Talking to journalists, the Jamaat-e-Islami leader said that martial law should not be imposed in any circumstances as it had also inflicted harm in the past. He said it was time to show responsibility and asked the federal government to show magnanimity as people can make demands from the government.
He stressed that political leadership and workers must find out a solution to the present crisis. He said that people were asking what would happen to Pakistan in the given situation and stressed that everyone should think about the motherland and democracy instead of advancing personal interests.
Siraj assured the people that they would not allow the country to return to darkness and said he was seeing light ahead. He thanked Khursheed Shah for his guidance. On the occasion, the opposition leader said that there would be no compromise on democracy and urged the political parties to find a solution to the crisis.
