Jamaat-e-Islami Chief Rejects Conspiracies to Secularize Pakistan

Saraj ul Haq, the leader of Jamaat-e-Islami, has strongly asserted that the efforts to secularize Pakistan will not succeed, emphasizing that the party will vigorously defend the Islamic principles enshrined in the constitution. In a recent statement, Saraj ul Haq stated that breaking the mirror of the ruling elite is not enough; what is needed is a clear and honest reflection of their faces and roles.

He expressed the view that the ruling aristocracy needs to cleanse their faces and roles instead of attempting to break the mirror. According to Saraj ul Haq, the agenda of former rulers is to eradicate Pakistan’s Islamic identity, and the parties supporting the elimination of Articles 62 and 63 of the constitution are aligned with this agenda.

Saraj ul Haq highlighted the insincerity in the promises made by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to abolish Articles 62 and 63, stating that the charter of PML-N and other former ruling parties still harbors intentions to secularize the country. However, he firmly asserted that such conspiracies to secularize Pakistan will not succeed due to the united cooperation of the nation.

He further stressed that the Jamaat-e-Islami is fully committed to defending the Islamic character of the constitution and will oppose any attempts to undermine the distinctive identity of Pakistan as an Islamic state. The leader of Jamaat-e-Islami rejected the notion that the former rulers’ alliances or promises could sway the nation towards secularism, reaffirming the importance of preserving the Islamic values enshrined in Pakistan’s constitution.

In summary, Saraj ul Haq’s statement underscores the Jamaat-e-Islami’s unwavering commitment to safeguarding Pakistan’s Islamic identity and resisting any attempts to introduce secular elements into the country’s constitutional framework. The party leader’s remarks highlight the importance of upholding the principles outlined in Articles 62 and 63 as essential components of Pakistan’s national identity.
