ISLAMABAD:


Misunderstanding is being created regarding role of religious seminaries which is the biggest network of education in the country, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Wednesday.


Addressing a press conference, Fazl said that his party would continue cooperation with the government in its efforts to wipe out terrorism from the country. Sectarian harmony was the aim and responsibility of the Majlis-e-Ulema, he said.


Fazl said JUI-F had opposed targeting of seminaries on the pretext of terrorism, adding legal action should only be taken against unregistered seminaries. He said Peshawar incident was a heinous crime against humanity and culprits should be given harsh punishment. Fazal asserted that only banning hate and provocative literature was not enough and demanded stern action against writers and publishers as well.

This network of education is what needs to be replaced by something modern and useful, otherwise these dubious personalities like this Rehman want that system to remain in place, to continue to produce the army of followers they need for their ultimate goals which half of the Pakistani society wouldn't want.
