|Fazl compares Fata situation with Kashmir|
|[DAWN] Even as Prime Minister is busy highlighting the plight of the Kashmiri people at the international level, key government ally surprised the National Assembly on Thursday when he said that the government was meting out similar treatment to its own people, living in the tribal areas.|
On the second day of discussion on the findings and recommendations of the Committee on Fata Reforms, the chief of his own faction of the (JUI-F) said: "I don’t see any difference between the people of India-Indian e and our tribal areas as far as the curbing of their rights is concerned."
For some reason, he said, the suffering of the people of Fata was not being highlighted as compared to the media coverage of the issue.
He did not stop there. Criticising the ongoing military operation in Fata, he said it seemed as if the action actually targeted peaceful rather than the Taliban, since the latter continued to rule the roost with a monthly income of Rs1.5 billion, which they extorted from government agencies and other coercive measures.
Mr Rehman claimed that every second shopkeeper in was receiving threatening messages from s, warning of dire consequences if they failed to pay ’protection money’.
In the ’s words, the kind of disgrace and humiliation that had been meted out to the people of Fata as a result of the ongoing military operation was unrivalled in recent history.
"First, they were dislocated in the name of the country’s greater national security; now their identities are being questioned and they are being forced to cross the Durand Line," said the JUI-F leader who has the distinction of being part of the last three successive governments, under Gen , Asif Ali Zardari and now Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Adopting an acerbic tone against the government of which he has been an integral part from day one, Fazlur Rehman drew parallels between the Line of Control (LoC) and the Durand Line, saying: "The two lines are undefined international borders; just as we have claims across the LoC, those living on the other side of the Durand Line have their own views. This is why the Fata region needs careful handling."
|Forced repatriation of Afghan refugees worst example of cruelty: Fazal-ur-Rehman|
|[Khaama (Afghanistan)] A prominent Pak politician and religious scholar has slammed the Pak government for its hard stance against the Afghan refugees, saying forced repatriation of Afghan refugees is the worst example of cruelty.|
Questioning the government’s stance against the Afghan refugees, Rehman said the situation in Afghanistan still remains hostile, emphasizing that there would be no need for the US and allied forces to stay in Afghanistan if there was peace in the country.
Rehman further added that the Afghan nationals must be treated well and should be repatriated with dignity and respect, calling the Afghan refugees as ’guests’ and ’brothers’.
Pakistain started crackdown against the Afghan refugees following a deadly attack on an army-run school in city of Pakistain.
The refugee chief urged Paks asked the Pak authorities late in June not to blame Afghan refugees for terrorism in their country.
The call by UN High Commissioner for Refugees Fillippo Grandi followed amid growing public calls for their deportation and worsening relations between the two neighbours.
Warning that the roughly 2.5 million Afghan refugees in Pakistain risked becoming a "forgotten" crisis, Grandi called on the international community to invest more funds to help them.
"My appeal is that, not only to the authorities but also to the local population: refugees as you know are not terrorists," Grandi said during a visit to a repatriation centre outside the northwestern Pakistain city of Peshawar.

Abbasi said the CTD has “spotted” such elements who planned to recruit the people and send them abroad for training.
"One of the suspect's is a master mind of sectarian killings," he claimed, adding that he was born in Sukkur and migrated to Karachi and has done his masters in economics.
Sharing the initial investigation report of the held suspects, the CTD Sindh chief said that the gang of militants had killed Hafiz Sajid, owner of My Choice Bakery in Shah Faisal Colony, because the victim had served as a “guard” of Maulana Aurangzeb Farooqi.

The suspects also confessed to their involvement in killing of homeopathic doctor Fazlur Rehman recently in the Landhi area over sectarian ground.
Moreover, the suspects were also involved in the murder of Maulana Habib Rehman, who was gunned down in Gulistan-i-Jauhar earlier this year.
The held suspects have also revealed their involvement in targeting Maulana Muhammad Yasir last year in February in Gulistan-i-Jauhar.
This gang of sectarian militants was also involved in targeted killings of two brothers, identified as Mohammad Tauseef and Mohammad Tanveer who were “active” members of the banned Lashkar-i-Jhangvi in Khokhrapar.

