Muttahida, PPP created crisis in national politics, says JI leaderArchive
BADIN: Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) leader Liaquat Baloch has said Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain hatches conspiracies against the solidarity of the country while sitting in London.
He said the Pakistan Peoples Party and the MQM had created crisis in national politics.
Addressing Jamaat workers at an Eid Milan party here in a wedding hall on Tuesday, he said Mr Hussain should save his skin as he had been trapped in a number of different cases.
Mr Baloch asked Mr Hussain to come Pakistan to lead his party and face the cases instead of going on hunger strike. He asked the government to ban the telephonic speeches of Mr Hussain which he said were creating hatred against the armed forces of the country.
He said the claims about an armed wing of the MQM, its terrorism and getting funds from anti-Pakistani forces were now being endorsed by everyone.
Mr Baloch accused Asif Ali Zardari and the Sindh government of giving a free hand to the terrorists of MQM in Karachi to kill innocent people. He criticised the Sindh government for failing to give any relief to the common people of the province.
He said that those fled the country for fear of accountability against their massive corruption were still enjoying luxurious lives in Dubai.
Mr Baloch said the only solution to the problems of people and ills affecting the country lay in imposition of Islamic laws.
Some areas of the country were facing flashfloods while a lot of people of tail-end areas were deprived of even drinking water, he said.
Mr Baloch said the people of Sindh were facing the worst situation due to rampant corruption of the rulers who always duped the people by raising hollow slogans.
He also alleged that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was least concerned about even spending his time in the country. Dr Merajul Huda, the provincial JI Amir, speaking on the occasion, severely criticised the rulers for their indifferent and callous attitude towards the genuine problems facing Sindh.
Mohammad Hussain Mehanti, Dr Mumtaz,Hussain Sahto, Syed Daud Shah and others also spoke on the occasion.
Later Mr Baloch visited a hunger strike camp of the farmers belonging to various outlets of Akram Wah division, outside the Badin Press Club. They have been protesting against water crisis in their waterways for over a week. Mr Baloch observed a token hunger strike for sometime to express solidarity with the farmers.
He said it was due terrible governance of the PPP in Sindh that people were facing hunger and starvation.
