The chief of Jamiat Ulema Islam (JUI-F) Maulana Fazalur Rehman vowed on Monday that the long march will be held at any cost in Islamabad.
Talking to media after meeting with Jamiat Ulema Pakistan (JUP) leader Per Aijaz Hashmi, JUI chief said that fake government have to back home as the fake prime minister could not fight Kashmir case and the international community was not with Pakistan.
“Sheikh Rashid had not sent any message over Azadi march and even no discussion was held with him as other parties including PPP and PML-M are agreed on the march and in contacts,” he said adding that he was not using the religious card.
On the occasion, JUP leader Aijaz Hashmi announced full support to JUI march.
“In case of my arrest, I will lead the 15 million march from my [prison] cell,” a determined Fazlur Rehman said. He said the people now accepted the JUI-F narrative that this government was “brought in” through rigged elections. They also accepted that only fairly chosen representatives should run the government, he added.
“The JUI has been saying this from the day one: in the first all parties conference, called right after the polls, the party pleaded for boycotting the assemblies and protest against the illegal occupant of the august office,” he said.
“We are continuously in touch with the Pakistan Peoples’ Party and this would continue. If we share the overall narrative, one can have different priorities. But the overall agreement also leaves room for consensus and rearrangement of priorities,” he said. “In addition to being illegal, the government has now also proved itself incompetent. All its policies have only added to peoples’ problems: be it economic or diplomatic.”
