JI claims there will be no peace as long as MQM is in govt

KARACHI: 

Jamaat-e-Islami chief Syed Munawwar Hasan stuck to the party line by offering contentious statements about the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Thursday. But as the parties have been at each other’s throats for years, Hasan’s sound bite failed to make a stir.

According to Hasan, while the MQM is in government, there cannot be law and order in Karachi. He was speaking at a press conference at the JI headquarters at one of his usual briefings when he is in town. During these press conferences, he habitually holds forth on every issue under the sun.

Hasan’s solution was to keep the MQM in the opposition and let the government deal with it in a “high-handed manner”.

Hasan pointed to three events: the attack on the Sunni Tehreek at Nishtar Park in 2006, clashes between the MQM and other parties on May 12, 2007 and the episode of April 9, 2008 when lawyers were burnt alive. He linked them to the MQM. “The footage of May 12 is available, everything is visible, it just needs to be investigated,” he said.

According to the JI chief, the Supreme Court had declared the Sindh government ineffective during its suo motu hearings on the violence that broke out last summer. Hasan felt that the provincial government should assess whether it had failed because of the Pakistan Peoples Party or its allies.

Hasan called the ongoing discussion on Pakistan-US relations a farce and stressed that there needed to be an end to drone strikes, enforced disappearances and military operations.

Hasan asked if the state had borne the expenses for President Asif Ali Zardari’s recent ‘private’ visit to India.

He said that the JI was concerned about the sectarian killings in Quetta and Gilgit-Baltistan and had spoken to other parties in the Difa-e-Pakistan Council, including Jamaatud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, on this spate of violence, which he said must be perpetrated by “enemies”.  He said he had spoken to Allama Abbas Kumaili, who has called a roundtable conference of all the parties, and that JI would participate as well.

Hasan told The Express Tribune that the bill on domestic violence, which was presented in the National Assembly recently, was a “copy of the bill presented in India, even though the cultural realities of our women are different. No other religion gives women as many rights as Islam does, but this was a non-governmental organisations’ bill and we would like amendments to it.”

Pre-election woes

Prior to Hasan’s address, JI Karachi chief Mohammad Hussain Mehanti repeated the party’s complaint of irregularities in the voter lists and alleged that the second run of verification was being carried out at the MQM offices. “There are a large number of people settled in Karachi from the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, rural Sindh and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and have businesses here,” he said. “But when the verification was done and they were asked whether Karachi was a permanent address for them, they mentioned their area of origin and now have been removed from the lists of Sindh altogether.”

Mehanti asked the Supreme Court to restore the names of 900,000 voters impacted by this to the lists of the area they live in. He alleged that about 2.4 million voters in Karachi were affected by issues with the list. Mehanti claimed that JI Sindh chief Asadullah Bhutto had also been disenfranchised. The party plans to meet with the chief election commissioner as well to discuss this.

    “No other religion gives women as many rights as Islam does”
    I would like to see his argument for that. That means quoting every other religious text to show they don’t.
    But, really, there’s no way the man has done that research required to do that. Which is mainly why the statement is so foolish.

    Syed Munawwar Hassan the chief of Jamat e Islamy, will continue with anti MQM mantra with no result. He must realize that it was due to hypocritical policy of his party that has brought it to this sorry state. People of Karachi and other major cities of Sindh continued supporting and voting for this party but this party never raised a voice for their basic human rights, even when all avenues to higher education and employment were closed on them. The more Syed Hassan will talk against MQM the more people will support MQM. People want a solution to their problems and any political party that will genuinely support their just demands will succeed cutting down the vote bank of MQM, not the empty rhetoric.Recommend

MQM did more for Karachi and Hyderabad, then BB ever did for Larkana or Leyari. MQM is a very aggressive party, but their aggressiveness has died down and the reason why they were aggressive in the first place was because of the operations that were carried out against them by PPP and PML – N. Only and only because when MQM started they had no sindhi waderas in their party and no big politician could handle middle class Mahajirs standing up and getting elected. Zulfiqar Mirza loves talking about how bad MQM is ask him to write down on a piece of paper all that he has done for Badin then compare that to what Mustafa Kamal did with Karachi.

This is also a fact that MQM has been supported by the Karachities for almost 2 decades why?.

That’s fair enough But why it doesnt apply to MQM because it uses the same tactics as Taliban. It’s not allegation, check Wikileaks, JITs, Supreme court observation and even international press, you will get the truth that who is killing machine in Karachi. Who uses power of gun to win Karachi. They have made Karachi a haunted City. They fight with every ethnic group, Sindhis who gave them land and shelter, Pakhtoons, Balochs, Punjabis (who always supported them), even now their own Mohajirs.

Stop blaming mqm for every thing in KArachi.

