PESHAWAR: An All Parties Conference called by Jamiat Ulema Islam Fazl (JUI-F) has supported the earlier decision that the JUIF Ameer Mullana Fazlur Rehamn will lead the Azadi march and in case of his arrest, ANP leader Asfandyar Wali Khan will be the leader.
Following the meeting, JUI-F K-P President Mullana Attaur Rehman strongly condemned the government for the media blackout of JUI-F leader Fazlur Rehman.
Atta said now the only option left is the resignation of the prime minister and only then political turmoil could end.
He also demanded of the government institutions to stop providing cover to the puppet government in the centre and the province.
The JUI-F warned the Chief Minister Mahmood Khan against using foul language and threatening the APC leadership, which was against the traditions of the land and the Pukhtunwali.
“It should be clear that Azadi March will take place at any cost in Islamabad, on 27th of this month we will show our solidarity with our Kashmiri brother and sisters under siege,” Atta said.
Regarding Ansarul Islam he said it was part of JUI-F and they were proud of it. Ansarul Islam volunteers guard the party leadership during political gathering, Atta said, trashing the government claims that it was a proscribed organisation.
