ISLAMABAD- JUI-F has announced country wide protest demonstrations, over the killing of Dr Khalid Soomro, besides jamming the major roads all over the country on Sunday.

Maulana Fazl ur Rehman said that no more time can be given to helpless state. It seems as if state has failed in protecting life and property of people.

“Arrest killers and bring them to justice or state should accept its responsibility. Law will not be taken into hands by us but a thing like law is not in place in the country,” he said this while addressing a hurriedly called press conference today. JUI-F general secretary Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidri, housing Minister Akram Khan Durrani, Maulana Atta ur Rehman and others were also present on the occasion.

Maulana Fazl said that all the highways will be blocked today. Workers should come on the roads and hold protest demonstrations, he added. To a question about November 30 protest he said public meetings and dharnas kept on going earlier. We are in mourning and voicing protest is our democratic right, he added.

Responding to a question he said “what time should we give to a helpless state? Tell us what our crime is. Suicide attack was carried out on me and over 200000 workers were present on the occasion, but we did not take the law into our hands. We are being punished for remaining calm.” To a question he said that no one has contacted us so far at government level in regard to this incident.
