Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) chairperson Syeda Aasiya Andrabi today expressed dismay over the crackdown on Hafiz Muhammad Saeed-led Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and its social work organization Falah-e-Insaniyat (FeI) by the Pakistan government.
Castigating the government of Pakistan for imposing a blanket ban on the activities of the two organizations and freezing their accounts, Aasiya Andrabi, in a statement today, said, "The institutions run by them including Madaris have been shut down."
Aasiya said, "It is beyond comprehension that Hafiz Saeed sahib and his organizations are working against the interest of the Pakistan. I say it with complete authority that Professor Saeed and his workforce are more patriotic than any other Pakistani. He has sacrificed his whole life and wealth for the welfare of Mamlikat-e-Khudadad."
She reiterated that by doing so, the Pakistani state machinery is "hitting at their feet."
She said, "The people at the helm in Pakistan are trying to appease the international community in general and India in particular. The whole exercise is being carried out in the backdrop of the recently concluded International Human Rights Conference that was held in Islamabad."
"Since many countries participated in the conference, the Pakistani state establishment in a bid to appease them is carrying out such operations on Saeed and his organizations," she added.
Aasiya said that closing down the educational institutes and social welfare organizations of Prof Saeed would hit the people at ground.
"Falah-e-Insaniyat was doing commendable job by providing free education and monetarily assisting those below poverty. It had turned into a complete social organization.
She said, "Pakistan government has failed to run even their own institutes and will therefore fail to handle all the institutes that they have taken control of. The institutes that have been created out of the blood of common people and their donations cannot be handled by those who are destroying Pakistan for their personnel interests."
