A JAMIAT Ulema-e- Pakistan meeting on Sunday, besides condemning blasphemous film released in the US, criticised the Punjab government for demolishing certain shrines to construct Rapid Bus Transit System.
JUP Central Executive Committee meeting, chaired by its acting President Sahibzada Awais Noorani, was held in Lahore. Awais Noorani said that the film released by the US had destroyed the peace of the country and people belonging to other religions were also lodging protest over it. He demanded of the US authorities to hand over the person responsible to them.
He said that they would not tolerate this blasphemous act at any cost and the Islamic countries should come out of alliance with the US.
He said that they were making efforts to unite right wing parties at a single platform and his party would fully participate in the upcoming polls.
The meeting was attended by Pir Ijaz Hashmi, Qari Zawar Behadur and other office-bearers.
Pir Ijaz Hashmi presented his report before the meeting regarding his contacts with MMA and PML-N leaders and claimed that they would succeed in cementing alliance with right wing parties.
Qari Zawar Bahadur condemned the incident of torching a factory in Karachi which claimed 300 precious lives. He said it was being alleged that it was torched just to receive Rs 500 million extortion money by a certain group.
The meeting also criticised Punjab government for demolishing certain shrines in the name of constructing RBTS.
