LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan and the Ikhwanul Muslimoon (Muslim Brotherhood) of Egypt have decided to make joint efforts to promote Islam and find solutions to issues faced by Muslims.

The top leadership of the two parties met at the Ikhwanul Muslimoon headquarters in Cairo on Wednesday.

Both the parties also decided to strengthen the relations between the Islamic movements in different countries and to negate propaganda against Islam.

A three member JI delegation led by party chief, Syed Munawar Hasan is currently on a four-day visit to Egypt at the invitation of Ikhwanul Muslimoon chief Dr Muhammad Badei.

Formal talks between the two sides were held between Hasan, Secretary General Liaquat Baloch and Foreign Affairs chief Abdul Ghaffar Aziz and Dr Badei, Secretary General Dr Mehmudul Hasan and other central leaders.

The two sides held detailed discussions and underscored the need for closer ties between Islamic movements all over the world.

Hasan congratulated the Ikhwanul Muslimoon leadership and Egyptian people on the successful revolution in their country. He also paid homage to the martyrs of the Tehrir Square and welcomed the recognition of the Ikhwanul Muslimoon's legal status.

Being a neutral analyst, this is cent per cent true that Jamat-e-Islami is the only democratic party in Pakistan conducting regular internal elections and following strict rules and guidelines. The only party that can orgainze Pakistan if taken seriously. All others are thugs and looters.
