Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F leader Mufti Kafayatullah demanded enforcement of Shariah in Pakistan, and hoped that then peace would return in the country.

He also condemned the killing of Frontier Corps troops by Taliban. He said that Taliban could be convinced to stop terror activities though enforcement of Shariah. "In Peshawar, Black Water, CIA, Raw, Mosad and other anti-Pakistan agencies are working. Our enemies' ultimate target is to capture Pakistan's nuclear weapons. The JUI-F's complete support is for the Pak Army and the army is fully capable of protecting the country," he said.

Addressing a press conference at a seminary here, he said that all the problems could be solved though negotiations and not through war as military action could not be proved fruitful in the last 10 years. He said that the government was not serious in talks with the Taliban. However, he added, the JUI-F leadership was the biggest supporter of negotiations. He said that terrorism was being connected with the religious seminaries where peace is taught through holding of seminars on peace. He said that seminars would be on 20th of March in Multan, on 23rd in Karachi, on 27th in Peshawar and on 30th in Quetta.
