LAHORE - Jamaat-e-Islami Chief Syed Munawar Hasan on Saturday said that the present government has crossed all previous records of anti people policies, and is continuously bombing the masses with price hike under the IMF pressure.
Addressing the Shabab-e-Milli convention at Mansoora on Saturday, he said on one hand the raise in electricity tariff had been withdrawn temporarily under Supreme Court orders, but on the other hand, the GST had been multiplied on dozens of items to burden the people. He dubbed Asif Ali Zardari and Mian Nawaz Sharif as chips of the same block and equally loyal to America.
He said the present pro-US and pro-India foreign policy of the country must be reviewed, which was however possible only if the masses distinguished between their friends and foes and stood united.
Munawar remarked that the Prime Minister should convene his cabinet meeting and go through PML (N) election manifesto once again. It was a pity, he said, that the party which came to power with the promises to eradicate corruption and unemployment and price hike, besides breaking the begging bowl, had darkened the nations future due to its anti people policies within three months rule.
He said the PM had gone crazy in his desire to befriend India and import onions and potatoes from there, and was ready to accept India’s supremacy, shutting his eyes to the genocide of the Kashmiris by the Indian army.
Bigoted Indian Hindus are carrying out the killing of all minorities and desecrating their worship places, but the rulers in Islamabad dared not to speak on this issue under US pressure, and instead are offering explanations for India’s policies, he said.
The JI chief said that after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the US started the massacre of the Muslims in different countries to thrust its World Order which was still going on. A war was thrusted on the Afghans who did not have any hand in the 9/11.
He said the US had entered this region with the agenda to occupy Central Asia’s resources, to contain China and to build India as regional policeman. However, brave Afghans frustrated its unholy designs by inflicting a crushing defeat on it.
Now, he said, the US and India were trying hard to destabilise Pakistan and deprive it of its nuclear assets. “Therefore, the government and the nation should units to foil the enemy designs”, he added.
