PESHAWAR - The central leadership of Difah-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) on Monday strongly rejected the intended restoration of NATO supply, threatening street protests to resist this decision.

They stated that instead of Parliament, this sensitive decision should be decided through referendum, whether to start or not the suspended NATO supply.

‘The rulers have ruined the economy and weakened the defence of the country through their immature policies’, DPC Chairman Maulana Samiul Haq said while addressing a meeting of the Council here at a local hotel in Peshawar. In the meeting, the intended decisions of the Parliament regarding the restoration of NATO supply route and Pak-US relations were discussed.

In the declaration of the meeting, they blamed that the wrong decisions of the government have paved way for rebellion in Balochistan. Maulana Samiul Haq said that through a letter he had also appealed to the members of the Parliament to give their opinion according to the aspirations and sentiments of the nation instead of violating their oath by taking any decision on the instigation of the US puppet rulers.

‘If the members of the Parliament gave a decision to restore NATO supply route, the DPC will ask the masses to besiege the houses of the Parliamentarians’, he said. ‘We want to tell the incumbent rulers that we will not let them take any decision against the interest of the country’, he added. He announced that very soon the DPC will also hold a huge gathering in Muzafarabad.

He also announced to hold Difah-i-Pakistan Conference in Peshawar on April 15th and in Quetta on April 26th. They also expressed concern over the changes in Islamiat syllabus by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and strongly condemned any such move to remove literature from the syallabus.
