‘MMA reactivation decision soon’


February 15, 2018

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami secretary-general Liaqat Baloch has said the central leaders of MMA would decide to activate the religious alliance within a few days, adding that the dates of the meetings of central leaders and central council were being finalised.

Addressing a meeting with the leaders of Jamiat-e-Ittehad-e-Ulema and different religious parties on Wednesday, he said the masses and religious circles were keenly awaiting the reinvigoration of MMA for the enforcement of Shariah in the country and the elimination of corruption from the motherland. Liaqat Baloch said Pakistan was a great blessing of Allah but the prevailing situation was a matter of great concern for the nation.

He hoped that 2018 elections would prove a milestone in the battle between the agents of US and India and the forces vying for the enforcement of Islam. Meanwhile, JI naib ameer Rashid Naseem while addressing the participants of JI central workshop at Mansoora said the only way to solve the problems of Karachi was to hold impartial and transparent elections and give a chance to the truly elected leadership of Karachiites. He said the problems of the mega city could not be resolved by any artificial leadership.

He said an attempt was being made to create an atmosphere of fear in the port city due to which the 250 million residents were looking at the rulers with feelings of anxiety. He said Karachi was mini Pakistan and people from most of the Muslim countries resided there. Likewise, people belonging to different regions and districts of Pakistan were also working in the port city. He said Karachi had always been the centre of Islamic forces but had suffered during the last three decades as its citizens were deprived of true representatives. He said JI had served the people of Karachi without any regional or ethnic bias.
