We should complain own people for Bacha Khan University attack: Siraj


ISLAMABAD – Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq on Friday has criticised the government saying that we should comlain own people for attack on Bacha Khan University.

He directed his complaint towards the government over Bacha Khan University attack while addressing the Senate.

He demanded the government to explain extent of implementation on policy towards Afghanistan and National Action Plan (NAP). He also demanded the government to call an All Parties Conference (APC) to discuss policy that must be maintained towards Afghanistan.

Numerous terror attacks were carried out in different parts of country but the government does not want to transgress on any, he added.

The JI chief also mentioned Lal Masjid operation in his speech. He said that at least 600 killings were reported in the Rawalpindi operation but nothing has been proved till date. He demanded establishment of a truth commission to unmask the facts.

On the occasion, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F) leader Ataur Rehman said that seminaries are being shut while clerics ‘harassed’ in name of National Action Plan. The party has are copious reservations over the strategy chalked out by the government, he added.

Ataur Rehman said that clerics’ backs are being pushed against the wall while they are not siding with militants.

State Minister for Interior Baleeghur Rehman said that investigations have revealed that polio team was not the target of Quetta attack on January 13 but security personnel.

On Thursday, Haq had termed inadequate security at Charsadda university “regrettable.”

During his visit to the university, the JI leader said that security measures were not enough despite an arrangement of a poetry competition where six hundred people were invited.

He said that the rulers should consider this attack as an attack on Islamabad. Nefarious elements have commenced a war in the Islamic world, he added.

Senator Haq further said that added steps are required to save Pakistan from terrorism. He urged all the political leaders to come together against this menace.

He had also paid a visit to the District Headquarters Hospital (DHQ) Charsadda and inquired about the health of the injured students. He lauded the courage of the university students who were committed to eradicate the menace of terrorism from the country.
