Lahore, Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has termed India s permission to Pakistanis to invest as a trap, and a plan to destabilize this country in every respect.
He has appealed to patriotic citizens and businessmen not to fall in this trap of Pakistan s enemy.
In a statement here on Thursday, he said that India was continuously trying to weaken this country under a plan. Its water aggression against the country was going on. India had built 62 dams over the Pakistani rivers and was denying this country its share of water. It wanted to convert Pakistan in to a desert and destroy its industry, agriculture and economy so that Pakistan becomes totally dependent and was forced import everything from India. This was part of New Delhi s scheme to emerge as regional policeman, and it enjoyed full US backing in this plan. The Pakistani rulers were fully assisting that country through their wrong policies.
He said that the ongoing energy crisis had been created to compel the capitalists shift their capital abroad. Almost 40 per cent of the country s industry had already shifted to Bangladesh and the rest could be tempted by the Indian offer.
Referring to the rulers wrong policies, Syed Munawar Hasan said that at first, the hands of the Pakistanis were tied by opening trade with India. Later, India was allowed a corridor to Afghanistan and now NATO and the US were given free hand to carry anything to Afghanistan through this country. With all these steps, the country s independence and sovereignty had been compromised. The enemy was violating our borders every day but neither the armed forces nor the civilian rulers were bothered.
JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, in his statement, said that India s move to allow investment was a conspiracy. He said initially, India had declared Pakistan its favorite for trade. Islamabad responded to this gesture. However, the trade between the two neighbors showed huge losses to this country and heavy profits for India.
Liaqat Baloch noted that the Pakistan s economy was primarily agrarian and was dependent on river water. Kashmir which was the life line of Pakistan was in India s hand while India had built dozens of dams over Pakistani rivers to ruin its agriculture. At the same time, he said, India was involved in terrorism in this country especially in Balochistan. Therefore, he said, the Pakistani capitalists should demonstrate their love for the country by turning down the Indian offer.