    About Naimatullah Khan, he was a positive minded mayor, though not as dedicated as Mustafa Kamal because he didnt have a plan or team to execute the plan for Infrastructure of KArachi.
    This guy lost all my respect, when in the summer of 2006 after staying mayor for 5 years, he blamed Mustafa Kamal as responsible for rain water accumulation in KPT under (schön circle), knowing full well that that area doesnt fall under jurisdiction of CDGK but DHA.
    Either he was that (playing drty politics blame game) or he was so ignorant that he didnt even knew which area he was responsible for during last 5 years. in both cases he turned out to be bad.

    @ Syed Faisal,
    these differences emerged not by the conception of MQM, but during the era of Bhutto the main source of contention was the qouta system.
    Agreed MQM did initially exploit this but it was not alone PPP, and ANP were always there in KArachi with the same tactics. but since last 10 years I personally have seen MQM trying to turn away from this ethnic role to national role, but every time MQM makes a move in Punjab something Major happens in Karachi, coincidence?? I dont think so.
    1991 Nawaz Shareef was one of the supporters of Altaf Hussain in politcs, but when MQM announced that they are planning to change from Muhajir to Mutaheda, 1992 happened.
    next stop 2007 MQM oppened offices in Punjab, spent fortune there, 12 May happened, 90% of the offices either bunrend or ransacked.
    Come to 2009-10 MQM again tries to enter in Punjab , Ethnic feud once again starts in Karachi, (Ironically this time it started when ANP decided to raise the issue of 12 May not in judiciary but in Public, we all know what Shahi Syed said in that speech). And this episode was continued by Zulfikar Mirza, because PPP had lost their votes to nationalists in Sindh (but thanx to divide and rule rheotics of ZM, it came crawling back to PPP).
    Whenever it spends time and money in Punjab, the very next week ethnic conflict arises in Karachi, MQM is not that stupid if it wanted to raise ethnic clash it wouldnt have spend so much money in Punjab just a week before.
    Come to think of it take any ethnic fued after the inception of MQM you will see that a week or month before they tried to expand to Politics to non Muhajir areas.
    PEACE OUT.

    @To all of the above haters of MQM.
    This is the very certain reason that MQM came into existence. Before MQM the Mandate of Karachi was divided among PPP, JI and NAP(now ANP). PPP did not even open a single school in larakana, lyari was far away. NAP was there just to occupy illegal goths, and J.I was there to propogate Zia-ul-Haq dictation and recruit people from mosque to fight in Kashmir.
    The whole populace was turning into a melting pot, and there was no one to raise concerns about the radicalism spreading in the society.
    There was quota for SINDHies to have jobs and universities seats, there was quota for Punjab domicile holders, there was quota for Baluch domicile holder, there was quota for army officer spouse and kin, and even quota for the MNA’s and MPA’s.
    BUT there was no quota for urdu speaking people, or to say resident of Karachi. (I am complaining about mohajir quota).
    To say, People of Karachi were ORPHAN in political terms and hence were on the losing side. That was reason MQM came into existence, eventhough many people supported it, but there were many others who were candid in the begining.
    BUT THANKS to J.I stance, they became so aggravated in loosing the mandate that they started this nonsense blames, which in turns increased MQM mandate overtime.
    Thank you J.I and like people for further polarizing the society by your Fatally doctronized brains.
    i still remember reading the magazine called “takbeer” owned by J.I. who used to plot MQM in a manner that a SPACE WAR is going on.
    Lastly thanks to PPP/PMLn for not delivering in Karachi!! i guess they have to deliver first in their mandated area(larkana/lyari/lahore/punjab).
    WE WILL VOTE for MQM not that of they deserve it, but litteraly becasue WE SCARE OF YOUR broad base, intellectuallly emplified wisdom.

No one gave them their land to farm and no one gave them food for free.

    The last party that should accuse any group of being violent is Jamaat-e-Islami. The Jamaat happens to be the torch bearer of the arms culture and it was this party that destroyed educational institutes by arming its student wing and the youth all over Pakistan to terrorize competing student organizations. They were puppets of the Zia regime and established a horrible trend of violence amongst youth. The MQM was not even formed when the Jamaat was up to its violent games. No wonder, the people of Karachi and Hyderabad got fed up with the Jamaat’s hypocrisy and started voting in huge numbers for the MQM. Mr. Munawwar Hasan should know that the incidents of violence that he has cited have not been investigated and that only through an investigation can one know who was behind these. Demanding an investigation is correct; blaming a group or individual without proof speaks volumes about the hypocritical state of mind of this self-righteous gentleman who represents a party claimed to have been formed on principles of righteousness and Islam. The Supreme Court has already included Jamaat in the list of groups whose activists are possibly involved in extortion. Maybe, Mr. Hasan should call for an investigation into that too.

    Hence the WASP ahd all the rights to decide who they would let to come and settle in the USA .Half of my kins have migrated to the USA , trust me all of them were economic migrants .So shouldnt we consider the same pattern whether you should share OUR resources build by us , as an economic migrant OR NOT !!!!!!!???????!!!!Recommend
