KARACHI: Chief of JUI(F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Sunday that the Sindh government was trying to impose its dictatorship on madrassas.
Addressing his supporters and party loyalists at a workers convention in Karachi, Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman said that a one-sided law would not be acceptable. Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman said that the Jamiat-Ulema-Islam was established in 1919 and he was happy that it was almost a century old. He also said that during the by-elections in Taunsa, JUI(F) workers and loyalists were subjected to assault and torture.
Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman asked the Election Commission of Pakistan to investigate the recently-held Taunsa by-elections for rigging. He demanded that the government expunge all fake cases registered against (JUI-F) workers at once and claimed that the government wanted to impose dictatorship on madrassas through legislation. -Web Desk
