MULTAN: Chairman Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman criticised Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) new entrants on Sunday calling them power hungry nomads.
Addressing the media in Madarsah Jamia Qasim ul Uloom the JUI-F leader said that only power hungry nomads were joining the PTI. He criticized the group of industrialists, politicians and people joining PTI, adding that they will destroy Pakistan because they had no sense of political stability, survival and sovereignty of Pakistan.
“They are all just following power and trying to save the future of their political career,” he said.
Rehman further said that people were aware of the nature of nomads who keep moving for their survival and betterment, so is the case of the politicians and industrialists joining PTI who will fail eventually.
Speaking on Memogate, the JUI-Chief said that the memo was a reality and that the issues raised in the memo were important and should not be neglected. He said the case should be investigated on merit in the Parliament.
He said, “I will soon suggest a comprehensive and valid formula to President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani to unite all pure political parties of Pakistan.”
Rehman also criticised the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, saying that they have been lying as they have all proofs of agreements between Pakistan with United States and India during the Musharraf regime.
He said no decisions would be made under pressure from the judiciary, army and establishment and if circumstances in the country worsened, the government can hold elections before their tenure ends so as to show their support for the transparent and democratic electoral system.
Rehman has been visiting different religious madarsahs in southern Punjab to unite and gather people for the gathering organized by JUI-F on Monday in the Dera Ghazi hockey ground, which he will be leading. The JUI-F leader will be addressing a gathering there after 10 years.
