Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday said the joint opposition will not opt for unconstitutional means to dislodge the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Speaking to the media, Fazl, who is the chief of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) as well, said the opposition will not let "anyone bury the system".

"The initial contact [with political parties] to oust the government has borne good results and soon the votes [for a no-confidence motion] will be complete," he added.

Fazl said the modalities to bring a no-confidence vote against the government will be finalised in an upcoming meeting of the opposition parties. "We will not bury the system," he added.

In a comment about a ban on headscarves in the Indian state of Karnataka, Fazl said the JUI-F will mark a 'Hijab Day' next Friday to express solidarity with the Indian Muslims.

On Friday, during a press conference, the JUI-F chief said that the participants of the PDM meeting unanimously decided to bring a no-confidence motion against the "incompetent" government, adding that the allies of the ruling party will also be contacted in this connection.
