Corruption-free Pakistan our aim: Fazl


July 11, 2018

DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Tuesday the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) would eliminate corruption from the country if voted to power.

Speaking at a gathering here, Maulana Fazl, who is also the head of MMA, the secular parties had been ruling the country for the last 70 years.

“The secular parties have always opposed implementation of Shariah in the country,” he said and added that religio-political parties under the banner of MMA would continue endeavours to implement Islamic laws in the country.

He said that a certain political party was spreading vulgarity and obscenity in the country.

“The MMA is facing a secular party which is creating hurdles to implementing Shariah and had arranged musical concert in D-Chowk in Islamabad in the name of protest for months,” Maulana Fazl said and added that the same secular party wanted to damage Islamic identity of the country.

He added that those who chanted slogans of change had introduced indecency in politics.

The MMA chief said people should keep in mind the glory of Islam while casting the votes, regardless of the internal differences.

He said religious parties had always defeated those who were against Islam in the past and the political rivals would face humiliating defeat in the upcoming general elections.

Maulana Fazl said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led provincial government had pushed the province into deep financial crisis by securing huge loans.

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa previous government did nothing for the welfare of the people and did not set up even a single university in the province.

“Those claiming to have built 300 dams did not even generate one megawatt electricity in the province,” he maintained.

He urged people to vote for the honest and devoted candidates to keep the country on the track to development and prosperity.

JUI-F leaders including Qari Safiullah, Maulana Ijaz Farooqi, Abdul Haleem Khan Qasuria, Maulana Kifayatullah and others were present on the occasion.
