ISLAMABAD: Maulana Fazlur Rehman has supported Saudi Arabia to acquire nuclear technology and become an atomic power to counter aggression from the West.
Fazl expressed these views while addressing Difa-e-Khadim-e-Haramain Sharifain conference organised on Monday.
“Muslims want to see Saudi Arabia become an atomic power in the future to counter western propaganda against Islam, particularly against the kingdom,” the JUI-F chief said.
He said the protection of Haramain was the collective responsibility of the Ummah, and all Muslim countries should unite to counter Western aggression.
Maulana Samilul Haq said an attack on Haramain should be considered as an attack on our faith and “we should expose western propaganda”. He urged Muslim leaders to unite against the West’s nefarious design.
