Modi’s visit to Pakistan a business trip, says JIPakistan
KARAK: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief of Jamaat-i-Islami Prof Mohammad Ibrahim has claimed that the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Pakistan was just a business trip, adding that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Mr Modi have friendship based on business interests.
He was addressing the Seeratun Nabi (PBUH) conference on Sunday at Mithakhel here.
He claimed that Mr Modi used foul language against Pakistan in Afghanistan which manifested that his visit to Pakistan was not based on a gesture of goodwill.
The JI leader alleged that the military alliance of 34 Islamic countries was based on a conspiracy, adding that the alliance formed at the behest of US had no future.
He said that they could not support any such alliance until they announced that attack on any Islamic country would be considered as an attack on the entire Muslim Ummah.
Prof Ibrahim demanded a probe into the Peshawar’s Army Public School incident and added that those found responsible for the security lapse should be punished.
He said that those who chanted the slogan of ‘Pakistan first’ saved neither Pakistan nor Afghanistan.
He said that Pakistan was the country most affected by the war on terror.
He said that the JUI-F and JI would have the coalition government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa today had the former agreed on seat-to-seat adjustment with them in the last general election.
He said that they had joined the provincial government on the request of PTI chairman Imran Khan.
NAP IMPLEMENTATION: Awami National Party’s parliamentary leader in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, Sardar Hussain Babak, has demanded implementation of the National Action Plan (NAP), saying that all political parties have already given their consent to this.
He was addressing a ceremony held at the Government Higher Secondary School, Karak, on the eve of retirement of Malgari Ustazan leader Qudrat Ali here on Sunday. He said that the discussion over good and bad Taliban should end now and indiscriminate action should be taken against all terrorists.
The ANP leader said that Pakistan-China Economic Corridor project would be resisted if Pakhtun areas were ignored. He said that the provincial government was so inefficient that it could not utilise the development budget.
Mr Babak claimed that the incumbent government was putting hurdles to the development projects approved by the previous ANP government. He said that all ANP activists were ready for accountability.
He recalled that service structure was given to the teachers during their tenure.
