The chief of his own faction of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-F Maulana Fazlur Rehman has alleged that, “the Western lobby and its agents are bent upon waging war on Muslim countries, including Pakistan.”
He was speaking at the ‘Mahmood Ghaznavi conference’ held at Swari earlier yesterday. He claimed that the Western countries were busy hatching conspiracies against the Muslims throughout the world.
He said religious seminaries and mosques spread Islamic teachings, warning that any action against seminaries and ulema would create unrest in the country.
Mr Rehman said in the presence of JUI-F no one could dare amend blasphemy law, and change school syllabus and uniform. He accused the PTI of promoting vulgarity, obscenity and secularism.
Senate Deputy Chairman Abdul Ghafoor Haideri and other leaders also spoke on the occasion.
In Mardan, talking to media persons at the residence of party leader Maulana Imdadullah in Katlang tehsil, Abdul Ghafoor Haideri alleged that the Paris attacks was a conspiracy to cause more bloodshed in the Muslim countries.
He said Muslims were the worst victims of terrorist acts, and insisted that they would bear the brunt of the aftermath of the Paris attacks.
He claimed that vested designs of the world powers were behind the attacks, adding: “The US and its allies have joined hands against Muslim countries.”
Replying a question regarding the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project, he said the federal government should implement all the decisions taken at the all-party conference a few months back.
He said there was nothing to worry about the press release issued by the ISPR insisting on good governance, adding steps were needed to be taken for improving governance across the country.
Mr Haideri said as a state institution, it was responsibility of the Army to pinpoint weak areas to the government with the purpose to bring improvement there.
To a query about Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif’s visit to the US, he said the armies of both the countries should work jointly for improving their working relationship.
The JUI-F leader said there was no threat to democracy and that Pakistan was passing through a critical juncture and couldn’t afford any misadventure.
