JI leaders criticise govt, call for a ‘revolution’

May 10, 2010

A revolution is “the need of the time” as the General Headquarters and the Prime Minister House serve only the interest of the US, said Jamati- Islami (JI) amir Munawar Hassan at a rally near the Ramba Plaza.

“Rulers have turned Pakistan into a colony of the United States,” said JI’s Karachi chapter amir Muhammad Hussain Mehnti. Hassan said that the JI will initiate a protest in Islamabad to “force the government and its supporting pillars, the Awami National Party and the Jamiat Ulama-i-Islam, to abide by the decisions of the Supreme Court”.

He also demanded action against those involved in the May 12, April 9 and 12th of Rabiul Awwal incidents in Karachi. “Those who got votes from Karachi did nothing for the benefit of its people,” said Asadullah Bhutto. The people of Karachi are suffering power cuts and price hikes but the government does not care about these problems, Mehnti said.
