Munawar hassan at Jamrud stadium

Jamaat-e-Islami Chief Syed Munawar Hasaan

while speaking to a big public gathering at Jamrud here on Monday said

that the government and army failed to stop US drone strikes in the

tribal areas. He said that the army operations in the tribal areas had

no justification because the government was forcing the army for the

military operations in FATA just to appease the US government and to obtain some dollars.

He said

that the military destroyed homes and infrastructure in the tribal

areas and displaced the tribesmen in their own country which was

regrettable. Syed Munawar Hasan paid great homage to the sacrifices of

the tribesmen that they rendered for the sake of this country

and Islam, adding that independence of Kashmir was also due to the

sacrifices of the tribal fighters. JI chief said the successive

governments have failed to establish peace in the tribal areas and

develop this backward region and facilitate the tribesmen, saying the

AL Khidmat Foundation would soon set up a school and hospital at

Jalozai camp to facilitate the tribal displaced persons.

He asked the

army to halt military offensive in FATA and resort to peace

negotiations with the tribesmen. Syed Munawar Hassan said Yousuf Raza

Gillani was no more prime minister of Pakistan but a convicted person

who has lost the legitimate right to stick to the throne. JI chief

reminded that Pakistan People’s Party had always resorted to tussle and

fight with the established institutions of the country and said that

now the ruling party was bent upon creating panic and anarchy in the

country. He also said that PPP had split the country into two parts

because the then Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was not willing to

accept the mandate of the winning group in the eastern Pakistan.

He also criticized the opposition for having a soft corner for the

government to let it complete its tenure, which would cause further

trouble to the countrymen. He said that the US led forces were facing a

defeat with the hands of the poor Afghanis and Taliban in

Afghanistan. He regretted the ongoing curfew in Bara and asked the army

and security forces to halt the offensive as soon as possible so that

Bara people could be repatriated to their homes peacefully.

JI senior vice ameer Siraj Ul Haq said that JI would not allow

the ANP led nationalist government to impose their decision on the

tribal people to merge FATA into the province rather it was the right and mandate of the tribal people to decide in their best interests about their

future status whether they want a separate province of council. He said that the government was intent upon to crush the

tribal people in the ongoing and so called war on terror under the

dictation of the US regime. He urged upon the tribesmen to vote

for the candidates of the JI in the next elections to get their

rights. JI provincial chief Professor Ibrahim also said that the

tension could not be curtailed in the country unless and until the US

forces are present in Afghanistan. Large number of tribal people hailing from Khyber Agency participated in the gathering despite the bomb explosion one day earlier at Jamrud which had terrified the people. The JI leadership termed that explosion a foiled attempt to detract tribesmen to participate in the JI public gathering at Jamrud, which they said was a deep rooted conspiracy against the JI political endeavours and efforts in the tribal regions.
