Jamat-e-Islami refuses to become part of ‘anti democratic’ protests

Sirajul Haq

LAHORE – The chief of Jamat-e-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq has categorically denied any possibility of becoming part of any demonstration, protest or movement which could derail the democracy in the country.

Siraj was speaking to media on Saturday when for the first time he presented remarks about Pakistan Tehreek-e-Inaf (PTI)’s May 11 protest plan.

However, Siraj also said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s government should ponder on the point that what were the reasons of these protest. “What is the reason that PML-N government has yet to give second budget and there are rumors against it? Have they completed their election promises? If they have forgotten the promises then we the copies of their manifesto,” JI’s chief added.

He also said that in Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa (KPK) there was a coalition government. “We want to compete in serving people with the government of Punjab. We do not wish any government to end like this,” he added.

PakistanTribe had already reported exclusively on May 7 that JI would not become the part of May 11 protests.

PakistanTribe also reported that that since KPK’s coalition partner JI refused to become part of PTI-led protest, Khan and other leaders approached Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q)’s leadership for the support.

It is pertinent to mention here that earlier today Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had offered Imran Khan to come meet him in Prime Minister house and forget about the May 11 protest.
