Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has said that President Zardari’s election for another five year term was not acceptable. The present government is a failure on all fronts and the gang of four is plundering public wealth with both hands, and if they manage to come to power for another term, the country would be plunged into anarchy and its future would be uncertain, he said while addressing a Iftar party in the city on Sunday. The JI Ameer condemned the presentation of a Hollywood film depicting two holy prophets on a private TV channel and said the step was a violation of Islamic tenets and had hurt the sentiments of the Muslims masses. Syed Munawar Hasan said that news of President Zardari’s re-election from the present assemblies were in circulation and something of the sort was being cooked up between Zardari and the other parties in the coalition. The masses who were opposed to surrendering the country’s independence and sovereignty before the US and wanted an end to the ongoing load shedding, price hike, unemployment and lawlessness, would not such conspiracy to succeed, he added. The JI Ameer said that the ruler’s corruption was causing prolonged load shedding of electricity even during the month of Ramadhan. This was despite the fact that the electricity generation capacity in the country was higher than the energy requirement but the corrupt rulers were not making payments to the power producing companies. National institutions had been ruined. The rulers were both corrupt and incompetent and nothing good was expected of them. Their continuation in power would only undermine national harmony and push the country towards civil war. Syed Munawar Hasan pointed out that a huge amount ranging from Rs 70 up to 100 billion was being dished out from the public exchequer to the PPP workers in the name of Benazir Income Support program annually whereas the deserving and poor poverty stricken millions were forced to starve. He said that the JI had the honest, sincere and competent leadership that could steer the country out of the present crisis and put in back on the road to progress and prosperity. The JI, in its manifesto, had already pledged end to load shedding within six months besides 30 per cent cut in prices, he added. The JI deputy Secretary General Dr Farid Ahmed Piracha also spoke on the occasion.
