PESHAWAR - Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Sunday that Imran Khan could not take resignation from his own parliamentarians but he is demanding resignation of an elected prime minister.

"Attack on state institutions is sedition against the state and those who are making the woman and children their shields to attack state institution do not deserve any concession," he remarked while addressing a grand rally here at Khyber Bazaar on Sunday. JUI-F leaders Maulana Gul Nasib Khan, Maulana Shujaul Mulk and Abdul Jalil Jan were also present on the occasion.

The JUI-F chief said that PTI marches and mixed dance of male and female workers are plans to inject Western civilisation in the country. He said from the very beginning he had felt that these people are not working in the interest of the state but are trying to promote Western culture, which is not acceptable to JUI-F and its workers.

He added that the new generation has been deprived of its cultural norms and civilisation and it is following the culture and tradition of others, which will be strongly resisted. He said that Imran Khan and his few thousands workers could not implement their agenda on million of Pakistanis as JUI-F is not sleeping and it might take to the streets against such conspirators.

He said that there is no justification of prime minister's resignation and Imran should himself quit the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government as it also enjoys fake mandate. He said that it is power of the parliament to seek resignation of the prime minister.

He mentioned that illegal demands of Khan and Tahir-ul-Qadri have pushed both the leaders towards political death. He said that both the leaders have deviated from several promises which they had made with the administration.

He also asked Jamaat-e-Islami to end alliance with PTI in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, saying it does not suit to a religious party to make alliance with those who are following foreign agenda.


Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Siraj-ul-Haq said on Sunday that those inviting army for taking any unconstitutional step or imposing martial law were neither sincere with the people nor with the country.

Pakistan Army would put it weight behind democracy and constitution. Whoever is wishing for martial law is trying to push army into a swamp, he said while speaking at a news conference here at party's provincial headquarters.

Flanked by JI provincial leadership, he said, "August 30 is a black day in Pakistan's history. This black day occurred just because of rigid stance by both the sides."

He said that solution to the existing problem is mentioned in the constitution and democracy is the best path to resolve any crisis. He requested Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to start talks himself with both Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri.

The JI would play a positive role. To overcome the political crisis a national consultation meeting of political leadership of different parties is going to take place today (Monday) in Islamabad, he said.

Sirajul Haq while strongly condemning police torture on media persons said, "We condemn attack on media by police in Islamabad," He asked govt to provide protection to the people.
