This guy has no principles whatsoever. Even after PPP got wiped in the elections last election for their poor performance, JUI-F still thinks it's a good idea to side with them. Imagine if their votes ever questioned their moves?!

Maulana Fazal is not only a maulvi but a good politician also.Raza Rabbani is really a very suitable candidate for the slot. Very clean, why not.
