Karachi [Pakistan], Jan. 2 (ANI): Jamat-e-Islami (JI) chief Ameer Sirajul Haq has urged all Muslims to create a separate global Muslim entity to address the problems faced by the Islamic world. Addressing the Umat-e-Rasool march staged on Shahrae Quaideen, Siraj said the bloc of Muslim countries must abandon the so-called world body if the United Nations Security Council cannot move for 1.2 billion Muslims in the world. He called upon Muslims to make a joint military, market and formulate one syllabus. Haq accused the UN of hypocrisy saying that why international organisations are not even acknowledging the plight of Muslims. He said action is taken by them when they think it is necessary to protect the interests of world powers, Many people participated in the march carrying placards and banners, inscribed with slogans criticising the duplicity of Muslim rulers and apathy of international powers. Siraj said the march was an expression of solidarity with the oppressed Muslims across the world. He said Muslim women and children in Syria were subjected to rape, torture and execution. Siraj asked the government to play a proactive role against the brutalities being faced by Muslims. He said his party would ensure social justice if it ever came to power. (ANI)
