Speakers in the All Pakistan Ahle Hadith Conference on Thursday reiterated that terrorism could not be eliminated without first establishing justice in the world, for which Washington have to change its Muslim-specific policies including unprovoked aggression against Muslim countries.

They were addressing the opening session of the 2-day All Pakistan Ahle Hadith Conference at Minar-e-Pakistan.

The conference organised by Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith is being participated by thousands of workers and supporters of the party including several prominent Muslim scholars from other countries including Saudi Arabia, India, Bangladesh and UAE.

Security has been beefed up around the venue with hundreds of policemen guarding the area while the participants were searched and made to pass through metal detectors.

A large kitchen was set up for providing food for the large number of participants, while dozens of stalls of eatables and other items were set up by the workers.

The conference is being participated by hundreds of women and children too. The caravans of participants kept arriving from all parts of the country till late in the night at the conference.

Delivering the keynote address, Jamiat Ahle Hadith President Senator Prof Sajid Mir warned that world peace would remain an elusive dream and terrorism could never be eliminated unless justice was established in the world by the developed countries specially America.

He said US attacks in tribal areas must come to an immediate halt otherwise people of Pakistan could take direct action for national security and sovereignty. He said it was time the people should hold accountable the rulers who failed to respect and implement their mandate and the demands of the Parliament.

He said the Muslim world expected from the new US president to change the Bush era policies in order to restore world peace and confidence of the Muslim world on Washington.

He warned that if Bush’s policies were not changed than only Washington should be held responsible for terrorism and global unrest.

Urging the Muslim world to forge immediate unity in its ranks by rising above petty interests, Sajid Mir expressed sorrow that secular and anti-Muslim forces were cashing in on their disunity.

He offered the services of his party for mediation among the Muslims for establishing a grand unity.

On the occasion, Jamiat Ahle Hadith Secretary General Hafiz Abdul Karim said agents of colonists and secular forces had obliterated the ideological and cultural identity of the country.

He referred to the deliberate and organised efforts at the state level to replace honourable Muslim values in society with the vulgar Western culture in the name of ‘enlightened moderation’.

He said the present government was blatantly violating the public mandate of February 18 elections by keeping up with the policies of Gen (Retd) Musharraf. He said while US missile attacks had made a mockery of the Parliament and its resolution for protecting national security and sovereignty, people were pushed into a mire of price-hike and lawlessness, but the rulers were enjoying at the expense of poor public as a huge army of ministers was busy plundering national wealth in the name of perks and privileges.

Above all, he said, the rulers had the guts to seek more loans on shameful conditions from IMF to make the future generations’ slaves and beggar before the IMF and the world’s colonists.

He warned that the country could never progress without first establishing rule of law and justice.

In unanimous resolutions passed during the two sessions held on Thursday, the conference demanded immediate trial of Gen (Retd) Musharraf and Shaukat Aziz for crimes such as the Jamia Hafsa massacre, massive economic irregularities and shady deals of privatisation of national assets, restoration of judiciary as on Nov 2, 2007, honourable release of nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan, recovery of all missing persons handed over to FBI and CIA, halt of military operation in tribal areas and holding of talks with tribal elders and warring groups, countering US missile attacks in pursuance of the Parliament’s resolution and conditioning logistic support to Nato with respect for Pakistan’s sovereignty, removal of Qadiyanis from key government offices and restoration of chapters in syllabi removed in Musharraf era under Qadiyanis pressure, rejecting IMF loans and instead taking help from friendly Muslim countries, taking measures at the state level to arrest vulgarity and obscenity in media and public levels, rolling back friendship efforts with India without first making Delhi to solve Kashmir issue, speeding up efforts for just solution of the Palestine issue and dumping the suggestions of acknowledging Israel, ensuring due rights to Balochistan and empowering parliamentary representatives to respect provincial autonomy, early construction of dams to solve energy crisis and changing the foreign policy in the light of proofs of Indian and Afghan involvement in subversive activities in Pakistan.
