Jamat e Islami (JI) chief Syed Munawar Hasan said on Friday that the message of the Conquest of Makkah was that acquisition of power was a prerequisite for the enforcement of the Islamic system.
Addressing a large Friday congregation at Mansoora, the JI chief said as long as Allah’s rebels and anti-Islamic forces were in power, injustice, exploitation, price hike and poverty would continue.
He said change in the country was not possible without the enforcement of the rule of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah. Islam not only guarded the rights of all the other religions and minorities but also provided them opportunities for growth, he added.
The JI chief said the country was facing a serious energy crisis that had ruined industry and agriculture but the rulers were least interested in its resolution.
The masses, he went on to say, were suffering loadshedding of up to twenty hours a day but they were being charged inflated energy bills. To make the matters worse, he said, theft of electricity was also on peak.
He said that, in spite of plunging the country into a serious crisis, the rulers hoped to win the next elections. However, he said, if the gang remained in power for another five years, the country would be completely ruined.
Munawar Hasan said that the corruption mafia was exploiting the masses fully and the country’s wealth had been concentrated into a few hands. The common man was unable to make both ends meet, he said.
On the one hand, he said, the rulers were plundering national wealth and filling their coffers, on the other hand, billions of rupees from the public exchequer were being dolled out to the PPP Jeyalas in the name of Benazir Income Support Programme. He said that Muslim rulers were acting as agents of the Kufr (the infidel) instead of working for the advancement of Islam.
He appealed to the faithful to pray for the Muslims of Kashmir Afghanistan, Burma and Palestine.
