LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan chief Syed Munawar Hassan has stressed upon the Taliban to try to bring all of their groups on one platform to ensure consensus on the formula decided by the government and the Taliban
Hassan urged the Prime Minister and the Interior Minister to speed up the process of dialogue as unnecessary delay could create complications.
Talking to different delegations at JI centre ‘Mansoora’ on Sunday, he said that attempts to create uncertain situation during the talks were unfortunate.
He also urged the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to release Prof. Muhammad Ajmal and others in their custody in response to the government’s announcement of releasing 13 of TTP men.
JI chief also urged the government to go a step forward and immediately release the non-combatants, as the detention of aged, women and children could have its repercussions.
He said that so far, there had been no such demand from the Taliban that could show that they did not accept the country’s constitution or were not serious in talks.
Meanwhile JI Secretary General, Liaquat Baloch has said that Jamaat-e-Islami will stage a massive protest in the Punjab capital on against the government policies resulting in price spiral, lawlessness and unemployment in the Punjab capital on April 27.
