LAHORE: The PML-N and the PPP should quit assemblies if they want early elections in the country, says Jamaat-i-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq.

Speaking to journalists after addressing ‘Mashaikh Conference’ at the JI headquarters Mansoora on Thursday, he said: “The JUI-F has the right to protest against the government and it’s the responsibility of Prime Minister Imran Khan to fulfill his words and provide container and food to the protestors planning to enter Islamabad on Oct 31,” he said.

Regretting that the government and opposition have lost interest in Kashmir, he said both had their own priorities. The rulers, he added, wanted to fight the case of Kashmir while sitting in air-conditioned halls of Islamabad without realising the threat the Modi government posed to the country’s sovereignty.

He warned the rulers against designs of New Delhi which was bent upon changing the demography of the region. He said the government should make preemptive strike to thwart the designs of enemy against Pakistan. He demanded that the government announce clear roadmap for the liberation of Kashmir from Indian yoke.

He sought suggestions from the scholars and mashaikh on Kashmir, asking them to play their role in creating awareness among people on an issue which was a matter of life and death for Pakistan.

Ameerul Azim underscored the need for unity in the Muslim world. He said western powers had long unleashed an attack on Islamic ideology which could only be confronted if the Muslims demonstrated unity among its ranks.

The JI secretary general expressed grave concern over the silence of the world on the Kashmir issue.

The conference vowed to defend with full force every article and sub-article of the constitution dealing with the Islamic ideology of the country. The participants expressed concern over the plight of the Muslims in Palestine, the IHK, Syria, Iraq and Burma, stressing the need of unity among the Muslim countries to address the problems facing the Ummah.

The conference unanimously demanded that the government take practical steps in support of the people of the IHK.Custodians of shrines attended and addressed the conference proceedings on the agenda of unity of the Muslims and protection of the faith on finality of the prophethood besides Kashmir.
