Jamaat-e-Islami calls Awami March to combat inflation and corruption

Ameer of Jamaat-e-Islami Sirajul Haq has made the announcement that a major “Awami march” will be staged to protest the rising cost of living, the corruption of politicians, and the current system for determining interest rates in the country.

At a news conference that took place today, Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Sirajul Haq said that the Awami March, which would be held against growing inflation, corruption, and the interest rate system, will begin on June 11 in Lahore.

When speaking to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the JI Ameer said that rather than selling garments, Shehbaz Sharif should focus on putting an end to inflation and corruption.

Sirajul Haq remarked that he had been demanding the same thing since the beginning of the previous month, referring to Prime Minister Shehbaz’s promise to convene a “great dialogue” between all of the country’s stakeholders. He went on to say that if politicians refused to cooperate with one another for the sake of democracy, then it would be impossible for the country to make any headway.

According to Sirajul Haq, if the current government is in possession of a solution to the issues, they ought to implement it as quickly as humanly possible. He went on to say that “at the present time, there is a dummy opposition in the country.”

He went on to tell Prime Minister Shehbaz that instead of selling garments, he should put an end to corruption and reject the program of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). He also added that any secret agreements should be submitted to the National Assembly (NA).

The JI Ameer also disapproved of the existing system and stated that the Panama and Pandora Papers contain the names of a number of influential political figures. He emphasized that changing the individuals involved was not the answer to the issues at hand.

A call for electoral reform was also made by Sirajul Haq, who said that elections are being manipulated with the use of financial resources. “We have chosen candidates in forty-five percent of the constituencies,”. “All of our preparations are finished,” he continued.

In reference to the region of Kashmir that is currently ruled by India, he stated that around 4.5 million Indian residents have been relocated to the occupied valley and issued identity cards there. He expressed sadness, saying that “our government has lost the case of Kashmiris.”
