Sunni Ittehad Council Chairman Sahibzada Fazl Karim has said that negotiations with Taliban would be meaningless unless they lay down weapons, accept constitution of Pakistan and decisions of the apex court.  Speaking at Manzoor-al Arafeen Seminar and talking to the media at Al-Hamra on Sunday, he said that Taliban were killing soldiers and at the same time talking about dialogues with the government.

Sahibzada Fazl Karim said that there was need of making sincere efforts to save the state. He said that delay in elections would create unrest and push the country toward civil war. Referring to the statement of Secretary Defense, he said that the US and UK ambassadors should be summoned at the Interior Ministry to protest against attitude of their governments.

Ex-Federal Minister Religious Affairs Hamid Saeed Kazmi said that no evidence of his involvement in Hajj scam has been submitted to the court.

“Out of 36 witnesses, not a single has spoken against me”, he said. He said that people gave him more respect by giving welcome in Multan on release than during the time when he was holding the portfolio of federal minister.
