ISLAMABAD: The people of Pakistan think of me as a representative of Islam and Pakistan, while they label Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan as an agent of the Jews and the West, said Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam – Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday.

Speaking to media in Islamabad, Rehman said he finds commenting on Khan’s “failures” a useless exercise as Khan lacks vision and only wants publicity in the international media.

Responding to accusations made by Khan with regard to his peace march, Rehman said that if PTI chairman had asked him, he would have invited him over to his house.

“We don’t mistreat our guests, we serve them with better things,” he stated.

Rehman added that Khan is clueless about the tribal customs and traditions as he was not brought up in this culture.

Replying to a question regarding the dual nationality case, Rehman said his party is against dual nationals contesting elections.

“I think this trend of imported parliamentarians should end now,” he said.

    Why we should consider him as an agent of Islam? What are his services for Islam? In fact, by his bad practices he always implicate himself in corruption scandals.

    I’m not a fan of Imran Khan, but given his political history, Fazlur Rehman does not have enough integrity to even shine Imran Khan’s shoes, let alone have such comments be taken seriously.

    Not a fan of IK but think IK’s rally was to a good extent successful and IK has scored political points which are important if he wants to take his agenda forward. He won’t be able to achieve anything on his anti drone campaign but, his personal political graph, not that of PTI, should have gone up now. Maulana’s bad mouthing is a sure sign of desperation.

    How does that old Bollywood dialogue go? Choron ko sare nazar aye chor, that is pretty much the gist of things in Pakistan. Everyone fears being tread upon and losing their financial assets and interests to upstarts.


    Oct 8, 2012 - 8:37PM

    Maulana can be considered only as a Munafiq who has no principles or ethics and uses politics to mint profits as he did during so called jehad when he was involved in blackmarketing of diesel. He has never followed the principles of Islam and has no credibility. Even now he is actually on payrolls of the sitting government but sits on the opposition, yet votes for the teasury.

    What has this Maulana done for the common man ?
    Other than pass useless comments about someone, who has done a lot for the disadvantaged of society. What qualifies this Maulana to critique Imran Khan ? Not a single Pakistani politician should have the nerve to criticise Imran, a man who has built a state of the art Cancer Hospital which serves the poor and a top college for boy’s / girls.

    Ask the Maulana what has he done ? Why does the media give useless politicians like the Maulana a forum ? He is nothing but a quarte back, arm chair critic.
    Pakistanis should NEVER elect politicians to elected office like this useless Maulana, who indulge in negative, irresponsible behaviour, which borders on ignorance and imature behaviour. Such people will NEVER do anything for the masses. This Maulana should stay in the mosque and hopefully gives positive sermons.
    Does anybody think this Maulana represents progress and prosperity for the poor ?

    Establishment is quite comfortable with present setup and they want this setup to continue for next five years. Establishment want PML(N) in Punjab, ANP in KP, ‘Sardars’ in Balochistan and PPP + MQM in Sindh, everyone happy, everyone on job, it’s just like driving a car in fog, full concentration no future plans. PTI ensure that this setup will continue for next five years, who care for common people, they’re just common people.

Why can’t these self-professed “contractors of Islam” let others do something positive? There will a special cell in Jahanum for people like Fraud Molanna who use Islam for the sake of their own benefit. Shame, shame, shame…

    I consider myself as conservative, and I think of Fazlur Rehman as a big time hypocrite. Imran Khan may not e perfect but atleast he has a good record when it comes to achievements. Atleast he’s trying to do something for the country. This mulla should be stoned for saying he’s a representative of Islam! It’s because of him Islam can never be implemented in this country! Hypocrites!

    Mullah Fazal feels threatened when PTI is encroaching on his voters. Fazal has a good following among rightwing ideologues in northern Pakistan where IK is competing for the same block of voters. Fazal and IK both need each other during the next elections. PTI cannot do much without the support of at least one extreme rightwing party. They would have to ally either with JI or JUI, no doubt about it.

    When will our religious leaders learn positive politics? We agree for a moment with Maulana sahib that Imran does not know politics, Pakistani culture and he, according to Maulana, is the agent of Jews and West, but Maualna sahib is a mature and respected religious leader. But when he speaks like this, he will loose his credibility. please stop this.

I used to be a big fan of Imran Khan untill he stopped talking about cutting the curroption, became friends with he said he wouldn’t, played a one man game though pretended to have a huge team.

FR hasn’t done anything so for but to fillful his desire to get wealthy. He is even more worst not. Imran khan I believe he has a heart for Pakistani people and pakistan. I feel Imran khan is sincere he speaks his mind. He is honest educated man with a vision for Pakistan and some people are having a hard time believing it because people like Imran khan are not easy to come by.

    FR is an agent of satan. He, in the name is Islam sucking the blood of pakistani people. what has he done to stop the drones? He has no credibility. It is people like Maulana who have been exploiting pakistani people. when will He stop playing with the minds of pakistani people. He needs to stop now because it is getting too late. Does he understand the whole concept of human rights aside from politics. He is sickening. I am all for Imran Khan in this matter of using his influence for the purpose of stoping drones. some one in the right mind could only think the way Imran khan is thinking. FR should also do something about the drones and not criticize a human gesture.

I would have to agree with Imran in this regard that Peace March has really hurt the “dukandaari” business of these political sellouts!!!!