|Fazl opposes 'forced repatriation' of Afghan refugees|
|[DAWN] -Fazl’s (JUI-F) chief on Monday opposed the "forced repatriation" of Afghan refugees residing in Pakistain saying "the move is likely to instill hate among Afghans against Pakistain.|
"I warn the government of Pakistain against repatriating Afghan refugees through use of force,"Fazl said while addressing a gathering in the federal capital.
The JUI-F chief said, "It would not be appropriate to send the refugees back to the land of war, blood and fire after hosting them for around 35 years."
"Force repatriation of Afghan refugees will not benefit our cause, except making the Afghans an enemy of Pakistain," Fazl maintained.
He advised the government to make new friends in the World instead of turning everyone into an enemy of the country.
"We cannot afford to lose the sympathies of Afghan refugees by sending them back forcefully," Fazl added.
He was of the view that it was not the right time for repatriation of Afghan refugees as, according to him, "the security situation in Afghanistan was not suitable".
"We can take care of Afghan refugees for a year or more but cannot push them back to the valley of death," he asserted.
|Fazl rules out possibility of coup in country|
|[DAWN] PESHAWAR: -Fazl chief has ruled out possibility of military coup in the country.|
"I don’t see any possibility of military takeover in the country, no doubt Army Chief Gen is a popular commander," he said in reply to a question put to him during a here on Tuesday.
He lauded the Turkish people and President for foiling the coup in The JUI-F chief said that some elements tried to instigate the army for takeover by displaying portraits of Gen Raheel across the country. He said that those elements attempted to make Gen Raheel controversial.
"Those, who displayed portraits of Gen Raheel, should be tried under Article 6 of the Constitution," he demanded, adding that those elements had harmed the army chief through displaying his portraits.
There was need of strict action against those elements, who had invited the army chief to take over, he said.
Mr Fazl said that abortive military coup in Turkey was an international conspiracy.
|Imran Khan lambasts Durrani, Fazl at PTI's Peshawar rally|
|[DAWN] Pakistain (PTI) chairman on Monday criticised Federal Minister for Housing Akram Khan Durrani, asking him as to how he would topple the PTI-led (KP) government.|
Imran recalled Durrani's claims where he said that he can topple the KP government.
He did not spare the JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman, who often labels him a 'Jewish agent', and said that "Jews do not need agents when people like Fazlur Rehman are there to damage the country".
"Even if a Jew becomes the prime minister of Pakistain, Fazlur Rehman would not only accept a ministry from him but will also issue a religious decree allowing him to lead an Islamic country," said the PTI chief.
Turning his guns finally towards the premier, he reminded the crowd that people in the past had advised him to leave Nawaz Sharif alone and focus on the PPP chief Zardari who is more corrupt but then came Panama Leaks and everyone got to know that Nawaz Sharif's children own offshore firms.
He accused the prime minister of downplaying the issue through visits across the country and doing useless speeches instead of replying to the allegations in parliament and presenting himself for accountability.
"How can the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) bring other corrupt leaders to book when the man leading the country is corrupt himself," said Imran.
|PM announces international airport for Bannu|
|[DAWN] Prime Minister announced the establishment of an international airport in Bannu, alongside other development projects in (KP) on Tuesday.|
"We will build an international airport in Bannu," the premier told a cheering crowd. "Repeat with me: This is 'Naya Pakistain'," he hit out at the Pakistain (PTI) with their oft-repeated slogan.
In an address ostensibly aimed at wooing voters away from the ruling party in KP, Nawaz announced uplift projects for the province and lashed out at the PTI as both parties continue to trade barbs over Panamagate.
A war of words between opposition leaders and the government has escalated over the past few weeks, with some opposition parties holding anti-corruption rallies and calling for the PM's resignation over allegations of corruption after the Panama Papers revealed the Sharif family's offshore holdings.

|Fazl advised bed rest|
|[DAWN] (JUI-F) chief was on Thursday admitted at the Pakistain Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) for several hours for the treatment of a stomach problem.|
The JUI chief was kept under observation and after a number of tests discharged in the evening with an advice to have complete bed rest and avoid spicy and oily diet.
Maulana Rehman, who has been suffering from diabetes for over 10 years, was seen by gastroenterologists Dr Qurratul Ain Haider and Dr Waseem Khawaja.
Dr Khawaja later told Dawn that spicy and oily diet was the major cause of the stomach problem.
"As the diet was not healthy, it caused swelling in the stomach. Injections were given to decrease the swelling," he said.

