Firdous urges Fazl to shun negative politics, pursue democratic posture
ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan on Tuesday urged Jamiat Ulema e Islam-F (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to shun negative politics and pursue the democratic posture.
In a series of tweets, she said the JUI-F should not undermine the system by making unconstitutional and undemocratic demands.
Firdous Awan said Maulana Fazl was also perturbed that Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted to provide jobs to the youth by putting the economy on the right track.
“He is also aggrieved as to why a genuine public rule has established in the country for the first time instead of few families,” she said.
The special assistant asked the JUI-F chief not to exploit his workers to fulfill the desire of coming to the parliament. Maulana Fazlur Rehman should wait for four years. Instead of leaving the workers at the mercy of harsh weather conditions, they should be allowed to go back home.
She asked him to raise voice for the oppressed Kashmiri people.
On Nov 7, Maulana Fazl ur Rehman had warned of the extreme measures his party could adopt if demands of the opposition parties were not met.
In an interview with a news channel host, Meher Bokhari, Maulana Fazl ur Rehman had said if the government did not accept their demands then there would be anarchy in the entire country.
To a query, he had said, “Those who threaten us of severe repercussions, we threaten them the same.”
To another query, the JUI-F chief had said the participants of ‘Azadi March’ would not attack the law enforcement agencies rather they would receive bullets to their chest and lay their lives, however they would not retreat from Islamabad.
He had said if the country could not bear this then the rulers should abandon their offices.
