Is this Tehreek political?
Yes, it is a political movement; but not a political party. The challenge of bringing people to do justice is so huge that it’s beyond the capacity of one party. We’d resist the temptation of forming a party. We’ll appeal to all God-fearing elements in all political and religious parties that they spread the message within their parties and communities so peace and prosperity return to the country.
Is this Tehreek religious?
Yes. This is a Tehreek started by Muslims and aimed at majority Muslim population in this country. Muslims, despite having the knowledge, are the major and deliberate violator of Allah’s limits. However, minorities in Pakistan have a constructive role to play – to bring awareness of justice to their communities – Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Parsi, will be included in the TA umbrella.
Does this Tehreek have a particular religious/sectarian slant?
No. The message is aimed at all sects of Muslims – Sunni, Shia. Similarly, all reliogio-political parties like Jamaat-e-Islami, Tanzeem-e-Islami, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan and Tableeghi Jamaat will be encouraged to spread this message in their members.
How would be the nature of our appeal?
We would appeal to masses at logical, rational level, rather than just appealing to their emotions. If the message needs to be long-standing it needs to be a cognitive appeal.
Will we limit ourselves to influencing people?
Initially, yes. We will like to persuade people to do justice. Side by side, we’ll work with institutions in the country to uphold justice and rule of law.
Our ultimate goal will be that a rule of law is enforced and the people feel protected.
