September 8, 2012

PESHAWAR: Jamaat-e-Islami chief JI chief Syed Munawwar Hassan Friday warned the government of massive protests if any effort was made to delay the general elections on any pretext.
“Pakistan People’s Party-led coalition government is staging the drama of local bodies’ polls to delay the general elections, but we will foil all such efforts,” he told a youth convention here.
Led by JI chief Syed Munawwar Hassan, the party workers under the aegis of Shabab-e-Milli, staged the vehicular procession from Al-Markaz-e-Islami on the Grand Trunk Road and reached Wazir Bagh where the convention was held despite the rain.
The protesters were chanting slogans against the US and the federal and provincial governments.Munawwar Hassan reiterated his stance against the resumption of Nato supplies. “The Nato and the US are the enemies of Pakistan and we will never allow supply of lethal arms, liquor and pork to them,” he maintained.
He said that the US had lost the war in Afghanistan and was blaming others for its failure. He flayed the resumption of Nato supplies and the growing US interference in Pakistan’s affairs.The JI chief condemned the ruling parties for what he termed their flawed policies that could lead the country to the worst situation on every front.
He alleged that the corrupt practices of the rulers had caused disappointment among the masses. “The JI will steer the country out of the prevailing mess after coming into power,” he claimed.
Provincial president of JI Prof Mohammad Ibraheem Khan, vice-president Mushtaq Ahmad Khan, general secretary Shabbir Ahmad Khan, district president Bahrullah Khan and others also spoke on the occasion.
Shabbir Ahmad Khan claimed the JI would sweep the next general elections.Bahrullah Khan expressed concern over the losses caused by the recent rains in the provincial metropolis and asked the activists of Shahbab-e-Milli and volunteers of Al-Khidmat Foundation to utilise all their energies and

resources for the relief and rehabilitation of the affected people.He also announced to establish a fund for the relief of the people affected by rains and donated Rs 100,000 from his pocket in the fund.
