CHARSADDA: Jamaat-i-Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq on Monday said the government shouldn’t hold talks with India until Kashmir issue was resolved.

“Kashmiris are our brothers, who need our moral support to get right to self-determination,” he told a function organised by Al-Khidmat Foundation here.

The JI chief said India along with Israel was continuously hatching conspiracies to harm Pakistan but such intrigues would be thwarted by Pakistani people.

He said the Pakistan Army with the support of the entire nation defeated India in the 1965 war and that the time had come to teach India a lesson again.

Haq said Pakistan should strongly react to Indian aggression against its people.

About PTI chief Imran Khan’s demand for resignation of four Election Commission of Pakistan members, he said instead of seeking exit of the four members, there should be a call for the change of the entire electoral system. The JI leader demanded that the government take all political parties into confidence and initiate electoral reforms.

He appreciated the role of Al-Khidmat foundation in social welfare activities, especially during disasters.

He urged the people to come forward and participate in welfare activities.

Later, around 150 unemployed and poor people were given documents of rickshaws and loans.

ANP district president Arshad Abdullah, QWP district president Arshad Khan Umarzai, MPA Khalid Khan Mohmand and Charsadda tehsil nazim Khalil Bashir Umarzai were also present on the occasion.

Meanwhile, a man on Monday killed his sister-in-law and her alleged paramour in Gulabad area here.

The police said they had registered a case and started investigation.