|Only Ulema are patriots, says Fazl|
|[DAWN] Terming Ulema the only patriots in the country, , chief of the -F (JUI-F) has said that Madressah is a fort of Islam and a peaceful place.|
Talking to s at the Jamia Ashrafia here on Tuesday, he said seminaries imparted a lesson of peace, tolerance, love, affection and the religion.
He said were anti-state and bereft of any religion and terrorism should be rooted out of the country.
He accused the secular forces of hatching conspiracies ‘for dollars’ and said only an Islamic system would make the country a better place to live.
Maulana Fazl said s were the first to step forward for protecting the country in times of crises and the seminaries would foil all conspiracies.
|JUI-F chief calls for making Pakistan a true Islamic welfare state|
|[DAWN] (JUI-F) chief has called for making Pakistain a true Islamic welfare state and introducing the Islamic system in the country.|
He was addressing the 77th annual Dastar-e-Fazeelat Conference at the Jamia Mazharul Uloom, Manzilgah, on Tuesday. The conference was presided over by caretaker of Dargah Halejvi Sharif, Abdul Samad Halejvi.
The JUI-F chief said his party opposed moves to promote secularism in the country. He claimed that Pakistain was created in the name of Islam and solution of country’s all problems lied in following the guidelines provided in the Koran and Sunnah. Introduction of secular ideas in the name of moderation and progressive thoughts could not be accepted, he added.
He criticised the rulers and some politicians for what he called promoting secular ideas in the country. He accused the rulers of handing over the affairs of the country in the hands of international NGOs.
The JUI-F chief said international conspiracies were being hatched against the Islamic world and madressahs (religious seminaries). Some politicians and NGOs are trying to portray a bad picture of madressahs and they are forcing the government to take action against them. He claimed that raids had been conducted on thousands of madressahs, but not a single terrorist was found there.
Maulana Fazl held the West, particularly the United States, responsible for bloodshed in Islamic countries and said the had failed in finding solutions of international disputes which was the main cause of unrest in different parts of the world.
|State vs clerics|
|[DAWN] THE religious right in the country is once again in a state of fervent agitation. Ostensibly, this is because theAssembly recently passed a historic women’s rights law. Yet, other provinces have passed similar, arguably more robust, laws in recent times and there has been little outcry. The difference this time may be the straits the religious right has found itself in and its urgent need to put pressure on the federal government -- the PML-N -- to reverse policies that have caused it to lose ground in the public arena. The signs are several. The conference convened by the in Mansoora on Tuesday saw many speakers veer away from the Punjab law and condemn the hanging of Mumtaz Qadri and the clampdown on the activities of the Tableeghi Jamaat. More remarkably, in attendance were avowed anti-democrats like , whose interest in parliamentary democracy is nil. The constellation of ignominy that gathered in Mansoora clearly has wider goals than simply nullification of a pro-women law.|
The recent fulminations of Fazlur Rehman, the JUI-F chief, give an indication of what those wider goals may be. In evoking the spectre of a PNA-style opposition alliance, the maulana appears to be seeking unity of the religious right so as to put concerted pressure on the centre, with the intention of either bringing down the federal government or aggressively increasing the public space for the religious right and its partners. Behind those grand schemes lies a harsh reality: the JUI-F and its political and cohorts face an existential crisis. The National Action Plan made explicit for the first time the need to combat religiously motivated militancy and also called for the regulation of the sprawling network of madressahs across the country. In truth, however, the slow collision between the state and religious right had already begun. The infamous outburst of Munawar Hassan in November 2013, in which the former JI chief condemned Pak soldiers drawing a sharp response from the military, may have set the parameters of conflict and dissent.
What remains to be seen is how firm the PML-N will stand in this ideological conflict between the forces of regression and those on the right side of history. Pakistain must return to the vision of its founding father and become the progressive, modern and thoroughly democratic country that the Quaid wanted it to be. Thus far, the PML-N has surprised with its willingness to dabble in more progressive and forward-thinking politics. Yet, its mettle has not truly been tested. The Punjab Assembly is little more than a rubber stamp for the Sharif family’s pet projects. The hanging of Mumtaz Qadri was cleared by the courts. Now comes the real baptism of fire -- stand firm and stand tall against the religious right and the PML-N will earn itself a place in history. Crumble now and history will be less forgiving.
