ISLAMABAD - The speech of Jamiat-i-Ulema-i-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman at the floor of the National Assembly had further exposed the fragility of four-party alliance led by Pakistan Peoples Party running the governmental affairs at Centre and three provinces. Maulana Fazlur Rehman not only expressed his annoyance towards Pakistan Peoples Party but also came down hard on Muttahida Qaumi Movement for taking liberty against him in the National Assembly in his absence. The tabling of Nizam-e-Adl Regulation in the National Assembly and its passage with MQM abstaining was the triggering point of controversy. It later put the government in quite an awkward position when first MQM boycotted the proceedings of the National Assembly and afterwards they came to the House with couple of their members, also holding the berths in the Federal Cabinet, rose in opposition of the passage of Nizam-e-Adl Regulation terming it as a negation of the Constitution and the Parliament. On the other hand ANP, also in coalition with PPP at Centre and in NWFP Government, had inked the peace accord with militants in Swat and were vehemently supporting it and terming it the only option to rid the restive Swat region of the prevailing unrest. With MQM in no mood to show flexibility on Nizam-e-Adl Regulation Pakistan Peoples Party was facing difficulty in cooling down the temperature among the coalition partners who were almost pulling in opposite direction on the issue. With ANP terming the agreement as lifeline for its government in NWFP, MQM saw it Taliban overwhelming the whole country with specific threat to the port city of Karachi being a home of over three million Pashtoon nationals. Some of the insiders were of the view that MQM was opposing the signing of Nizam-e-Adl only because of the huge population of Pashtoon nationals in Karachi which could become some threat to them in future by coming up with similar demands in Karachi. The sources in Pakistan Peoples Party informed that both President and Prime Minister were quite disturbed over the situation and in Tuesdays meeting between the two, the issue of differences among the coalition partners also came up for discussion and President Asif Ali Zardari asked the Premier to take some corrective steps in this regard. Another matter of concern for the PPP led government was that the efforts made by Premier Gilani to normalize relations between MQM and ANP by taking ANP to Nine Zero Karachi could not bring the temperature down and both parties were at each others throat at all the available forums. The government was so much under pressure on the issue that Premier Gilani in his chat with media on Wednesday afternoon said that Nizam-e-Adl was linked to peace in Swat Valley and in case Sufi Mohammad failed to fulfil his part of the agreement, the government could review the accord. Monitoring Desk adds: Maulana Fazlur Rehman warned Margalla Hills would be the only buffer between Islamabad and Taliban if the latter reached Tarbela Dam, reported a private TV channel. Expressing his views in the National Assembly session, Fazl said that terrorism would swallow entire country if war-on-terror policy continued. Pakistan will be the loser in its own war, he expressed the fear. He said militants would also lay down their arms if Pakistan quit the war on terror. According to my knowledge, Taliban have seized control of Buner District too after the Swat Valley, Rehman said, adding that militants are moving closer to Tarbela Dam from Hazara. What kind of a message was given to the world by signing deal with a banned militant outfit, he questioned. The JUI-F chief further said that MQM could not give shelter to its leader Altaf Hussain how could they give refuge to anyone else.
