LAHORE: Ameer, Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has said that the US-India collusion against Pakistan was a serious threat to its survival.
In a statement here on Wednesday, he said that US Secretary of State John Kerry’s statement suggesting India to play a central role in Afghanistan elections after US withdrawal, and call for at least 1.5 lakh Indian troops in the land locked country, was an open bid to disturb peace in the region and support to New Delhi in its designs against this country.
The JI Ameer said that Pakistan’s unscrupulous rulers had done irreparable loss to the country by joining the US war. This country had been the target of terrorism from the day the US troops arrived in the region.
He said unfortunately the present rulers of the country were also following in the footsteps of Pervez Musharraf and Zardari and seemed to be ready to accept India as big brother, whereas India had never missed any opportunity to harm this country.
Syed Munawar Hasan stressed upon the government to beware of the US designs, take a strong notice of John Kerry’s statement and make it clear to Washington that assigning any role to India in Afghanistan won’t bring peace to the region.
He said that Pakistan had suffered heavily because of the Afghan war. Its independence and sovereignty were mocked at and its image in the world community was shattered. Around 50,000 Pakistanis were killed in the US war and the country’s economy had been ruined. In spite of that, the Pakistani rulers could not gain Washington’s confidence. On the other hand, the US had always supported the conspiracies of India and Israel against this country, and now wanted India to replace it in Afghanistan after its departure. That was why it was proposing 1.5 lakh Indian troops in Afghanistan after its withdrawal.
The JI Ameer said that India had no common borders with Afghanistan, so why should it play any role in that country.
He said the Indian troops’ presence in Afghanistan would render the Pak Afghan border insecure and India’s intrigues against this country would further increase.
He said that Afghan President Hamid Karzai was also a party to the US plans against this country, that was why he was making agreements for Afghan troops’ training in India instead of Pakistan.
