ISLAMABAD: Naib Ameer of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Senator Professor Khurshid Ahmad has expressed his serious concern over aggressive US lobbying in Pakistan to get a fresh lease of life for its disastrous and failed policies of terrorizing people and the country in the name of war against terror.
The visit of US Deputy Secretary of State and Assistant Secretary of State, according to Prof. Khurshid Ahmad, has been a part of this game which Bush and Musharraf have actually lost, Prof Khurshid said in a statement. Prof Khurshid Ahmad expressed his satisfaction on the independent position taken by Mian Nawaz Sharif that the future policy would be formulated by the parliament and not under the dictates of Washington.
The country has suffered because of Pervez Musharraf’s surrender to commands of Washington. He also expressed his expectation that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani would also adopt an independent and courageous policy in keeping with the wishes of people of Pakistan.
He, however, expressed his regrets that PPP delegation lead by its Chairperman Bilal Bhutto Zardari and Co-chairperson
Asif Ali Zardari went to the US Embassy to meet these officials. “This was against the PML (N0’s delegation, which keeping in view the dignity of the people of Pakistan welcomed the delegation at Punjab House.“Political leadership should be sensitive not only to the vital interests and objectives of the Islam and Pakistan but also the dignity and self respect of the Pakistani nation”, he concluded.-SANA
