Govt decides to ban JUI-F’s Ansarul Islam
ISLAMABAD: The government has decided to ban the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F)’s subsidiary party Ansarul Islam.
According to the authorities, a summary had been sent to the Interior Ministry in this regard. The government has said that the Ansarul Islam’s members were wielding clubs and the law did not allow any armed force.
It may be noted that the JUI-F’s subsidiary party was registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) as a political party. The party members had a few days ago presented the guard of honor to its head Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, for which it is being criticized.
The Ansarul Islam group members will lead JUI-F’s Azadi March by entering first into Islamabad on Oct 31. The JUI-F has said that the group would remain peaceful and would not resort to any violence.
Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader and Maryan Nawaz’s husband, Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar on Oct 9 announced to lend his complete support to the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s Azadi March.
While speaking to the media after meeting former prime minister Nawaz Sharif at Lahore’s Kot Lakpat jail, Safdar had said that he would attend the ‘Azadi March’ as per the instructions of Nawaz Sharif.
“Anyone who loves Nawaz Sharif will attend the march, I will follow Maulana into the dharna no matter what,” he had said.
He had remarked that Maulana’s March will be the downfall of Imran Khan’s government.
