JUI-F threatens to block highway between Afghanistan and Pakistan
2018-05-22
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] The Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam
...a Pak religious party. It is usually part of the govt, never part of the solution...
-Fazzl (JUI-F) led by Maulana Fazal Ur Rehman has threatened to block the highway between Afghanistan and Pakistain.

The party reportedly issued the warning after the decision by the government of Pakistain to merge Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) with Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, according to The Express Tribune.

JUI-F’s Fata chapter Mufti Abdul Shakoor said Sunday Fata’s merger with the K-P "is an international agenda which will not be supported at any cost."

Speaking during a presser with JUI-F’s general secretary Mufti Ijaz Shinwari and information secretary Jihad Shah, Mufti Shakoor said the party will stage a protest demonstration at the Pak-Afghan highway in Landi Kotal and a separate one at the Indus Highway in Darra Adam Khel simultaneously against ignoring the will of tribal people and imposing decisions on them against their wishes.

The party’s chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman
Deobandi holy man, known as Mullah Diesel during the war against the Soviets, his sympathies for the Taliban have never been tempered by honesty ...
had earlier announced that the party had decided to part ways with the ruling Pakistain Moslem League-Nawaz (PML-N) over the implementation of reforms in Fata.

Terming the merger a global conspiracy, Maulana Rehman had said that the government had backed off from the promise it made with their party for not going ahead with the merger.

Fazl, Durrani grabbed land meant for Kargil martyrs: PTI
2018-04-05
[DAWN] Pakistain Tehrik-e-Insaf
...a political party in Pakistan. PTI was founded by former Pakistani cricket captain and philanthropist Imran Khan. The party's slogan is Justice, Humanity and Self Esteem, each of which is open to widely divergent interpretations....
(PTI)’s central leader Shafqat Mahmood on Tuesday alleged that JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman
Deobandi holy man, known as Mullah Diesel during the war against the Soviets, his sympathies for the Taliban have never been tempered by honesty ...
and former Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa chief minister Akram Khan Durrani had illegally taken over 1,200 kanals of land allocated for families of deaders and demanded that the matter should be investigated by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Speaking at a news conference at the National Press Club here, Mr Mahmood, who is also the head of the PTI’s anti-corruption cell, said that in 2001 the KP government had given 140,624 kanals (17,578 acres) of land to Pakistain Army in Dera Ismail Khan
... the Pearl of Pashtunistan ...
for families of Kargil
... three months of unprovoked Pak aggression, over 4000 dead Paks, another victory for India ...
deaders, and other deserving serving and retired officials of the army.

"As per terms and conditions signed by the KP government and the GHQ, only legal heirs of the deaders and deserving army personnel were entitled to the allotment. However,
if you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...
in 2002 when the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) government came to power in KP and Mr Durrani became the chief minister, they both managed to get 600 kanals of land each and transferred the land in the names of their front men," he said.

"In 2008 when the Awami National Party
founded by Abdul Wali Khan in 1986. Part of the PPP-led cabinet 2008-13. The ANP is considered left wing, advocating for secularism, democratic socialism, public sector government, and economic egalitarianism....
and Pakistain Peoples Party formed the government in KP, the Revenue Minister Makhdum Zada Mureed Kazim from D.I. Khan also started efforts, like Maulana Fazl and Mr Durrani, to get the share in the land. In 2010-11, Mr Kazim illegally got allotted 150 kanals of land to his front men.

"In 2009/10, the NAB, KP, started an inquiry into the illegal allotment of the land to Maulana Fazl and Mr Durrani. Later, a second inquiry was started against Mr Kazim," he said.

Mr Mahmood said that NAB not only locked away
Drop the heater, Studs, or you're hist'try!
Mr Kazim, but he had been facing the case since then, but Maulana Fazl and Mr Durrani were neither arrested nor cases against them were pursued or taken up because they politically managed them.

He urged the current chairman of NAB to look into the issue and explain why cases were not pursued against the two leaders.

"Mr Durrani has a number of properties in different areas of the country and his property does not match with his known sources of income so NAB should initiate cases against both personalities because they have deprived families of deaders from their due rights," the PTI leader alleged.

He said that allegations should be investigated so that the land was handed over to the deserving people.

Fazl says world powers want to keep religious parties away from power
2018-03-26
[DAWN] The agenda of world powers is to keep religious parties away from power in Pakistain.

This was stated by Maulana Fazlur Rehman

-Fazl (JUI-F) while speaking at a big public gathering the party called ’Babul Islam Sindh conference’ held at the SRTC ground here on Friday night.

The maulana, who is also president of the recently reactivated religious alliance Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, criticised the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Pakistain’s politics. He alleged that people from NGOs were being sent to parliament through a well-planned conspiracy only to impose Western culture on the country.

