PESHAWAR - Central Ameer of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Fazlur Rahman has lambasted the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for following Western agenda and termed the PTI-led government is a system which is run by NGOs.
"There is nothing like the government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Jeans-wearing women are running the provincial government," he said.
"The US and Jewish agents in KPK are chanting anti-West slogans but behind the scene, they are working on western ideas," said JUI-F chief while addressing an impressive show against the growing lawlessness and price hike in the province here on main Grand Trunk Road on Sunday.
Thousands of activists and workers of JUI-F across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa attended the protest rally against the provincial government. The participants were carrying the party flags and placards, demanding establishment of sustainable peace and against the growing price hike in the province.
Besides, JUI-F Senator Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, the party central leader and Federal Minister Akram Khan Durrani, Senator Ghulam Ali, JUI-F spokesman Jan Mohammad Achakzai, Provincial Information Secretary Jalil Jan, JUI-F provincial and district Ameer from KPK and Fata and others also attended the protest rally.
Fazl Rehman added the current rulers in the province were bent upon destroying the culture of KPK and spreading immorality. He also criticized the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for growing lawlessness, incidents of kidnapping for ransom, price hike and unemployment in the province. "The PTI-led provincial government is a representative of western ideas, which has been involving to diminish Pakhtuns culture, on directions of foreign mentors," JUI-F chief said. He also said that the KPK government was a product of massive rigging in the last year's general elections. He viewed that Islam is the only system for progress and development of humanity.
"Our culture was attacked by the West," he said, added now war was fought on culture front and the West wants to damage Pakhtuns culture and traditions. He said that they were holding protest and sit-ins against drone attacks and the US and Jewish agents were promoting slogans of their foreign mentors in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He also termed the protest against drone strikes mere an exhibition.
The JUI-F chief said the vulgarity is being promoted among the people. He said the West has failed to convince him to follow its agenda. He said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa bureaucracy is not playing its role in policy making, as foreign NGOs are formulating policies and incumbent PTI-led government is being run from Islamabad.
Without naming PTI Chairman Imran Khan, he said that those who were raising voice against polls rigging in Punjab should look into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He said that the KPK government was a product of massive rigging committed during the last year's general elections.
Regarding talks with Taliban, he said that government should sort out peaceful resolution of all issues. He said that force policy would not produce positive results. He said the job of security forces is to play role for establishment of peace
"The JUI-F tribal jirga is ready to play role for establishment of sustainable peace in the country," he added. He said that if joint resolutions of parliament were fully implemented then peace would be ultimately restored in this country.
Similarly, he said the government had already got mandate through All Parties Conference but it was not respecting and honouring the national consensus.
They also passed a unanimous resolution, asking the government to provide protection to traders, initiate dialogue with Taliban, ensure appointment of teachers on merit basis and stop looting the funds of KPK in the name of Islam.
Fazl said writ of the state should be established at every cost either by operation or by talks. A jirga formed by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam is willing to play its role to restore peace from Fata to other parts of Pakistan, he added.
Fazl said the government should immediately announce a ceasefire and give tribal jirgas a chance to negotiate.
