Majlis-i-Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM) leader Allama Nasir Abbas on Tuesday hinted that his party may join the proposed anti-government movement to be launched by the opposition political parties after Ramazan.
“We deplore the government for killing people at will like it did in Model Town Lahore a few years ago, supporting corruption and money laundering and not caring for the lives of the citizens,” said the MWM secretary general.
He was speaking to the media along with Awami Muslim League Chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed at the MWM’s hunger strike camp outside the National Press Club.
Allama Abbas has been on a hunger strike for the last 12 days, taking only water and medicines for diabetes and blood pressure.
“We may be part of any movement that would be formed after Ramazan,” he said.
He said Pakistan should be a country that Quaid-i-Azam had visualized, not an extremist state that it has become now. He blamed the PML-N government for diverting the directions of the operation Zarb-i-Azb and the National Action Plan (NAP).
“We all had hoped that there would be a change after NAP was launched but the whole system is now backed to the square one and for this the major culprit is the government,” he said.
Allama Abbas added: “I am not here against the killing of Shias only but look around and see what happened in Yuhanabad. The Christians, Sikhs, Hindus and even Barelvis, the largest segment of society, are being killed.”
