MUJIB'S DEMANDS REASONABLE, SAYS DAULTANA

Statement by MIAN MUMTAZ MUHAMMAD KHAN DAULTANA,

 

Chief of the Council Muslim League on March 13, 1971 at Lahore

 

Mian Mumtaz Muhammad Khan Daultana, Chief of the Council Muslim League, observed here today that Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's demands were quite reasonable and should be accepted to end the present political crisis in Pakistan.

 

Speaking in support of the resolution adopted at the meeting of the leaders of minority parties in the National Assembly, he said the crisis that existed before March 3 was political and constitutional, but the present situation had thrown the very existence of Pakistan into jeopardy.

 

He maintained that if Mr. Z. A. Bhutto had adopted his present attitude earlier, the country would not have faced the present crisis.
