PESHAWAR: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Chief Sirajul Haq on Wednesday condemned the recent wave of terrorism in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and declared that his party workers would continue holding protests in the province as well as in the federal capital until the restoration of lasting peace.

Addressing a well-attended rally titled “Peace March”, he said the blast at the Police Lines in Peshawar was one of the deadliest terror attacks the province had ever seen. He said the federal and provincial governments had failed to protect the KP people.

More than a week has passed since the suicide bombing took place, but the perpetrators of the incident could not be identified, he lamented. “The people are getting killed, but the federal and provincial governments are acting as silent spectators as no action has been taken to establish peace in the province,” he maintained.

Thousands of people attended the march that started from Nistarabad Chowk and reached the Ashraf Road after passing through different routes, where a public gathering was held. JI acting provincial chief Abdul Wasi, deputy chief Inayatullah Khan, central deputy general secretary Mohammad Asghar, district president Bahrullah Khan and others addressed the gathering.

Sirajul Haq said conspiracies were being hatched to divide the nation on the basis of sects and language and push the country towards a civil war. He said the imperialist forces had launched their old game to disintegrate the country. The US and India wanted to continue war and unrest in Kabul and Islamabad, he added.
