Conspiracies underway to deprive Pakistan of its nuclear assets: Munawar.

------ JI ready to cooperate with Govt for coming out of US influence ISLAMABAD: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan (JI) Syed Munawar Hassan has said that conspiracies at international level are being hatched against Pakistans nuclear assets and its Islamic identity. Talking to editors of newspapers and columnists here at Sunday, Munawar Hassan said his party had launched Go America Go campaign with aims to bring the country out of the US subservience and dictations. He said that there was still a considerable strength of people in the military as well as civil bureaucracy who did not want the US hold in the countrys affairs. He said that state actors have failed to deliver in the country, which forced non-state actors to come forward and strengthen themselves, whereas agencies were held responsible for it. Munawar Hassan blamed that some powers were still patronizing Taliban, whereas people of specific sect, Deobandi school of though, are in the grip of severe internal fragmentation. Criticizing JUI-F, Munawar Hassan said JUI-F adopted an easy path to criticize the government while remaining in the government. The decision of Jamaat-e-Islami to boycott the elections proved correct now, he maintained. He said giving slot of the Chairman National Assemblys Kashmir committee to the chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) head Maulana Fazlur Rehman by the government is a move to dump Kashmir dispute because JUI-F had termed Kashmir Jihad as invalid and haraam. Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami said Sufi Muhammad is not Taliban, there is a lot of difference between the Sufi Muhammad and Talibans concept of Islam. We also want Islam, but there is also a lot of difference between our concept of Shariat and that of the Taliban, he clarified. He said military operation was not a final solution to any issue, and added that even army was also not convinced about the success of the ongoing military operation in Swat. The Jamaat-e-Islami chief said a delegation of his party visited China and reached on the opinion that China also wishes to strengthen its ties with the Muslim world. To another questions, Munawar Hassan said permission should not be allowed in Pakistan for formation of armed groups. People of Shiite and Sunni schools of though have nothing to do with the recent attacks against each other, however, some elements were patronizing the bloodshed in the country, he asserted. To another question, Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer said his party is ready to extend its all out support to the government against the United States and coming out of the US influence.
