Hyderabad, May 6 (ANI): Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Amir Syed Munawar Hassan has called for an immediate end to the ongoing Pakistani military operation against The Taliban in restive Swat valley.
Speaking to reporters at the Hyderabad Press Club here on Wednesday, Munawar Hassan said that he was against the military operation in Swat valley.
“Every action has a reaction. We should talk about action instead of reaction,” The News quoted him, as saying.
JI Amir said that the government had been acting on the dictation of America, ignoring the unanimous resolution passed by the two houses of the parliament.
Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari should stop deceiving the nation in the name of reconciliation, Hassan commented.
Replying to a question, he stated that Chief Justice of Pakistan should work with regard to the FIR in Benazir Bhutto murder case.
He further said that Awami National Party should be held responsible for the assassination of Pakhtuns in the North West Frontier Province.
Hassan called on People Party not to avoid blackmailing of Muttahida Qaumi Movement in Sindh. (ANI)
