They demanded that these patriotic Pakistanis should be granted citizenships without further delay to enable them to live with respect.JI secretary general called for raising a strong vice against the inhuman treatment being meted out to the pro-Pakistan people in clear violation of the tripartite agreement between Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. He said that despite the drama of elections in Bangladesh three times, Bangladesh was under the grip of dictatorship and the BD leader had thrown their country into the lap of India.Dr Farid Ahmed Piracha said that pro-Pakistan people in Bangladesh were being executed and jailed but the rulers in Islamabad were silent. JI Chief for Central Punjab Amirul Azeem said that the emergence of Bangladesh was the result of forgetting the Islam’s message of love and fraternity and strengthening of the feelings of parochialism.He said that the rulers in Islamabad were decorating the ministers with medals despite their poor performance. He said that in fact the Pakistan lovers from Bangladesh who had faced untold hardships in their love for the country deserved these medals. Published in Daily Times, December 17th2018.
