Memo and Pakistan nuclear installations

Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that every Pakistani was shocked at the martyrdom of army personnel in the Nato attack and is rightly asking as to why boundaries and national sovereignty of Pakistan are being violated again and again.

He said that unless Pakistan decided to stand on its own feet and renounced the charity by foreigners, its sovereignty would continue to be jeopardised in the same manner. He said we would have to foil the conspiracies being hatched against the motherland and the Ulema and Mashaikh would have to play their key role in this regard.

The chief minister was addressing a meeting of Ittehad Bainul Muslimeen Committee held in connection with Muharramul Haram at the Chief MinisterĂ­s Secretariat here on Monday.

He said the entire Muslim world, including Pakistan, was passing through the most critical phase of its history and the motherland was facing an explosive situation and it was unfortunate that on the one hand, the nation was shocked at the Nato attack while on the other hand, its own persons were involved in hatching a conspiracy against the country in form of memo scandal which was aimed at nothing but to damage the interests of the country and to give the nuclear capability to foreigners. He said the leadership of the PML-N had filed a petition in the Supreme Court, believing that the court would certainly expose all unholy characters involved in that conspiracy.

Shahbaz said Ittehad Bainul Muslimeen Committee had always played a commendable role in the maintenance of sectarian harmony and law and order and sectarian hatred had considerably been decreased due to its efforts. He said that due to cooperation of the Ulema and administrative measures of the government, law and order situation in Punjab during the last Muharram remained exemplary and no untoward incident took place. He said the Punjab government had also constituted other committees at district, tehsil, village and union council level. He said the meeting had been held to seek invaluable proposals of Ulema, to benefit from their consultation and to review the measures taken by the government in connection with Muharram.

The CM said the sacrifice of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and the sanctity of Muharram demanded that Muslims should virtually pay homage to Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) by maintaining unity in their ranks. He urged the Ulema to play their role for promoting tolerance and brotherhood and maintaining peaceful atmosphere in the society and spread Islamic teachings like economic equality, justice, tolerance and just distribution of resources in their sermons.

Members of Ittehad Bainul Muslimeen Committee said that Ulema and Mashaikh would not hesitate from any sacrifice for safeguarding the country and foil the nefarious designs of such forces as were weakening the national security.

Senior Advisor Zulfiqar Khosa, Provincial Minister for Auqaf Haji Ehsaanuddin Qureshi, members assembly, chief secretary, inspector general of police, secretary Auqaf as well as commissioner and district coordination officer, Lahore and senior officers were present.
