DAMMAM: The visiting head of one of Pakistan’s prominent religious and political parties has blamed the United States’ stinging defeat in Afghanistan for the current chaos in his country.

“What we are witnessing today in Pakistan is a direct result of America’s defeat in Afghanistan at the hands of the brave Afghans,” said Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan chief Syed Munawar Hasan.

Speaking at well-attended programs organized by well-known Pakistani expatriates in the Eastern Province, he said: “America is not able to swallow this defeat and, therefore, it is out to wreak havoc in Pakistan. All these acts of violence that we are witnessing in our country are the work of American agents.”

The Jamaat chief was in Saudi Arabia on a 12-day visit and was a prominent invitee at the Muslim World League’s just concluded conference in Makkah on “Issues and Challenges of the Muslim World.”

Afghanistan, he said, has lived up to its historic reputation of being the graveyard of superpowers.
