Islamabad [Pakistan], Oct.12 (ANI): Urging the masses to unite to end the rule of corrupt privileged regimes with the power of their vote, Jamaat-i-Islami Chief and Senator, Siraj-ul-Haq has said that any attempt to shelter corruption and corrupt elements in the name of democracy will be thwarted.

While, addressing a daylong party convention here on Tuesday, Haq said that the imperial regime was responsible for the dismal condition of the country and its institutions.

The JI chief termed the struggle against tyranny Great Jihad and recalled that the holy month of Muharram taught the message of sacrifice, martyrdom, migration and Jihad. He added that bringing bad name to mosques, Islam, Jihad and Ulema through terrorism could be someone's agenda to please the US but not the Almighty, reports the Dawn.

The senator stated that an action should be taken against all criminal elements across the board, as the writ of law called for indiscriminate action.

Asserting that the people of Karachi had been oppressed for a long time and they were held hostage and deprived of their due rights, he said that it's high time that their issues are resolved.

Haq promised that the past glory of Karachi would be restored. He said that the country would lead the Islamic world, as the social system introduced by Islam was the only way to end injustice, poverty and inflation. (ANI)
