LAHORE: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the rulers promoting nudity and obscenity in the country at the behest of the west were responsible for the molestation and murder of minor girls like Zainab.
Addressing the concluding session of the JI central Shoora at Mansoora, he said that the country was confronted with serious challenges on all sides but the rulers, instead of seeking pardon from Allah, were behaving as Pharaohs.
He said that the government was the root cause of all evils besides socio- economic problems such as poverty, illiteracy and unemployment.
Sirajul Haq said that there was a wide gap between the rulers and the ruled. The ruling elite considered themselves as of divine origin and the masses as insects. Had the rulers considered Zainab, Sharifan Bibi and Attya, as their own daughters, these poor girls would not have been molested.
He said the rulers wanted to distance the nation from the Quran and the Sunnah at the behest of world colonialism. However, he said that if the banner of the Kalima goes above Islamabad, nobody would be able to stop an Islamic revolution in the east and the west.
Sirajul Haq said that the JI would go to any extent to shake the status quo but its struggle was within the constitution and the law. The JI did not believe in the use of force for the enforcement of Deen but would bring about Islamic revolution through public opinion and through vote. He said the country was not short of resources and corruption was the sole ailment that had to e controlled to improve the lot of the masses.
