JI not to attend APC
Jamaat-e-Islami has decided to stay away from opposition parties’ All Parties Conference (APC), describing its agenda as vague and objectives as doubtful.
JI ameer Senator Sirajul Haq while addressing a seminar, said “The JI could not sit with those parties which are equally responsible with the PTI for economic and social destruction of the country, and dubiously supported the legislative agenda of PTI to push the country in the slavery of colonial powers.”
Sirajul Haq expressed doubts on the real objective of today’s APC, saying the meeting could not come forward with a clear and solid strategy to bring the country out of crises.
However, he said, holding the APC was the democratic right of the opposition parties and one could only hope it would make some positive impact on future politics.
He said the opposition parties gathering must present their program before the masses aimed at ridding them from the problems and crises they faced.
He said two major opposition parties tactfully backed the government proposed FATF-related legislation in the National Assembly and the Senate despite knowing that the laws would push the country in the permanent slavery of the global capitalists and colonial powers.
