Baloch: Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Liaqat Baloch on Wednesday visited the families of the Sahiwal shooting victims. He inquired after the health of the wounded and shocked children and prayed for the departed souls.
Talking to the media and the family members, Liaqat Baloch urged the government not to hide the facts of the Sahiwal killings, show courage to accept the wrongdoing committed by police and try to rectify the situation instead of making it worse. He said any act of lawlessness committed by an individual, a party or a state institution was a crime of equal nature.
Liaqat Baloch alleged that the present government was protecting the anti-people elements. He said the government had failed to solve people’s problems and its third budget during one year proved the incompetence and the failure of the PTI. Solution to all our problems lies in corruption free governance and only the Islamic system under a neat and clean leadership could provide that, he said.
