Hafiz Naeem Rahman Raises Concerns Over Extremist Tactics to Suppress Voter Turnout

Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi, Hafiz Naeem Rahman, has voiced his apprehensions, stating that a conspiracy is underway to keep the public away from participating in the elections through extremist politics. While emphasizing the necessity of armed security forces, he highlighted challenges arising from their presence inside polling booths.

During a press conference in Karachi, Hafiz Naeem Rahman expressed regret over the loss of human lives in the central district due to clashes between rival factions. He alleged that the competing parties want to discourage the public from casting votes, urging people to defeat these parties by actively participating in the electoral process.

Addressing the security concerns surrounding the elections, Rahman suggested that the deployment of the military, ISI, and Rangers should strategically focus on key locations rather than having a direct presence inside polling booths, which he argued leads to more complications.

Hafiz Naeem Rahman claimed that Jamaat-e-Islami is gaining ground in the elections, and attempts to obstruct their path are not acts of patriotism but tantamount to being enemies of the nation.

Speaking at the ‘Change Orangi, Become Worthy’ ceremony in Orangi Town, he stressed the urgency of addressing issues before the deadline, proposing a delay in the announcement of the Inter result to take corrective actions; otherwise, they would organize a march.

The Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi lamented the failure of students in intermediate exams in Karachi, alleging educational discrimination against the city’s students. He claimed that those who sought mandates from Karachi exploited the populace, and he urged the people to empower Jamaat-e-Islami for the sake of the citizens. Additionally, he pledged to establish a government-level IT university for the welfare of the people.
