JI for serious efforts on Kashmir Issue

LAHORE: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that Kashmir could not be liberated through talks and claims and has called for serious planning and budgetary allocation to this end and a vigorous diplomatic campaign to highlight India’s brutalities in held Kashmir.

He was talking to the media after addressing the Khatme Bukhari ceremony at the Mansoora mosque on Thursday.

The JI chief said that the US considered the mosques and the madrissahs as a threat and was bombing the madrissahs and setting the copies of the holy Quran on fire. He said that in a recent bombing at a madrissah in Qunduz, Afghanistan, more than two hundred Huffaz besides citizens and students were martyred but the cowardly rulers of the country had not condemn that.

Sirajul Haq said the US had gone mad in its enmity towards Islam while the UN and the so called International Court of Justice were silent as they had double standards and were not prepared to speak against Washington. He asked the human rights bodies whether those killed in Qunduz and Bajaur madrissahs were not human beings.

The JI chief said that the US had unleashed terrorism by dropping nuclear bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and was still continuing its terrorist activities and was specifically targeting the Muslims.

The JI chief called for the withdrawal of the US/ NATO troops from Afghanistan as their presence in the region was a threat to peace. He said the enemy wanted a war between Pakistan and Afghanistan and added that India was trying to destabilize this country while sitting in Afghanistan. However, he said that Pakistan and Afghanistan were linked together through the strong ties of Islam. He said that peace in Afghanistan was also the need of this country and the enemy conspiracies could not create a wedge between the two neighbouring states.

Sirajul Haq said that if New Delhi did not grant the Kashmiris their right of self-determination, it would have to face dozens of revolts within its territory and it would break because of the more than seventy movements for liberation.

The JI chief expressed confidence in the leadership of Ashraf Sahraee, and said as all the Kashmiri groups had accepted him as their leader, the political parties of Pakistan and the Pakistani people also accepted his leadership. He expressed the hope that the Kashmiris liberation struggle would be further strengthened under the leadership of Ashraf Sahraee.

The ceremony was also addressed by President of the Jamait e Ittehadul Ulema, Pakistan, Maulana Abdul Ma’lk, senior JI leader Prof. Mohammad Ibrahim Khan and Hafiz Mohammad Idrees.
