JI urges govt to implement SC orders on Balochistan
14 October, 2012
LAHORE: The Jamaat Islami (JI) on Saturday asked the government to implement orders of the Supreme Court in Balochistan law and order case.
Reacting to the decision of the Supreme Court on Balochistan issue, JI chief Munawar Hasan demanded that the government execute the orders of the court. He said the Supreme Court had issued orders on Karachi situation but no steps were taken to improve the law and order in the city and no culprits were taken to task.
In a press statement, he demanded that the Balochistan government step down in the light of the decision of the Supreme Court. "After the apex court order the provincial government has lost its constitutional right to rule," he added.
He said the federal government had also failed to solve Balochistan issue and gave nothing to the Baloch in the name of relief packages. "Now, the time has come that federal government should acknowledge its inability to address the Baloch issues and apologize to the nation," he added.
He held the Balochistan government for the worsening law and order situation in the province saying it had kept mum over the subversive activities of the anti-state elements under the patronage of the US and India. He was of the opinion that the security and secret agencies had worsened the Balochistan situation.
"It is the duty of the security agencies to provide protection to the people but they have done contrary to it," he added.
