imageLAHORE: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, and JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, have strongly condemned the unprovoked firing by India at Shakargarh border during the Flag meeting, resulting in the martyrdom of two rangers' personnel.

In a statement here Wednesday, JI leaders said that such offensive steps clearly reflected arrogance of Indian leadership and were bound to damage the process of confidence building as India was bent upon plunging the region into another war.

The JI leaders stressed upon the Indian rulers to respect international laws. They also urged the UN to take notice of the repeated border violations by India. However, they declared that the Pakistani nation would stand like a rock for the defense of the country.

They called upon the government to lodge strong protest over the incident and demand an apology from New Delhi on the incident. They also expressed sympathies with the families of Naik Riaz Shakir and Lance Naik Safdar martyred in the firing.

Meanwhile, the JI leaders also expressed deep sense of sorrow over the traffic accidents at Islamabad and Muzaffar Abad causing deaths and injuries to several passengers.
