LAHORE - The senior leadership of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) called on Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq at Mansoora yesterday and offered prayers for the hanged leaders of the religio-party in Bangladesh.

Motiur Rahman Nizami, the JI chief in Bangladesh, along with other leaders were executed by trial court set up by Sheikh Hasina government on 1971 war between Pakistan and India which resulted separation of then East Pakistan now Bangladesh. Pakistan termed the executions illegal and violation of treaty between the two countries.

PML-Q president Ch Shujaat Hussain and former CM Ch Parvez Elahi were leading a delegation that included Senator Kamil Ali Agha, MNA Tariq Bashir Cheema and former MNA Mian Muhammad Munir, while JI leaders Liaquat Baloch, Farid Piracha, Amirul Azeem, Zikrullah Mujahid, Muhammad Asghar and Qaiser Sharif were also present during the meeting.

Talking to media after the meeting, Shujaat said that the unfair trail of JI leaders and oppression of the Bangladesh government was strongly condemnable.

“There is no doubt that Motiur Rahman Nizami was convicted for his love for Pakistan,” the PML-Q president said.

He said that he greatly regrets in-apathy of rulers of Pakistan who have not put forth their stance openly in this regard so far.

About Panama Leaks, Shujaat Hussain said that the N-League government was not serious about talks regarding Terms of Reference. He said the PML-Q relations with Jamaat-e-Islami were not of today but date back to period of his father Ch Zahoor Elahi.

Pervez Elahi said that the opposition formulated ToRs without wasting time, but the government had not yet finalised its members of the committee to formulate joint ToRs. He added that the opposition parties will adopt their future strategy keeping in view thinking and attitude of the govt.

He also warned that opposition parties will take a decision to go to Supreme Court against prime minister after holding legal consultations.

Sirajul Haq said that both the parties exchanged views about national problems and issues and PML-Q and JI share the similar point of view over many political matters.
