ISLAMABAD: Jamaat-i-Islami chief Siraj-ul-Haq Monday called on Minister for Interior and Narcotics Control Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.
Both the leaders discussed overall political situation in the country and ongoing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) protest, said a press release.
“We have very patiently dealt with protests and sit-ins so far, but now the time has come to differentiate between peaceful democratic protest and civil disobedience,” the minister said.
He said there was no room for any protest, which caused blockade of roads and closure of business, in any democratic country across the world. Neither, it could be allowed to paralyze the lives of ordinary citizens, anywhere.
“We should not only advocate the spirit of democracy and law in speeches, but must reflect so, by our actions also,” the minister added.
Chaudhry Nisar said to achieve political stability in the country, all the political parties have to sit together. “If any particular party has some reservations, then it has all the right, to plead its case in the court of law.”
He said the Pakistan Muslim League-N would support any initiative, which resulted into the country’s progress and helped restore peace.
Siraj-ul-Haq said that his party was fully committed and determined to extend support in achieving political stability in the country. The minister appreciated the role of Jamat-e-Islami’s chief and his party.
