LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq has said the nation’s eyes are on the Supreme Court to play an important role in pulling the country out of the present crisis.
“If the judiciary had decided all the issues on time, the public wouldn’t have to come out on roads,” he said while speaking to different delegations at Mansoora on Monday.
The JI chief said had the record of the rulers been clean they would not have hesitated to set up a commission to probe Panama Leaks.
If the judiciary had decided on the issues of Panama Leaks on time, the public wouldn’t have taken to the streets, he added.
Siraj deplored the arrests of political workers, saying the government’s job was not to close roads and streets for the public.
He urged the government to immediately open the roads to facilitate the public, adding that the right to protest could not be taken away from anyone.
