Jamat-e-Islami (JI) leader Sirajul Haq has recommended that the government and opposition appoint Dr Abdul Qadir Khan for the position of caretaker prime minister.
While addressing a rally in Karak, Sirajul Haq said Dr Abdul Qadir should be made caretaker prime minister as he possess a neutral personality.
"Dr Qadir has made Pakistan an Islamic atomic power which is a stupendous and unforgettable feat," he said.
The Jamat-e-Islami ameer said that General (rtd) Pervez Musharraf earlier came under US pressure and placed restrictions on Dr Abdul Qadir Khan and kept him under house arrest while India held the prestige of its atomic scientist and made him the president.
"There is a need to redress Musharraf’s injustice and repay Dr Abdul Qadir Khan’s virtue for the nation by honouring him."
He further said, "I congratulate Xi Jinping for taking the presidency charge once again. I expect that a new era of progression and happiness will begin under his leadership".
