LAHORE: On Sunday, Jamat-e-Islami leader Sirajul Haq, speaking at the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal’s (MMA) first public gathering in Punjab said that the rally was a prim and proper clear signal that it was about time that the nation wanted an “Islamic Pakistan” rather than “Naya Pakistan”.
“US agents are worried to see the unity of religious parties,” he claimed.
The JI emir mourned that the corrupt rulers were piling looted wealth abroad, and that the corrupt elite had bought properties worth billions of rupees.
“I curse politics which aims for increasing funds in bank accounts,” he said. “I want to open avenues of power to the common Pakistanis. We have to end the tradition of giving votes to the oppressors.”
Siraj said that corrupt people should not be allowed in any party.
“We will bring a direct tax system. A gatekeeper is giving the same amount of tax as a billionaire here. Fair distribution of resources will bring prosperity to the nation.”
While addressing the public, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman exclaimed that the MMA will win the next elections by defeating the secularists of the country.
Rehman said that restoring law and order is apparently the biggest challenge of the country today, adding that from last ten years Muslim word is facing attack from the West.
“You have destroyed Afghanistan and Iraq, and now bloodshed is happening in Syria. It’s all US’ conspiracy,” he said. “We know what freedom is. Our economy is being conquered by IMF and World Bank.”
He alleged that the Pakistani budget is approved by IMF’s Pakistan desk.
“Our leaders give budget speech after approval from IMF. Our civilization is under attack from the West.”
The MMA leaders are expected to announce the political alliance’s manifesto for the coming polls.
Religious-political parties announced the restoration of the defunct MMA in March this year. The newly resurrected alliance will contest the elections under one symbol.
