KARACHI: Pakistan People’s party (PPP) strongly reacted on a statement of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Sami (JUI-S) chief Maulana Sami ul Haq in which he had warned former President Asif Ali Zardari for being critical to KP government’s move to grant Rs 300 million to his religious seminary in budget for fiscal year 2016-17.
According to statement issued by PPP media cell, MNAs Mir Munawar Talpur, Aijaz Hussain Jakhrani and Nawab Ali Wassan said that those, who shout louder hardly do anything practical.
“It is the PPP, which has been facing strong media trial since past seven years, the terrorist organisations under the aegis of seminaries like that of Haqqania prevented it from election campaigns, murdered Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed, kidnapped PPP Punjab’s former Governor Salman Taseer’s son Shahbaz Taseer, kidnapped former Prime Minister Syed Yousuf raza Gilani’s son Ali Gilani and murdered former federal minister Shahbaz Bhatti,” it claimed.
The statement comes a day after Sami said: “If Zardari opens his mouth again, I will disclose some secrets, after which he will be unable to stand in front of his Western masters.”
The PPP leaders said the forces of evils could not eliminate the party and damage the sanctity of Pakistan but they are being eliminated very fast.
They said that PPP is not against education but only opposes the spread of extremism and terrorism, which is unfortunately a landmark of certain seminaries.
The PPP wanted the Khyber Pakhtunkhawa government to stop funding the seminaries and focus on improving the modern education and up gradation of schooling system. – SMAA
