LAKKI MARWAT: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan and his "Jewish lobby" want to destabilise Pakistan by creating political unrest, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Sunday.

"The JUI-F is not supporting the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) ousted prime minister; we are standing with democracy and the system," the veteran politician said while addressing the executive body of his party in Lakki Marwat.

He said the PTI-led government [in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa] was planning to bring an ad hoc system in the education department."

"The JUI-F vehemently opposes this ad hoc system and asks the teachers' community to stand firm for the future generations," he added.

He went on to say that the PTI led provincial government, by design, wanted to snatch job security from teachers in the province. "Through the registration of Imams, they want seminaries under their control and implement the West's plan," he maintained.

Religious parties may run for next polls on single platform: JUI-F leader

The provincial government is considering a proposal to appoint educated pesh imams in mosques across the province and pay them a monthly stipend.

According to the JUI-F chief, 9/11 was a conspiracy against the Muslim world and Afghanistan, and the US has fulfilled its plan through former dictator Pervez Musharraf.

Musharraf, he said, succumbed to US pressure.

We stand with Pakistani Army to protect our homeland," Fazl remarked.

The JUI-F chief asked the central government to play its role in stopping the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
