Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

QILA SAIFULLAH— Ameer, Ja­maat- e- Is­lami, Pak­istan, Sen­a­tor Si­ra­jul Haq, has said that the Adyala jail was be­ing given a fresh look these days and the em­per­ors of to­day along with their princes would soon be there hand­cuffed.

He was ad­dress­ing a big pub­lic meet­ing at Qila Saifullah on the sec­ond day of his visit to Balochis­tan on Sun­day.

Si­ra­jul Haq coun­seled the Prime Min­is­ter not to look for av­enues of escape from ac­count­abil­ity, and in­stead talk of a ruth­less ac­count­abil­ity.

He said the day when true ac­count­abil­ity started, none of the past and present rulers would be spared.

He said the very ex­ist- ence of Pak­istan was threat­ened due to cor­rup­tion and de­manded that the plun­der­ers and cor­rupt peo­ple must be tried for ter­ror­ism in or­der to save the coun­try and they be ex­e­cuted at cross­ings and pub­lic places as a warn­ing for their com­ing gen­er­a­tions.

The JI chief ap­pealed to the Chief Jus­tice of the Supreme Court to take suo moto no­tice of the de­lay in the in­tro­duc­tion of Urdu in the ju­di­ciary and the gov­ern­ment of­fices.

Si­ra­jul Haq said that the Prime Min­is­ter’s sons had them­selves ad­mit­ted their off shore com­pa­nies in Panama.

He said that when the Prime Min­is­ter had trans­ferred his wealth abroad to avoid taxes, what moral right he had to ask the masses to pay their bills and taxes.

Are the poor masses there only to pay for the lux­u­ries be­ing en­joyed by the rul­ing elite, he asked.

He said that Balochis­tan was at the peak in cor­rup­tion and bil­lions of ru­pees had been re­cov­ered from the house of the pro­vin­cial Fi­nance Sec­re­tary. He said that if NAB be­gan true ac­count­abil­ity, many more big fish would be hauled up who would have to spend their re­main­ing life be­hind the bars.

The JI chief said that the sec­ond Panama Leaks would be out on May nine and was ex­pected to in­clude the names of five hun­dred Pak­ista­nis in­clud­ing peo­ple from the es­tab­lish­ment, cap­i­tal­ists and feu­dal lords.

He said that these were the peo­ple who came to power af­ter the Bri­tish rulers left and es­tab­lished their hold on the coun­try’s pol­i­tics and econ­omy.

The main aim of these peo­ple had been to de­prive the masses of the last morsel of food and deny hem the ba­sic fa­cil­i­ties of ed­u­ca­tion and health, he added.

Si­ra­jul Haq stressed upon the po­lit­i­cal par­ties to adopt per­ma­nent sys­tem of ac­count­abil­ity within and weed out the cor­rupt from their ranks be­fore go­ing for elec­tions.— SABAH
