KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami on Sunday launched Khushhal Pakistan Fund in the metropolis. The campaign was formally launched by JI deputy chief Asadullah Bhutto at JI headquarters. Bhutto said the JI believed that politics meant to serve, whereas for other parties politics is corruption, selfishness and following their own interests. Quoting the examples of Abdul Sattar Afghani and Nematullah Khan, he said that Afghani served the city in the capacity of mayor for a period spanning on seven long years but he could not buy his own residence even, set aside building assets and balances. Similarly, Nematullah Khan was elected as the city nazim and by the end of his tenure he had become an icon of honesty. JI chief Sirajul Haq had served Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as the finance minister but even his opponents never charged him of corruption. Karachi JI chief Naeem Rehman urged people to donate generously in the campaign to ensure a bright future for the country. He said, “The JI is the only party in the country which follows democracy in letter and spirit. Even the supreme judicial forums of the country had declared that only Siraj-ul-Haq would be spared if Article 62 and 63 is implemented in its true spirit.” He said that the campaign has been launched and citizens had so far contributed Rs 8 million in the fund. “Camps would be set up in regard with the campaign.” He appealed to the people to donate generously in the fundraiser to ensure a bright future for their next generations as well as Pakistan.
