JI has added eradication of Polio extensively in its manifesto, he informed.

He suggested that in order to reduce resistance against polio campaigns in KP, World Health Organization-WHO and United National Children’s Fund-UNICEF should condemn US drone attacks and issue statements in media against illegal strikes.

 
 

Hafiz Sajjid Anwar, Deputy Secretary JI, said that the mosques should be used for organizing, educating and administration of Polio Campaigns. He further said that the Madrassas can play a very effective role in the areas of low literacy rate for raising awareness and demand for vaccination against polio. Ittehad Madrasa Al Dunyia may be approached for spreading the anti polio messages.
