Plan to revive MMA appears shattered

Express May 12, 2010

ISLAMABAD: A plan by Maulana Fazlur Rehman to revive a broken alliance of six religiopolitical parties appears to have been shattered before making any headway as one of the leading groups has refused to be part of any such settlement.

Officials of the Jamaati- Islami (JI) told The Express Tribune from Lahore on Tuesday they had conveyed to Fazl that they were not ready to make any formal association. Fazlur Rehman called for a meeting of the parties that were part of the Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal before it broke down ahead of general elections in 2008. According to a top leader the JI had assured Fazl support for implementing ‘Shariah’ in Pakistan but would never be part of any formal political alliance.

Sultan Ahmed | 13 years ago | Reply Large number of people have been killed by predator drone attacks. It is right to say they were innocent,absolutely innocent,helpless and poor,they lost their beloved sons and daughters. the question is that what they have committed crime, circumstance invite everyone's mind that what is the result of such attacks,reaction, reaction,reaction creates after every attack. For example, a person who lost all members of his family, at last put the arm up against the United States and its ally Pakistan. As for as international law is concerned,it does not permit to attack civilians ,women and children despite of it violation is being done children and women are dying every day but world silent is not understandable. At last religious parties saw this brutality now they decided to come to the agreed point.they wasted huge time should consider matter in time. Time is running out,they should try to convince the world that through this procedure adopted by the super power is not favorable,should change the policy which win the heart of the people living under their rule need mercy in their behave.
