JI faces strong criticism over Pakistan map row

SHEIKHUPURA: Jamat-e-Islamai (JI) on Friday came under fire for displaying a country map in its gathering wherein the Kashmir was not shown as the part of Pakistan, ARY News reported.

JI organized a program on Islamic Educational System in Shikhupura. JI chief Siraj-ul-Haq was the chief guest of the program.

But the organizers of the program faced strong criticism after the banner placed at the back of the stage had the wrong map of Pakistan on it, in which Kashmir was omitted from country’s map.

Participants described printing of India’s preferred map of Pakistan wasa weird thing as JI always played an active role in the struggle of freedom of Kashmiris.

It is pertinent to mention that Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan but both claim the whole of the region and have gone to war twice over its control since partition in 1947.

After being pointed out by ARY News, JI Seikhupura Chief Rana Tauhfa Dastagir accepted the mistake of placing wrong map of Pakistan and vowed to take organizers to task for the negligence.
