ISLAMABAD: Jamaat-e-Islami Amir Sirajul Haq has rejected the government’s decision to form five new boards of madrassas, calling it a conspiracy to divide the Ummah on sectarian lines.
“The government has taken this decision under pressure from the FATF and Western powers. This decision is tantamount to damaging the ideological foundation of the country.
Siraj-ul-Haq said that the decision to take the leadership of madrassas in the board would harm the future of millions of madrassa students. He said that Jamaat-e-Islami wants one board of madrassas and one syllabus. He said that the government should refrain from damaging Pakistan’s ideological base under the pressure of international organizations.
He said that the government should allocate funds for madrassas in the budget. He said that it seems that the claimants of a state like Madina are bent on harming the ideology of Pakistan after destroying their economy. He said that Jamaat-e-Islami would never leave the students of madrassas alone and would raise its voice for rights at every forum. He said that madrassas were the stronghold of Islam and Pakistan. He said that Jamaat-e-Islami was struggling to transform the country into an Islamic welfare state.
