LAHORE: The Jamaat-e-Islami has announced a movement against the new presidential regulation on the tribal areas for being in conflict with the constitution, Islamic laws and basic human rights.

JI deputy chief and former Senior Minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Sirajul Haq, while addressing a press conference at the Lahore Press Club on Monday said that the presidential regulation gave unlimited powers to the DCO and the political agent, enabling them to play with the lives of the tribal people, especially government officials.

Senior JI leader and ex MNA Sahibzada Haroonur Rashid, was also present at the press comference.

Haq said that the regulation was issued to advance a US agenda for splitting Pakistan into mini states but added that the JI would foil every such attempt by the PPP.

Terming the regulation a black spot on the face of democracy, he said the JI would also challenge the regulation before the Supreme Court.

He said under this black law, the injustices inflicted by drone attacks and military operations upon people could not be challenged in any law court or Jirga.

He further said that the decisions taken by the DCO and the political agent could not be challenged in any court or forum.
