Pakistan: JI protest against lawlessness, narcotics in Nowshera

Nowshera: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) recently launched a sit-in demonstration in Pakistan's  Nowshera region against  lawlessness, crimes and narcotics in the district, media reports said.

People from all walks of life, including doctors, lawyers, students, teachers, social workers, traders and activists of various political parties, are participating in the protest sit-in to press the government for acceptance of their demands, reports The News International.

The participants assured all out support to the JI to put a halt to the rising incidents of crimes, drug trade, extortion for ransom and others, the newspaper reported.

Addressing the protest sit-in, JI district chief Inayatur Rahman, was quoted as saying by the newspaper that the law enforcing agencies, police and the state had miserably failed to end hunger, poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, terrorism, violence and drug smuggling in the district.

The JI activist said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf provincial chief Pervez Khattak remained chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for five years and then defence minister for four years but the people in the district were still faced with hunger, poverty and a host of other problems.

He said that every month a woman along with her children commit suicide by jumping into Kabul River due to abject poverty, price-hike and joblessness., which they claimed were the gifts of PTI government.
