MANSEHRA: Vowing to observe December 14-16 as black days, Jamaat-e-Islami leader Liaqat Baloch Sunday blamed the pro-US polices behind the growing incidents of terrorism in the country.
“There are proofs of US and Indian involvements in terrors activities in the country but the rulers are bent on killing their own countrymen,” he said. The JI leader condemned the series of blasts in the country, adding, there was no room for terrorism in Islam. “Islam is a religion of peace and some elements are out to earn a bad name to it by carrying out such activities,” he told reporters after speaking at a convention of the party.
JI leaders Possessor Muhammad Ibrahim, Mairajuddin, Tariq Sherazi and Youas Khattak were also present on the occasion. Liaqat Baloch said the government should try to resolve issues through talks.
“War is no solution to problems and the government must hold talks with Taliban for a durable peace in the country,” he added. He said Interior Minister Rehman Malik had contacted him seeking party’s cooperation and he would respond after consulting the leadership.
To a question, the JI general secretary said US and India were involved in the Rawalpindi and Peshawar attacks and the government should abandon its pro-America policies. He said that his party would observe the December 14 to 16 as black day against current spate of terrorism and Indian and American involvement in the terror activities.
Baloch said the Awami National Party-led NWFP government had failed to protect Pakhtuns. Baloch said that the US embassy in federal capital had been changed into a ‘mini-Pentagon’ and the government should realise the seriousness of the situation.
Baloch said that after the withdrawal of National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) bill from the National Assembly, the people wanted the Supreme Court to help recover the plundered national wealth. He said the SC would hear the National Reconciliation Ordinance cases today and the JI would establish a welcome camp outside the court building to appreciate the role of the apex court.
