Maulana Fazl terms Peshawar rally as referendum against govt

PESHAWAR – Jamiat Ulema Islam-F (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday declared the PDM’s Peshawar rally as referendum against the incumbent federal government.

Addressing a PDM public gathering, the JUI-F chief said that people of Peshawar have held a referendum, they wanted to get rid from the rulers who were imposed on them through ‘rigging’. He also declared a “war” against Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government.

“The government and its supporters were confused by the public-gathering of PDM. We have declared war. It is a great sin to retreat from the battlefield,” he added.

Fazlur Rehman said that all political parties agree and it is the movement’s “clear stance” that the incumbent government came to power through a “rigged election”.

He regretted PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz was unable to attend and expressed his condolences over the death of her grandmother Shamim Akhtar. He also extended his condolences to the families of Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth and Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi over their passing.
