Islamabad: Jammiat e Ulama e Islam (Fazal) (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman today refused to continue his mediator role.

In his one to one meeting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad, Maulana said parties are not serious about talks, so he cannot continue as a mediator.

Maualana Fazl bore strong resistance and opposition from within the party, when he chose to mediate between Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and government over resignation issue. He has lost two party leaders, since then including his favorite, Jaan Khan Achakzai.
