Thursday, November 26, 2009
Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Syed Munawwar Hasan calling upon the students community to play their role in safeguarding ideology of Pakistan said colleges and universities of Pakistan would be converted into fronts against America to foil its conspiracies against the country.
JI central Amir was addressing a big anti-America rally, organised by Islami Jamiat-e-Taluba (IJT) in the federal capital on Wednesday.
The rally, which started from Melody Market, concluded at Parade Ground where it was addressed by JI and IJT leaders including IJT Nazim-e-Aala Attiqur Rehman, Mian Muhammad Aslam, Syed Muhammad Bilal and Shamsur Rehman Swati.
The charged students carrying placards and banners were raising slogans against American policies, Blackwaters’ presence in Islamabad and other cities, Kerry-Lugar Act and Pakistan government’s pro-America policies.
The traffic remained suspended for a couple of hours from Lal Masjid Chowk en route to Parade Ground and traffic police had to divert the vehicles to other routes. As the federal capital is passing through strict security measures, the Islamabad Police were not ready to take any risk, therefore, all link roads were also blocked for all kinds of traffic that created problems for commuters.
Munawwar Hasan recalled that the students were in forefront of Pakistan movement, the success of which was not possible without their participation. “The same role is required from them now,” he said.
He asked the government to introduce uniform education system and restore student unions in education institutions of the country.
Strongly criticising US interference in Pakistan, Munawwar Hasan maintained that he colleges and universities of Pakistan would be converted into fronts against America to foil conspiracies against the country.
On Balochistan package, JI top leader said the Baloch leadership had also categorically rejected the package. “If the government believes in Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) with India then why the same policy is not good for Baloch people and their leadership,” he said.
He warned that the United States and India were eying on natural resources of Balochistan while the Pakistan government has been ignoring grievances of people of the province.
He said that India was involved for unrest in Balochistan adding that JI would observe three-day protest from December 14 to 16 against Indian conspiracies against Pakistan.
He said India wanted its supremacy in the continent but the Muslims of Pakistan and Bangladesh would not accept Indian hegemony in the region.
Munawwar Hasan called upon the Pakistan government to call back its High Commissioner from Indian capital for India’s acts of terrorism in Balochistan and other parts of the country.
He said that Baloch leadership should have been taken into confidence before announcing the Balochistan package. “The government should have registered FIR against murderers of Akbar Bugti before announcing the package,” he said.
On NRO, JI Amir feared that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) would destroy all record against President Zardari and federal ministers as NAB was working under the Interior minister.
He said that Qadiani and secular lobbies were working against Islamic ideology of Pakistan.
JI Punjab Naib Amir Mian Muhammad Aslam demanded of Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani to fulfil his promise of holding elections of student unions in educational institutions.
He said the United States would fail in implementation of its policies and one day they would have to run away from the region.
IJT Nazim-e-Aala Attiqur Rehman said the students were being victimised and they were being expelled from institutions. He said the students had been deprived of student unions for the last 26 years saying the student fees have also been increased during tenure of democratic government.
