De­lay in ac­count­abil­ity lead­ing an­ar­chy: Baloch

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

LAHORE—Sec­re­tary Gen­eral, Ja­maat-e-Is­lami, Li­aqat Baloch said that the po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship was push­ing the coun­try to­wards an­ar­chy by de­lay­ing the process of ac­count­abil­ity.

Speak­ing at an If­tar party on Sun­day , he said that if an au­ton­o­mous ju­di­cial com­mis­sion for in­dis­crim­i­nate ac­count­abil­ity of the cor­rupt was not con­sti­tuted soon, there would be peo­ple’s com­mis­sions on roads and cross­ings for the re­cov­ery of the plun­dered wealth from the cor­rupt.

Li­aqat Baloch said that elim­i­na­tion of child labour was the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the state. He said that the fed­er­a­tion and the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments should not be con­tent with ob­serv­ing Days and fram­ing new laws, but should take prac­ti­cal steps to solve the prob­lems of the masses in the fields of ed­u­ca­tion, health and em­ploy­ment. He said it was the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the state to know the fac­tors which forced the par­ents to ruin the fu­ture of their chil­dren by deput­ing them to do odd jobs only to sup­ple­ment fam­ily in­come, and try to re­move these fac­tors.

Mean­while, Deputy chief of the Ja­maat-e-Is­lami, Pak­istan, Hafiz Muham­mad Idrees, has said that killing an in­no­cent per­son was a ma­jor sin and the mur­derer was li­able to face eter­nal pun­ish­ment in hell.

Ad­dress­ing the wor­ship­pers at the Man­soora mosque, he said that un­der the Shariah, no­body had the right to take up arms and kill some­one. He said it was di­vine de­cree that who­ever killed a sin­gle in­di­vid­ual un­law­fully, killed the en­tire hu­man­ity. He said that if the law of Qisas was ap­pli­ca­ble on some­one, the cul­prit was li­able to be pun­ished only by a court un­der the law on the ba­sis of clear ev­i­dence. How­ever, he said that if the rulers started killing the peo­ple, the world would be­come hell.

Hafiz Muham­mad Idrees said that at present, the blood of the Mus­lims was be­ing shed all over the world. The main rea­son was that the Mus­lim rulers had re­volted against Is­lam and be­come slaves of the US. He de­plored that death was so wide­spread in Syria, Bangladesh, Pales­tine, Egypt, Kashmir and Gaza.

He said that the Mus­lim world needed an hon­est and coura­geous lead­er­ship that could re­solve all prob­lem of the Ummah.—SABAH
