Pakistan Jamaat-e-Islami Leader: Pakistani People Will Not Accept Unconstitutional Solutions
Pakistan Jamaat-e-Islami Leader: Pakistani People Will Not Accept Unconstitutional Solutions
The Islamic group Jamaat-e-Islami in Pakistan fears heinous acts by 'hidden hands' plotting for own private interests and agendas.

 As escalation of the political crisis in Pakistan between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the opposition led by Imran Khan continues, Pakistan has been dragged into a dangerous situation of complete paralysis for the past 15 days.

In an exclusive statement to IkhwanWeb, about the Jamaat-e-Islami's position with regard to this crisis, Abdul-Ghaffar Aziz, leader of the Islamic group, said: "The people of Pakistan will not accept any solution outside the framework of the Constitution. Furthermore, recriminations between the two parties, without clear evidence, are totally unacceptable; and no-one should be punished unless and until proven guilty.

"We continue our mediation efforts, with the participation of various political parties, in an attempt to take this homeland out of the current political crisis. The Jamaat-e-Islami's efforts earned the respect of all classes of the Pakistani people. We will not give up, notwithstanding the heinous plots."

Aziz said the real solution for the crisis is that "All state institutions must respect their constitutional boundaries and powers.

We demand the formation of a judicial commission to investigate allegations of fraud.

"There are hidden hands that want to create chaos and discord to achieve their goals and implement malicious plots."

Aziz reiterated that the Jamaat-e-Islami is not a party in the latest wave of demonstrations, and that it has been endeavoring, from the very first day, to put out the fire and keep demonstrations peaceful.

"Peaceful popular protest is a natural right guaranteed by the Constitution. On the other hand, use of violence by either camp, will be to everyone's detriment.

"The army must not become a party in the ongoing dispute. The role of the military is to protect the state and defend its borders, not to interfere in the political scene. Political leaders must resolve the dispute among themselves, away from the army."
