Siraj for strategy to get rid of US pressure

Siraj for strategy to get rid of US pressure

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami Amir Senator Sirajul Haq has stressed upon political and military leadership of the country to work out a common strategy to get rid of the US pressure in the future.

Talking to different delegations at Mansoora on Sunday, he said the US pressure on this country and its demands to ”Do More” had become a bane for the country’s security. He said the US attitude had always been authoritarian and not friendly. He said the US presence in the region aimed not at promoting peace but at building India as regional policeman and to oversee China.  

The JI chief said that Washington had never stood by Pakistan during the last 70 years. On the other hand, it had betrayed this country in every difficult hour. It was primarily because of the US that the Kashmir and Palestine issues had not been resolved as the US had stood by India and Israel although India and Israel were committing untold brutalities on the Kashmiris and the Palestinian Muslims. 

The US, he said, had thrust a war on the Muslims all over the world in the name of terrorism. Millions of Muslims had been massacred in Iraq and Afghanistan while Syria was currently being destroyed. He said Pakistan had suffered the most for being a US ally in the Afghan war and around one lakh Pakistanis had lost their lives. The financial losses in the Afghan war ranged around 100 billion dollars. Despite that, he said, whenever Islamabad tried for ceasefire with the Afghan leaders, the US sabotaged that. This proved that the US intentionally wanted to prolong the conflict in Afghanistan. 

He said that the rulers would have to cut down their luxurious spending and move toward self-reliance in order to strengthen national security and achieve autonomy which would require reducing budget deficit and enhance exports. 

The JI chief said the JIT report had exposed the rulers. Every page of the JIT report mentioned the rulers’ wealth but did not explain the sources of their earning and it seemed the rulers had Allah Din’s lamp which helped them to mint money. He said the ruling elite had made the country and the nation slave of the US and the IMF only to continue their luxurious living. That was why, the US ordered Islamabad to “Do More” every other day and the US interference in our policies had increased. Despite that the rulers putting the vital national interest at stake to please Washington, the US had neither acknowledged Pakistan’s sacrifices for the US nor trusted the rulers.
