Justice Saqib Nisar, Sirajul Haq said that nobody had questioned the faith of Chief Justice but if the Session Court and the High Court could give a wrong judgment, the apex court could also do the same.

He demanded that a larger Supreme Court bench be constituted to hear Aasia’s case afresh and till the decision of the bench, Aasia’s name be place on ECL. Sirajul Haq said that the British Prime Minister had greeted her nation on the SC decision and the United Nations had also welcomed the decision, while the entire Muslim world was in a state of grief and shock.

He further said that all those seeking guidance from London and Washington and acting on the dictation of the IMF and the World Bank had ganged up against the Islamic laws especially the Blasphemy law. He said the politicians who had been threatening to give tough time to the PTI government only to save their skin and their ill-gotten wealth were now offering their cooperation to the government against the blasphemy law.

The JI chief said that peaceful protest was going on right from Chitral up to Karachi and it would continue till the time the Islamic provisions of the constitution including the Blasphemy law were fully secure and protected. “We want to make it clear to the Prime Minister and the Chief Justice that this is not a political issue or an issue involving vote. It is a matter concerning our faith, and we don’t want to ruin our life in the Hereafter. We want the intercession of the Holy Prophet, therefore, the government threats or warnings cant not stop us from the expressing our love for the holy Prophet”.

Addressing the rally, JI chief for central Punjab, Amirul Azeem, deplored that the people raising the slogan of the state of Madina had also sold themselves in the market of the west. Addressing the Information Minister, he said that the Minister was talking of the writ of the state but he was not conscious of the writ of Allah Almighty that had made an example of all those who challenged that writ. Assessing Chief Justice Saqib Nisar, he said “we believe that you are a believer but why then have you shut your eyes on the issue of Usury which is a clearly prohibited in the Shariah.”
