Jamaat expresses concern at banking scams; calls for moral reform

Posted on 03 March 2018 by Admin_markaz

New Delhi, 03 Mar: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind expressed deep concern at the recent banking scams in the country like the PNB scam, Oriental Bank of Commerce scam etc. at their monthly press meet. Addressing the media the Secretary General of JIH, Muhammad Salim Engineer said: ‘’ The country has lost thousands of crores in the PNB scam.  Once again the prime accused fled the country and the government is trying to escape its responsibility by shifting the blame to the Central Bank and the bank auditors. Jamaat demands that a JPC be appointed to find out how a fraud of such magnitude and scale took place and what steps the government had taken to ensure its prevention. The resulting loss of capital due to these scams will ultimately have to be borne by the ordinary tax payer. Our international credit rating is also going to take a hit which will impact foreign investment and ultimately our GDP and growth rate. The government has failed to deliver on its promise of clean and corruption-free governance. Jamaat would also like to remind people that besides a fool proof system of checks and balances to prevent economic fraud and corruption, it is also important to inculcate ethics, morality and fear of accountability before God among the people’’.

Salim Engineer also expressed concern at the deteriorating law and order situation of the country, growing incidents of lawlessness, crime against women as well as the increase in number of extra-judicial killings or police encounters. The JIH Secretary General said that : ‘’The tendency to resort to extra-judicial killings via police encounters in the quest to reduce crime is a dangerous trend and Jamaat feels that it is very harmful for democracy and civil liberties.  Jamaat appeals to the people of the country to avoid taking law in their hands and eschew violence. Women should be respected and law enforcement must go by the law to handle crime and criminals. It is the job of politicians, social activists, religious organizations and all concerned citizens to rebuild the nation on the principles of peace and tolerance. Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is committed to this cause and invites others to partner it for the noble cause of rebuilding society”.
