Rulers’ politics is to protect feudal lords’ interests, says Siraj

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq on Saturday said that the sole objective of the rulers’ politics was to protect the interests of the feudal lords and they had least respect for the constitution and the law.

He said this while addressing the advisory council of the JI Lahore at a local hotel. The meeting was attended by JI deputy Secretary General, Azhar Iqbal Hasan, JI Lahore chief, Zikrullah Mujahid and JI Information Secretary Amirul Azeem.

Siraj said that the country’s politics was in the control of the oppressive feudal lords and corrupt capitalists who framed policies only to serve their interests as against the interests of the general public.

However, he was confident that in the 2018 elections, the MMA would emerge as a big political force. He urged the people to lend their support to the religious alliance to throw off the plunderers and mafias.

The JI chief impressed upon the people not to repeat the past mistakes in the elections. He said that the corrupt politicians were entirely responsible for the problems being faced by the country and the nation.

Siraj said that the parties and individuals involved in corruption were in fact playing with the destiny of the nation. “These people had divided the nation on ethnic, regional and sectarian grounds only to serve their interests. The JI was striving to unite the masses by raising them above petty differences to able to meet the challenges being thrown by India and other enemies” he added.

He stated that the west and the US were afraid of Islam and were blaming the Muslims for terrorism. At the same time, they were spending billions of dollars to promote western nude culture because of which our minor children were not safe. He said the country’s rulers were obstructing the Islamic system because it demanded strict accountability.
