Country’s politics, parliament under foreign pressure: Fazl

April 30, 2018

MARDAN: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Sunday the country’s politics and parliament were under international pressure.

He said the United Nations had failed to stop the killing of innocent people in the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK), Syria, Libya, Palestine, Iraq and other Muslim countries. He was addressing the Mohib Baba Jee Conference at the Railway Ground in Mardan.

Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Senator Sirajul Haq and Federal Minister Akram Khan Durrani also addressed the conference while Shah Owais Noorani and Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) leaders and madrassa students were present in a large number.

The Maulana came down hard on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan and accused him of furthering the agenda of the Jewish lobby. Addressing the conference, Sirajul Haq criticised the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and said that NAB did not take action against the big guns. "We don't need such type of accountability," he added.

The JUI-F chief said that an Islamic revolution was imminent in the country. He added that according to a survey conducted by an organisation in the West, 85 percent youth in Pakistan wanted the Islamic rule in the country.

The Maulana said that the MMA would win the upcoming election by a huge margin and will change the governance system. The event was termed a show of power by the MMA in the district after its restoration. The religious party's activists chanted slogans throughout the day and marched on the main road to welcome the arrival of party leaders.

Big banners and posters of Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Sirajul Haq and other central and provincial leaders of MMA were displayed on almost all the main roads and venue for the meeting. However, the participation of JUI-F activists was more than other allied parties in the conference. Local party leaders had told people the event would be held at 2:00pm. However, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Sirajul Haq and other leaders reached the venue of the conference at 8:30pm. The local administration also blocked Mardan-Nowshera Road for traffic at Bacha Khan Chowk all the day, due to which the masses faced a lot of problems.
