The head of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Hafiz Naeemur Rehman, criticised the decision to launch Operation Azm-e-Istehkam, saying it was made without consulting Parliament.

"Operation Azm-e-Istehkam was decided without any consideration for the Parliament," said Rehman. "Pakistan needs political stability, not military operations."

Rehman expressed concerns that no national, political, or democratic leadership was consulted about the operation. "Without national consensus, the operation will not achieve its objectives," he stated.

He agreed on the need for defined actions instead of military operations. "The people of Pakistan, especially in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, cannot bear the burden of military operations," he added.

Rehman said his party seeks peace, the eradication of terrorism, and an end to all forms of religious, political, and social extremism in the country.

"Peace, economic, and political stability can only come through a government formed by the people's mandate," concluded Rehman.
