Ameer of his own faction of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said that only establishment is powerful in the country and politicians should never undermine establishment.

In an interview, he said he doesn’t know the names of those included in the negotiation process with Taliban.

He asked the government to tell the names of those who were going to hold talks with Taliban so that he would give an opinion in this regard.

He commented that tribal leaders had been ignored in process of talks and obstacles had been felt by Establishment.

Talking about statement of Munawar Hassan, Maulana said that army holds grip over national matters and JI only expressed its own point of view, though, Munawar Hassan should have to issue a balanced statement, he added.

To a query, Maulana said that US granted $ 500 million to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government through NGOs that is why Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) that was chanting slogan of NATO blockade now has come down on just one day protest.
