MMA wants US and British goods banned
By Azizullah Khan
QUETTA: The Mutahidda Majlis-e-Amal, which has been highly critical of the government’s foreign policy, here on Sunday urged the provincial government to ban all American and British products in the province.
The call came at an alliance meeting on Sunday chaired by Maulvi Noor Muhammad, a Member of the National Assembly (MNA), and attended by party leaders. Abdul Sattar Chishti, information secretary of the Jamiat Ulama-e-Islam party, told Daily Times that the meeting condemned the United States and her allies.
He said it was also decided to communicate with other alliance leaders in the country. “We will start a campaign today (Monday) to convince traders not to deal in any American and British goods including beverages,” he added.
It was also revealed that the alliance planned to stage “a more stylish mass protest” following a failure two days ago to drum public support for its nationwide anti-United States protest.
Mr Muhammad also castigated the Pakistani rulers, urging the prime minister’s government to toe an anti-US line.
