ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Tuesday reaffirmed the government’s commitment to resolve all the issues with the Jamiat Ulema e Islam-F (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazl ur Rehman through dialogue.
“Maulana Fazl ur Rehman is a senior politician and hopefully he will not tread the path which oust him from the political ground,” Firdous Awan said while talking to the media in Islamabad.
She said Maulana Fazlur Rehman should be careful in his choice of words for the democratically elected prime minister.
She said he should refrain from hurting the sentiments of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers and he should also not hurt national interest and Kashmir cause through his narrative.
Alluding to the judicial reforms, the special assistant said the government had initiated the process by bringing amendments in the outdated legislation.
She said the government had brought eight ordinances pertaining to the basic human rights of the people. She said the ordinances would be introduced in the parliament to change them into effective legislation, for which she also sought the cooperation of the opposition parties.
The special assistant on information said the PTI government would take the requisite steps to turn into reality the vision of providing speedy and inexpensive justice to the masses.
Firdous said that she had apprised the Prime Minister about the dilapidated condition of the district courts of Islamabad. She said a judicial complex will be established to shift the district courts there.
On Nov 1, Firdous Ashiq Awan had asked the organisers of the ‘Azadi March’ to respect the agreement reached with the government and do not create difficulties for the residents of the capital territory.
“The government has not created any hurdles in the way of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F)’s protestors rather provided them all the facilities including water and electricity to the protest place of their choice,” she had said talking to media in Islamabad.
