2019-10-04 India-Pakistan||PPP, PML-N's position uncertain as Fazl announces 'Azadi march' against govt on October 27
[DAWN] Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam|
...a Pak religious party. It is usually part of the govt, never part of the solution...
- Fazl (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...
announced on Thursday that the party will begin its anti-government 'Azadi march' on October 27.
"The current government is the result of a fake election and fake results," said Rehman during a presser.
The PPP and PML-N, who along with the JUI-F had been holding near-daily meetings with each other to debate the anti-government action to be taken, have yet to indicate whether they will join the march on Oct 27.
The JUI-F chief said that all opposition parties had rejected the July 25, 2018 elections and had called for fresh elections. "In this regard, the Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam and Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal have carried out 15 'million marches' in the country to raise awareness among the people," he said.
"As a result of this illegal government and its incompetencies, the country's economy has sunk [...] traders have shut down businesses as a result of heavy taxation. The Moslems of Pakistain are in anguish over the state of religion in the country," he continued.
He said a meeting of JUI-F members was held today in which it was decided that on October 27 ‐ the day celebrated by Kashmiris across the world as Black Day ‐ the party will express complete solidarity with Kashmiris and with those demonstrations, a march on Islamabad will begin.
"This will be an Azadi march. Groups of people from all over the country will embark on this journey which will culminate in Islamabad, where we will send the government packing," he said.
