Pakistan’s Jamaat-e-Islami chief announces reward for PM Modi’s arrest


Pakistan’s Jamaat-e-Islami chief, Sirajul Haq on Monday kicked up a controversy by announcing Rs 1 billion reward over the arrest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Addressing a gathering in Rawla Kot, JI chief said those talking about starting peace process with India a were ‘traitors’ adding that “if they like India, they may go to Delhi.”

He added, “Either our leaders our blind, deaf and dumb or are in collusion with India. We vow allegiance to the blood of Kashmiri martyrs and want to tell the rulers that they must get rid of confusion over Kashmir and take a firm stance on the issue.”

Haq said that “Modi’s agents” would never be able to arrest the “Mujahid” Syed Salahuddin.

Haq had replaced Munawar Hassan as new chief of Pakistani Jamaat-e-Islami in 2014.