He further said that it was the agenda of the United States to humiliate youngsters studying in madressahs so they may react [violently] and use their reaction as a pretext to close down the religious schools. He said selected people ‐ nawabs, khans and feudals ‐ were being imposed on the people as rulers. However,
the man who has no enemies isn't anybody and has never done anything...
he added, the JUI-F would stand in the way of such people.

Country will never act as US proxy in any war: Asif
2018-03-11
[DAWN] While giving a policy statement in the National Assembly, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said on Friday that Pakistain would not serve as a proxy for the United States in any war.

Another minister told the house that the government planned to repatriate Afghan refugees in two years.

The foreign minister said people of Afghanistan and other Moslem countries often wanted Pakistain to take part in the wars fought within their borders. "However Pakistain will not act as a proxy in any US-led war," he said.

Mr Asif was responding to a calling-attention notice of Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam

who wanted to know why Pakistain had not voted against the war in Syria during a debate in the UN Human Rights Committee.

Mr Rehman said that of the eight Moslem countries in the committee three Moslem states did not cast their votes, including Pakistain.

The minister said that lack of harmony and unity among the Moslem countries was the main reason behind the various problems they were facing. "No enemy can harm Moslems if they do not become controllers of the enemy." He said everyone knew who had taken the Lion of Islam Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi.

Fazl slams policymakers for India’s growing role in Afghanistan
2018-01-17
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] A key Pak politician and the leader of Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam
...the political wing of the Pak Taliban...
Fazal Maulana Fazlur Rehman
Deobandi holy man, known as Mullah Diesel during the war against the Soviets, his sympathies for the Taliban have never been tempered by honesty ...
has slammed the policymakers of the country regarding the growing role of India in Afghanistan.

Maulana Fazl reportedly made the remarks during his speech in the National Assembly of Pakistain on Monday.

"The United States do not trust us and that is why instead of Pakistain, there is presence of India in Afghanistan," he was quoted as saying in a report by The News.

Referring to the policy statement of Pakistain’s defense minister Khurram Dastgir, Maulana Fazl said that the policymakers of Pakistain believe that the meaning of isolation was that the United States and the western world was not with the country.

"But isolation means that we are not in good relations with neighbouring countries," he added.

This comes as the Pak officials have long been criticizing regarding the growing role of India in Afghanistan and in some stances have accused the security institutions of India and Afghanistan for plotting and destructive activities in Pakistain.

However,
you can observe a lot just by watching...
the Afghan officials reject the allegations and insist that New Delhi has played a key role in the reconstruction of Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
regime.

On the other hand, the US officials have also hailed the constructive role of India in Afghanistan and insist on further key role and contribution of India as well as Pakistain for the implementation of the new US strategy.

Decree against Afghan Taliban

[DAWN] THE strength of the Afghan Taliban
...Arabic for students...
mainly rests with their territorial control in Afghanistan and a ’religious’ narrative of the struggle against the ’foreign occupation’ of Afghanistan. Kabul believes they can be delegitimised if Pak religious scholars issue a fatwa, or religious decree, against the Taliban’s armed resistance.

Former president Hamid Maybe I'll join the Taliban Karzai
...A product, probably the sole product, of the Southern Alliance...

, but all attempts proved futile. However,
corruption finds a dozen alibis for its evil deeds...
Kabul is still confident as army chief Gen Qamar Bajwa reportedly promised the Afghan government in October that he would try to obtain a fatwa from Pak religious scholars.

To what extent a fatwa can affect a resistance movement such as that of the Afghan Taliban is debatable; it is not certain who will issue and support such a decree, as Pak religious scholars have in many instances declared the Afghan Taliban’s resistance a jihad. It is no secret that most leaders of the Afghan Taliban studied in Pakistain’s madressahs and that sectarian affinity still exists between the two. Nevertheless, as part of a Pak media delegation that recently visited Kabul, this writer felt that Afghan officials were hopeful that an anti-Taliban fatwa would come from Pakistain soon.

As Pakistain’s media is busy covering internal political crisis, Afghanistan is rarely discussed at public forums; the Foreign Office and ISPR have also not issued any substantive statement on the issue of Afghans anticipating a fatwa. In connection with the army chief’s visit to Kabul in October, the media only reported on the establishment of high-level contacts between the two countries and formation of working groups to increase military, intelligence and economic cooperation, apart from evolving a joint mechanism for the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistain. These were positive developments and will, indeed, help reduce the trust deficit between the two countries. Nevertheless, the reported fatwa component has not been highlighted in the media.

but didn’t understand his logic behind opposition to the merger of tribal areas with KP.

"I don’t know why Maulana Fazlur Rehman is opposed to the merger of Fata with Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa," he said.

Mr Sami said the JUI-F chief had never favoured bids to form alliance of religious parties.

He said ironically, Mr Fazl opposed the Shariat Bill in parliament though it was tabled by his teachers and even he made fun of it by declaring it shararat (mischief) bill.

"Maulana Fazlur Rehman studied at Darul Uloom-e-Haqqania for seven years but we don’t understand his aims and objectives," he said.

