LAHORE: The Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) on Monday responded to an ISPR press release regarding Munawar Hassan’s remarks, saying that the army did not have the right to directly interfere in political affairs.
JI leader Liaqat Baloch spoke to reporters following a meeting of the party’s Majlis-e-Shura which was also attended by Munawar Hassan. Baloch said the ISPR had issued a ‘political’ press release. “The army does not have the right to interfere in political and democratic affairs.”
According to Liaqat Baloch, those with a specific purpose and mentality were behind diverting attention to personal debates. “The issue at hand is the closure of Nato supplies and drone attacks.”
The JI leader said his party was willing to offer any kind of sacrifice for the country. “JI has always (paid) tribute to the martyrs of Pakistan Army.”
On Sunday night, the ISPR issued a press release strongly condemning ‘the irresponsible and misleading’ remarks of Munawar Hassan in TV programme, declaring dead terrorists as shaheeds (martyrs) while insulting the shahadat (martyrdom) of thousands of innocent Pakistanis and soldiers of the army.
The press release called for an unconditional apology from Hassan for hurting the feelings of the families of Pakistani soldiers who were martyred while fighting terrorists.
