LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Munawar Hassan has strongly reacted to Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani’s statement that a US apology on Salala attack won’t bring back our soldiers.
“Gilani’s statement in this respect is an open invitation to the lawbreakers and terrorists to create chaos in the country and refuse to accept the rule of the Constitution and the law,” he said while talking to various delegations at Mansoora on Tuesday.
The JI chief said that if Gilani’s argument was to be accepted, all the murderers, terrorists and saboteurs lying in jails should be set free as their imprisonment won’t bring back their victims nor would their being jailed benefit the aggrieved families in any way.
Besides, he said, this reasoning suggests that all law courts and law enforcing agencies should be disbanded as they were simply useless.
Hassan charged that after Speaker National Assembly passed a ruling in his favour, Gilani seemed to be ‘out of his senses’ and was issuing statements which made no sense.
“In a recent interview to a TV channel, Gilani had the audacity to say that all those who wanted to leave the country, should leave. This was an insult to the patriotic people of the country,” said the JI chief.
