Constitutional package a deception: Munawar

ISLAMABAD: Jamaat-e-Islami Central Secretary General Syed Munawar Hassan has said that Constitutional package is nothing more than a deception. After opening ceremony of JI media Center addressing a press conference here on Sunday he said that the constitutional package is based on minus-one formula which is not acceptable to the lawyers, the civil society and the political parties. He said that minus-one will be acceptable only if it means President Musharraf.

The JI leader said that APC had decided in London that the constitution existed before October 12, 1999 will be restored, all the judges will be reinstated as well as judiciary will be made independent and no one will compromise with MQM as it was a fascist party. But today decisions of the APC were being ignored, he added.

He said that Zardari’s statement against the President was just to deceive people as he was forwarding policy of Musharraf. Munwar Hassan said that the government had failed as it was blaming that presidency has turned into a center of conspiracies adding that no conspiracy was hatched against the government. He blamed that the PML-N leader Tariq Khan was killed by MQM.
