JI flays agreement on Nato supplies

July 27, 2012

Lahore : Jamaat e Islami (JI) chief Syed Munawar Hasan has warned the rulers and Pakistan army that a written agreement on NATO supplies restoration would be disastrous for country’s future security and tantamount to signing our death warrants.

Talking to different party delegations at Mansoora on Thursday, the JI chief asked the government to make the pact draft public and arrange consultation on the same at national level. He said rulers seemed to have agreed to sell country’s independence and sovereignty for a few dollars. The rulers, on their way out, had no right to decide highly sensitive issue of the national security, he said and added that the rulers had already lost public confidence and the nation would not allow the NATO supplies through its roads nor would it accept any agreement for their protection.

He said the US was using Pakistanis rulers to strengthen its hold in the region. America was causing terrorist activities in the country through Indian agents from across the Afghan border to create misunderstandings between Pakistan and Afghanistan, he added. He claimed the recurring attacks on Pakistan military posts on the Pak- Afghan border were made with the patronage of the US and NATO forces.

Meanwhile, the JI Secretary General and Chairman of the Steering Committee of Defense of Pakistan Council, Liaqat Baloch, said that the government decision to restore NATO supplies would leave national defense and security vulnerable against the US forces and secret agents. He said Washington was using all tactics, including coercing Islamabad into restoration of the supplies but the nation wondered why the military high ups had yielded to Washington’s pressure.

Meanwhile, the three member delegation from Myanmar, who are currently in the city, called on the JI secretary and expressed deep gratitude to the JI for raising voice against the killing of the Myanmar Muslims.

Talking to the delegation, Liaqat Baloch stressed upon the federal government to summon the diplomats in Islamabad and stage strong protest over the killings in Myanmar. He said the silence of the Burmese Opposition leader on the issue was most disappointing. Liaqat Baloch welcomed the Muslim rulers’ summit called by the Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah during the holy month of Ramazan and appealed to Muslims leaders to chalk out a line of action for the liberation of Kashmir and Palestin.
