DI KHAN: There is no reason for launching a military operation in the North Waziristan Agency, said Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday.

Talking to media in his hometown Adbul Khel, Rehman said the authorities should inform the public about any success gained through previous operations conducted in Swat and the tribal areas by former military ruler Pervez Musharraf and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) led current government.

The JUI-F chief said the law and order situation has become worse, and important government places are now targeted.

“The rulers can control terrorism if they act upon parliamentary resolutions instead of dictation from outside,” Rehman said, adding that a military operation in North Waziristan overlooks parliamentary declarations.

Rehman remarked that on one hand, parliamentarians themselves are not respecting their own resolutions while on the other hand, they blame the Supreme Court for overstepping the parliament’s sovereignty.

Commenting on the recent sectarian violence in the country, the JUI-F chief said that the involvement of foreign hands cannot be overruled. “Such incidents are meant to spread panic but the nation has the ability to overcome fear,” he maintained.

@Kaspar: I agree with you, but the problem is if you say that "Pakistani Mulvi have IQ level of 5th grader and or below", "Our politicians are basically feudal and are not concerned about there people", "Pakistan is divided one ethnic basis, it hard to find Pakistanis these days ", “Pakistan army treat Pakistan’s like 3rd grade citizens” Then you are asking for trouble. So if you don’t have the guts to eliminate the above then we can do is to regulate our Madarsa's, eliminate extremist, forget Kashmir and compete with India without arms but with trade and GDP.
