New Delhi: In a bid to highlight the perils of capitalist imperialism and related politics in the country, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind will launch a 10-day nation-wide campaign starting here tomorrow.

The campaign entitled "Save the country from Slavery and Poverty" will try to present alternatives from Islamic perspective on the topic.

"The Jamaat is of the view that the current politics of the central and state governments in the country have led to a crisis situation of neo-slavery which has adversely affected the day-to-day life of common people," Mujtaba Farooq, Secretary of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, told reporters here today.

"India has been moving away from its basic values of justice, freedom, equality and non-aligned foreign policy. The impact of post-globalisation neo-liberal capitalist era has severely affected the 'aam aadmi' (common man) of the country, leading to his exploitation."

The Jamaat, through this campaign, intend to present the Islamic guidance as the alternative to the imperialist model of economy and social order, said Syed Jalaluddin Umari, President of the organisation.

The campaign, to be conducted at all state capitals and district headquarters, will be concluded in Bangalore on December 20.
