TI leader: Tanzeem-e-Islami ameer Shujauddin Shaikh said USA is reaping what it has sowed all over the world and now tasting its own medicine finally.

Washington has a long history of overthrowing, destabilising governments and instigating violent protests in other countries, particularly in Muslim states, he said in a statement on Friday. Today, Washington is facing the same violent protests inside home threatening to annihilate the political system of the US, he said.

The racist and social class-based tensions and hostilities were surging precipitously in the US pushing the country towards a civil war, he added. Shujauddin said that the masses and, in particular, the rulers of Pakistan must clearly understand that every worldly power or system eventually comes to an end.
