Pak Lawmaker Sees No Justification of US Presence in Region

Speaking to IRNA, Senator Prof. Muhammad Ibrahim Khan of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) endorsed the remark by of Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on the US presence in the region.

Salehi had said that there will remain no excuse for foreigners to send troops to the region to fight terrorism if according to Americans' claim Osama bin Laden has actually got killed.

'I fully support the remarks of Iran’s foreign minister,' Ibrahim Khan added.

Salehi also said, “Our initial stand was, and still is that the Americans should not have dispatched military forces to the region on that pretext.”

He further reiterated, “Our stance was proved to be quite justifiable in the years that followed, because the problem posed by Bin Laden and his terror organization, was not solved through a military invasion, and even eventually, it was a competent commando group that killed him, not military troops.'

In a televised speech on Sunday, US President Barack Obama announced that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had been killed in a US operation in Pakistan.

Senator Ibrahim Khan was of the view that according to Americans they have achieved their objective so they must immediately withdraw their forces from the region, especially Afghanistan.

'It would also be in the interest of US to leave the region because their economy cannot bear the burden of war against terror,' he believed.

He said that Amir Jamaat-e-Islami Munawar Hasan has clearly stated in a press conference that if America has achieved its target and killed its enemy number one, the US has no justification to stay here any more.

The politician said, 'We hope Osama bin Laden's death will put an end to war, bloodshed and killing of innocent people in the region.'

Ibrahim Khan, however, expressed doubt that the US would withdraw from the region.

He added that US and its allies should recognize their failed policies of the past that have disturbed the peace of the whole world.

The lawmaker advised Muslim countries to unite against enemies of Islam and do not become tools in the hands of colonial powers. 'Muslims must come forward to safeguard their interests,' he stressed.

The politician went on to say that colonial powers had attacked Afghanistan and Iraq only to take control of the recourses of Muslim countries.
