Call to boycott American goods
LAHORE: Tanzeem Hablillah, a non-government organisation, has called for Muslims to boycott American products.
“Muslims should boycott American products because the US has desecrated the Holy Quran, ridiculed the Islamic way of life and made a woman into an imam,” said Dr Iftikhar Hussain Waris, patron-in-chief of Tanzeem Hablillah, at a meeting on Sunday.
Dr Waris said Americans were prejudiced against Islam. He urged Muslims to boycott American products as they were “minting money” from Pakistan and that money was being used against Muslims.
He said Tanzeem would give scholarships to needy students and announced two scholarships each in arts, engineering IT and medicine. He said Tanzeem would give 25 poor couples Rs 20,000 each on their marriage each year.
He said a dispensary would be established at Waris Shah Medical College where different specialists would sit on each day of the week and treat poor patients free of cost.
