Jamat-e-Islami workers convention held
CHITRAL: The provincial amir of Jamaat-e-Islami, Mushtaq
Ahmed Khan has claimed that Pakistan will start march on the road
of progress and prosperity the day Jamaat-e-Islami comes to power
because it has pious, honest and visionary leadership.
Addressing the workers convention in Pologround Chitral here on
Sunday, he said that the rulers of the past 69 years of the country
gave nothing to the nation except poverty, unemployment, inflation,
insecurity of life and property due to their corrupt practices and
pushed the country to the brink of bankruptcy.
“Our political elites ruling the country turn by turn go to the
foreign countries for their treatment, education of their children,
carrying out business and dumping the ill gotten wealth from this
country”, he said.
“There is no system to check the rampant corruption while the
accountability institutions are cleansing the corrupt and the
looters in lieu of some pennies which is a small fraction of their
wealth which they had gathered by corruption”.
“As long as the present coterie is in power in one form or the
other, the country will go on facing a myriad of issues and there
will not be respite or break to the suffering of the people while
the panacea to all the ills is the honest and upright leadership
which only and only JI can offer”, he said.
Mr. Khan said that the people of Pakistan are drawing lessons from
Turkey where Islamic model of governance under Erdogan raised the
nation from depth to heights which can be gauged from the fact that
the value of American dollar lost its value from 300 Turkish Lera
to only 2.25 within a short span of ten years.
“Sirajul Haq’s JI of Pakistan and Erdagon’s Justice and Development
Party are the faces of the same coin as both of them derived their
political thoughts from the same sources being the followers of
Maulana Maududi”, he said and claimed that JI in Pakistan can
accomplish the same what its counterpart did in Turkey.
He also announced to hold a grand meeting of the party in Peshawar
in the coming October before which the party has planned to
approach each and door of the province inviting both the male and
women folk to the gathering.
“This will be turning point in the political history of the
province when one million workers of the party will gather in the
provincial capital and exhibit its strength”, Mr. Khan said.
The district nazim Maghfirat Shah and district amir of JI Maulana
Jamshed Ahmed also spoke on the occasion and said that JI has been
turned into a strong political force in Chitral while the district
will turn into a stronghold of the party very soon.
