Nobody interested in new provinces: Munawar Hasan

Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Syed Munawar Hasan said on Friday that nobody was interested in the creation of new provinces and that the resolutions passed in this regard were political showdown tactics aimed at fooling people.
Addressing the Friday congregation at the Mansoora mosque, he said there was a clear mechanism for the creation of provinces in the constitution but no one was following that.
Syed Munawar Hasan said had the opposition been playing its role during the last four years, the parliament could not have had the courage to pass a resolution in support of the convicted prime minister.
He stated that the opposition had been helping the government to stabilise itself instead of strengthening itself.
He stressed upon the government to boycott the Chicago Conference in protest against the US’s refusal to tender an apology over the Silala attacks and its announcement to continue drone attacks.
He also condemned US pastor’s continuing acts of blasphemy and desecration of the Quran, and said it was clear that the culprit enjoyed state protection.
The US, he said, had gone mad in its enmity towards Islam and it considered every Muslim a terrorist.
He said the US could not claim to be civilised after repeated instances of desecration and blasphemy.
The ameer called for the resignation of the federal interior minister on his failure to maintain peace in Karachi.
He stated that nobody from the Pakistan People’s Party, including the president and the convicted prime minister, was prepared to accept failure.
He said the foreign policy devised on US dictation was contrary to the dignity and sovereignty of this country and that the US was acting on its agenda of building India as the regional power.
He added that the American and Pakistani interests were in conflict with each other and that Pakistan should pull out of the war on terror that had already done incalculable harm to the country and its economy.
Syed Munawar Hasan said Pakistan’s enmity towards India was not temporary or accidental and that India had not accepted Pakistan and desired a united India. The Indian occupation forces in Kashmir had killed over one lakh Kashmiri Muslim men, women and children and incidents of religious extremism against the Muslim were a routine, he said. The ameer said India was involved in water aggression against Pakistan and was out to deprive it of its share of the water but in spite of it, the country’s rulers were keen to befriend India which would only serve the enemy designs.
