QUETTA: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) leaders have said that the government has been working on the western agenda of trying to convert Pakistan into a secular state but the JUI-F would act as a wall of concrete against any such step.

Speaking at annual Dastar-e-Fazeelat function in Khuzdar here on Sunday, JUI-F provincial amir Senator Maulana Faiz, secretary general and opposition leader Malik Sikandar Advocate and MNA Maulana Syed Mehmood Shah noted that the provincial government had disappointed the people of Balochistan where development had come to a halt and attacks on minorities had proven the claims of the government on law and order wrong.

“Current reshuffle in central cabinet had unveiled false claims of PTI government where players were being returned to the pavilion. The captain is next to return to pavilion,” JUI-F leaders said.

They added that the current government would face severe reaction from JUI-F in its efforts to turn the country into a secular state.

JUI-F leader slams PTI

“The PTI government is busy in arresting opposition leaders through fake corruption cases. It should start accountability from home,” JUI-F leaders observed.

The speakers said that people in Balochistan were being killed under the nose of provincial government and the Jam government instead of focusing on law and order was busy in sidelining opposition members.

“Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) is in a shabby state while flood victims are waiting for government’s assistance. But they [government representatives] are busy in photo shoots rather than rehabilitation of flood-hit people,” JUI-F leaders alleged.
