Munawar sticks to his stand on martyrdom

November 11, 2013

ATTOCK: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Syed Munawar Hassan has said that he stuck to his opinion of considering Hakimullah Mehsud as a martyr and not viewing soldiers as such.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday before the ISPR statement, he strongly criticised the PML-N government saying that the government conspired with the US and played a vital role in killing Hakimullah. He said that on clear-cut assurances of the government for a dialogue, Hakimullah surfaced from his hideout but at the same time the US in league with the government targeted and killed him.
The JI Ameer also severely criticised recent statements and steps taken by Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali Khan saying that the APC had not authorised the government to decide secret matters with the Taliban but it was cleared that the dialogue will be crystal clear and all political parties will be taken into confidence.
