Air strikes, dialogues can’t go together, says JI ameer
LAHORE: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Syed Munawar Hassan said it is not conducive to hold dialogue [with Taliban] amid air strikes and jet fighter bombing, ARY News reported on Friday.
Addressing a Friday congregation in Mansoora, Lahore, JI chief said prime minister should shun the pressure from US and India and prefer dialogue with Taliban another chance. He said military operation was aimed at spreading hatred between people and armed forces. He hoped that prime minister will find a wayout for dialogue as he did previously.
He said jet bombing could certainly terrorise people, but no objective could be attained through it. Munawar said large scale destruction will result in the wake of air strikes.
JI chief said dialogue will succeed once government detaches itself from US-sponsored war.
