LAHORE: Former Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan chief Syed Munawar Hasan said that White House and Pentagon were the centers of conspiracies against Islam and the Muslims and the US was playing the key role for the rule of the devil in the world.
Addressing the concluding session of the three day training convention for the JI office bearers, his last in office through video link here on Sunday, Syed Munawar Hasan said that the US is patronizing dictators in the Muslim world. After Iraq and Afghanistan, Egypt and Syria had now become the centers of US conspiracies.
He said that the May 2013 elections were the most controversial elections in the country’s history as both the winning and the losing parties were alleging of rigging. The government was not serious in holding local bodies’ polls while the rulers were adding the burden of taxes and price hike totally ignoring their election manifesto.
He said that if the government wanted better relations with India, It must give top priority to the solution of the core issue of Kashmir.
Speaking on the occasion, JI Punjab chief, Dr Syed Waseem Akhtar, said that the JI would start a vigorous drive against price hike and unemployment in the province during April.
The speech was his last in office as JI KPK leader Sirajul Haq replaced him as the new chief of Jamaat-e-Islami.
