JI won’t support Fazl

LAHORE: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has failed to enlist the support of the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) for his upcoming Azadi March. The JUI-F chief telephoned JI leader Liaquat Baloch to discuss the anti-government march and seek the latter’s support for the purpose.
Speaking to media, Mr. Baloch said every political party has its own agenda.
The JI has already been engaged in a protest campaign against Indian repression against Kashmiris in India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he added.
He said the JUI-F has announced the Azadi March which is being backed by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
The JI leader cleared that the MuttahidaMajlis-e-Amal (MMA), an alliance of religious political parties, which was revived ahead of last year’s general elections, is not part of the march.
Earlier, on Oct 13, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister ShaukatYousafzai warned JamiatUlema-i-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chiefMaulanaFazlurRehman against challenging the writ of the state saying any illegal act would prompt legal action.
Speaking at a press conference here, he said the people rejected MaulanaFazl in last year’s general elections, adding he is hell-bent on launching a baseless campaign against the government.
The minister questioned if toppling of the government would lead to the JUI-F chief becoming the country’s chief executive. The minister questioned if toppling of the government would lead to the JUI-F chief becoming the country’s chief executive.
“Will Maulana’s march end unemployment and inflation,” he further asked.
