PESHAWAR - Majlis-e-Wahdat-ul-Muslimeen (MWM), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chapter, has lauded role of the federal government for imposing governor rule in Balochistan and termed it a move to squeeze sectarian violence in the province.

The MWM (Shia community), provincial general secretary Allam Sabeel Hassan while addressing a news conference here at press club on Monday said that imposition of governor’ rule in Baluchistan was a bold step taken by the federal government for bringing tranquility and end to target killing on sectarian ground in the province.

He also criticised JUI-F Chief, Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman for opposing the imposition of governor’ rule in Baluchistan, and added that the elected government in Balochistan had failed to maintain law and order situations and in situations like this imposition of governor rule was in the larger interest of the Balouchi people and Hazara community, he added.

Flanked by MWM Youth Wing Secretary Allam Mujtaba Hussaini, he remarked that Maulana Fazl should accept the reality and stop his hostility on the decision.

“Chief Minister Baluchistan Raisani had failed on all fronts during his regime to provide any relief to the people in the sectarian violence, he alleged and favoured his (CM) removal.

He also lashed out at the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for taking no action yet against the killers of Dr Riaz Hussain and other member of Shia community in provincial capital. “A large number of businessmen, lawyers, doctors, human rights activists and students across the country were lost their lives in sectarian violence, he lamented.
