KARACHI:


A coalition government consisting of the Jamaat-e-Islami, Muslim League-Nawaz and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf could find a way out of national crises, said JI secretary general Liaquat Baloch on Monday.

He was speaking at a leadership convention organised by the party’s district west for potential national and provincial assembly candidates in the upcoming elections. JI Karachi chief Mohammad Hussain Mahenti and district west president Raja Arif Sultan were also present on the occasion.


Baloch said that his party was in constant contact with all major political and religious parties in the country over the present government, “which is bent on undermining the democratic norms and judiciary’s independence.”

While talking about the emergence of an electoral alliance of religious parties, Baloch said that Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal-like group could become a major power in the country. “If we and the Jamiat Ulema Islam (F) [contest] together in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, then we can definitely change the political landscape.”

Baloch added that his party wanted the country to get out of the ‘War on Terror,” and that “seeking an apology from the US before restoring Nato supply routes is equivalent to bringing shame and humiliation on the country.”

@mystreeman how is Ik a disappointment ? he is a disappointment just cause he spoke to JI comon grow up man we living in this world cant be a complete liberal as you trying to be ... Ik has done well to even change most of us attitude towards voting election these 2 parties monoply he has broken down the stranglehood of these 2 parties monoply on pakistani politics and he has given us youngsters renewed optimism that there is a light at the end of tunnel and yes i knwo on places he had to compromise but our society is so complex we had to do that mainly cause these 2 parties have kept most of our nation illiterate and not many people knows the right of vote etc so its a big achievement to even grow up as a strong political force which will influence in future decision making on our national and international issues and inshaAllah brighter days are ahead ..
