LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) naib ameer Liaqat Baloch and head of Jamia Urwatul Wusqa Allama Syed Jawad Naqvi have warned that certain elements are trying to fan sectarianism and extremism through conspiracies and irresponsible attitude, against the wishes of overwhelming majority of Pakistanis who believe in unity, solidarity and harmony.
Baloch who is also Secretary General of Milli Yakjehti Council, a platform of all religious schools of thought, called on Allama Jawad Naqvi to discuss the ways and means to counter the enemy conspiracies aimed at destabilising the country. Baloch said a consultative meeting on the issue of National Unity of the Ummah will be convened on August 1 to draw up a plan of action. The meeting of the Supreme Council of MYC will be held on August 5 hosted by Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslemin (MWM).
Earlier, talking to media, Liaqat Baloch said during his meeting with the participants of Balochistan at the recent JI Central Consultative meeting, the Baloch leaders lamented that the powerful forces of the federation had been bypassing the people and youth of Balochistan in decision making, and depriving them of their rights, education, health facilities and employment by patronising the chiefs, vested interests and the corrupt groups.
