Deteriorating law and order: JUI-F leader asks chief minister to quit office

Says provincial government has no justification to remain in power.

Our Correspondent December 29, 2014

SWABI: Expressing concern over the deteriorating law and order situation, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl’s (JUI-F) provincial chief Maulana Gul Nasib Khan on Monday said Chief Minister Pervez Khattak needs to confess his failure and vacate the office immediately.

Addressing a ceremony at Jamia Mazharul Uloom in Dagai, Swabi, Khan said his party was in favour of military courts “due to the failure of the provincial government”. He lashed out at the ruling coalition saying Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and its allies had no justification to remain in power.

The JUI-F leader said his party has made its stance on terrorism very clear, because of which their chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and other leaders have been targeted by militants. He also threw his weight behind capital punishment, saying those who committed heinous, immoral and inhumane acts deserved to be hanged.

Khan, however, made it clear JUI-F will not let anyone defame seminaries, saying rulers must realize their own blunders instead of blaming seminaries. He added the chief minister and other custodians of law need to tell people how the militants entered the city and succeeded in carrying out the attack on Army Public School which is surrounded by sensitive installations.

On the occasion, religious scholar and chief of Jamia Mazharul Uloom Maulana Hamdullah Jan handed a cheque of Rs0.4 million to Maulana Gul Nasib Khan for the welfare of displaced people.
