DERA GHAZI KHAN: 

Warning the army against ‘intervening’ in political affairs, the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief said on Monday that all ‘power hands’ showing the way to the ballot, will, in turn,  be shown their way back to the barracks.

Addressing a rally in Dera Ghazi Khan, Fazlur Rehman said that threats, in the name of the Haqqani network, to the government and the attack on the Salala check posts are outcomes of a ‘one man show’ and secret pacts of the past.

These pacts, he added, have cost the country’s economy $80 billion and killed 35,000 people, and urged that the perpetrators should be held accountable.

Dismissing PTI’s popularity

Regarding the rising popularity of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the JUI-F chief said that the party is “just a paper, which will disappear soon”.

“All those with the illusion of power are joining PTI. They have no conscience and no fixed place as they are nomads,” he said, adding, “Today they are in PTI but tomorrow they will be with any other power giant.”

Talking about the strength of the rally in Karachi on December 25, Fazl said that his party will gather more people in a single procession of a district than PTI gathered from all over the country.

‘JUI-F will be the best govt’

Fazl further said that he supports the demand for a Seraiki province.

He said that the government of JUI-F will be the best government of Pakistan, during which madrassas and mosques will enjoy the respect which they deserve.

He said that the aim of the rally was to eradicate corruption and unemployment from the country. “It’s only our party who has always raised a constructive opposition against the US war, which is against the interests of the people of Pakistan.”

The JUI-F chief led the procession from Multan and then addressed a gathering in Dera Ghazi Khan.

    On one side he says that PTI “just a paper, which will disappear soon” and on the other hand he says that “Today they are in PTI but tomorrow they will be with any other power giant”. So he consider PTI a power giant?? Is he confused or what??

    He is an opportunist who himself joined various alliances over the years to make money for himself and his family. These Hippocrates are good for nothing.Recommend

    The best kept secret of Musharraf, and the most dangerous weapon in the pocket of dictator, who delayed resignation from NWFP to save Musharraf. Guess who was this guy?
    By the way, the title should be establishment lashed out against establishment.

    He is deeply indignant because his own bid to get to power through American support badly failed. He could never believe that someone could ride on popular wave to the power. Hence he is describing how chronically he suffers from his lack of imagination.

    Isn’t this the very guy who was caught in the Wikileaks for telling the US authorities that there are potential dangers to his life in Pakistan and they should grant him visa to US and show him around???

    Also, isn’t he the one who joined Musharraf and now PPP? What is he complaining about? Not getting enough halwa?

    You are a disgrace for country,religion and to your family, Mr.Fazal-ur-Rehman.
    Not becauseyouare talking against PTI,but coz you never did one single thing in your life time,that can make people respect you.
    You have only given terrorism, extremism and dilusion to thecountry. I must say you are one of the traitors among many.
