Siraj concerned over growing confrontation in Gulf

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan Ameer Senator Sirajul Haq has expressed deep concern over the growing confrontation in the Gulf and said the Zionists were once again trying to make the Muslim world a battle field.

Addressing a Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, Siraj said that the protection of the holy land and the Haramain Sharifain was the duty of not Saudi Arabia alone but of the entire Muslim world and the Muslims all over the world were ready to lay down their lives for the security of their spiritual centre. However, he said that there was need for great care and caution to handle the issue.

He said like Iran-Iraq war some international powers now wanted to trigger a war between Saudi Arabia and Iran because such a conflict between Muslim states would help the enemy powers to sell their arms and ammunition besides taking over the Muslim world’s resources. He said that Pakistan should try to cool down the situation in order to foil the enemy designs.

Senator Sirajul Haq said the Muslim world should try to resolve its issues through dialogue and avoid providing an opportunity to the enemies to achieve their agenda through war between different Muslim states.

The situation demanded that the leadership of the Muslim world should sit down and resolved their issues through talks and mutual understanding.

On the national issues, the JI chief said that all the problems of the country and the nation could be solved with the enforcement of the Shariah.
