LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Syed Munawar Hasan on Saturday warned that they would besiege the Parliament, if NATO supply lines are restored.
Addressing a press conference on the third day of the central Advisory Shura's meeting at Mansoora, Hasan said that any step, which is detrimental to national sovereignty, would not be accepted.
The parliamentary committee headed by Senator Raza Rabbani was due to present recommendation to the Parliament for restoring supplies to NATO forces.
He pointed out that reports were emerging in the American media that Pakistan had agreed to restore NATO supplies on certain conditions.
Hasan also added that there were reports that a resolution would be moved in the Parliament's upcoming session on February 3 to restore supply lines.
"This will never prove to be in the interest of the masses," the JI chief cautioned.
JI’s Professor Khursheed Ahmed, Dr Muhammad Kamal, Sirajul Haq, Secretary General Liaquat Baloch, provincial heads, Muhammad Hussain Mehanti and central information secretary Muhammad Anwar Khan Niazi were also present in the meeting.

@Sajid: "the revolutionary guards of PTI’s Tsunami"
Following JI footsteps PTI will end up nowhere. Its part of the radical bunch. We must stay clear from PTI for the sake of the country.
Only JI can attempt at doing something like this and succeeding. Their street-power is matchless.
Why didn't they threaten to storm parliament for the past 8 years this was going on? Did they just realize that this isn't ok with them?
Before besieging Parliament, JI should return all dollars it took from USA during Zia-ul-Haque times.
Jamat ud Dawa, Lashkar e Jhangwi, Sipah e Sahaba, and the revolutionary guards of PTI's Tsunami will be with you in this "progressive" outing.
Answer this first, why did JI took funding from US to further American interests?