The JUI-S chief said he didn’t agree to the opinion that the Frontier Crimes Regulation was close to Islamic teachings, and rather declared it a system of brutalities.

‘JUI-F creating hurdles to Fata-KP merger’

was working on an agenda of someone else to keep the tribal people deprived of their due rights and urged the federal government to ensure merger of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas with Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa at the earliest.

Speaking at a presser at Beautiful Downtown Peshawar
...capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistan's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire.
Press Club, the forum chairman Farhad Ali said that the JUI-F’s recent convention on Fata issues had failed as majority of the participants belonged to settled districts who had nothing to do with the merger issue.

Mr Ali was flanked by Insaf Students Federation president Akhtar Gul, Islami Jamaat Talba focal person Waseem Haider, Khyber Youth Forum’s Aamir Afridi and Kuram Students Organisation president Mohammad Saleem.

He appreciated MNAs Shah Jee Gul, Shahabuddin and Sajid Turi and Senator Sajjad Turi for their efforts for the Fata-KP merger. He said that the students of Fata were determined to continue their struggle for implementation of the reforms.

The forum decided that it would intensify the ongoing struggle for merger of the tribal region with KP province. It proposed that a new committee should be constituted to expedite the reforms process in the tribal region.

Tolerance threshold for militancy
2017-09-09
[DAWN] Where differences of opinions crop up with the outside world or even with their critics within the country is on, for example, how to handle groups that the military believes have never gone rogue in Pakistain.

"We need to deradicalise these groups and try and mainstream them before attempting to disarm them. This is important as we can’t fight on too many fronts and layers at the same time," explained one former officer.

The directives by Jamaat-ud-Dawa
...the front organization of Lashkar-e-Taiba...
leader Hafiz Saeed
...founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba and its false-mustache offshoot Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The United Nations declared the JuD a terrorist organization in 2008 and Hafiz Saeed a terrorist as its leader. Hafiz, JuD and LeT are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Pak intel apparatus, so that amounted to squat...
to his men to contest elections under the banner of a new party he has created is seen as one such step. Moreover, this newspaper has carried news stories that another murderous Moslem leader, Maulana Fazlur Rehman Khalil
...one of the signers of Osama bin Laden's declaration of war against Christians and Jews back in 1998, when he was head of the Bangla jihad movement. The Pak govt's had him under house arrest a few times, but he seems to come and go as he pleases and remains the head of Harkat ul-Mujaheddin...
, is also on the verge of launching a political party for mainstream, electoral politics.

It isn’t clear how would these murderous Moslem groups-turned-political parties will react if they make no headway in electoral politics and their first attempts to secure seats in parliament to enforce their Islamic agenda are frustrated. Will they keep faith in the democratic process and persist or revert to jihad ‐ this time here?

Even if there is a desire in each state institution to brush away the mess created by decades of near-suicidal policies and start with a clean slate, it won’t be easy. And if state institutions continue to differ on the way forward even now then help us God.

In terms of the global environment, China may appear as if it is in our corner vis-à-vis the US but it would be foolish to assume Beijing’s tolerance threshold for religious militancy in Pakistain would be any different to Washington’s. Hope the policymakers understand this.

Fazl demands review of foreign policy

...the political wing of the Pak Taliban...
‐Faz chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman
Deobandi holy man, known as Mullah Diesel during the war against the Soviets, his sympathies for the Taliban have never been tempered by honesty ...
on Wednesday urged the government to take the policy statement of US President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
on Afghanistan seriously and review its foreign policy accordingly.

He told news hounds at the residence of federal minister Akram Khan Durrani here that President Trump’s new Afghan policy was an eye-opener for Pakistain and therefore, the government should frame its foreign policy in light of it.

"Trump’s statement is an open threat for Pakistain. The government should re-examine its foreign policy," he said, adding that Americans didn’t intend to leave Afghanistan.

Mr Fazl said the new US policy on Afghanistan clearly showed that instead of ending it, Washington had planned to continue war in Afghanistan for an indefinite period.

He said Islamabad should not rely economically on Washington and instead look for new economic partners.

"We should strengthen our economic ties with China," he said.

The JUI-F chief said Pakistain had long been in trouble due to the ill-conceived policy of former military ruler Pervez Perv Musharraf
... former dictator of Pakistain, who was less dictatorial and corrupt than any Pak civilian government to date ...
, especially in the wake of his decision to join the alliance against the so-called war on terrorism.

"Unfortunately, the successive government continued with Musharraf’s policies. Pakistain has been trapped in this war although it is neither a terrorist country nor does it support terrorism," he said.

Mr Fazl expressed concern
...meaning the brow was mildly wrinkled, the eyebrows drawn slightly together, and a thoughtful expression assumed, not that anything was actually done or indeed that any thought was actually expended...
about the reported violence against Rohingya Moslems in Myanmar and said the situation was intolerable.
