JI denounces Karachi arrests
LAHORE: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch and all deputy chiefs of the Jamaat, have strongly condemned the arrests of JI workers in Karachi and said the government could not deny the citizens the right to protest.
The JI leaders said that the police tyranny and abuse of state power could not deter the JI workers as the public meetings, peaceful rallies and protest were guaranteed in a democratic system. They stressed upon the provincial government and the district governments to end load shedding instead of blocking protest.
The JI leadership demanded of the Sind Chief Minister to take notice of the excesses of the K- Electric and provide relief to the citizens of the mega city against oppressive load shedding.
They warned of country wide protests in the detained workers were not freed forthwith.
