KP govt warns baton-wielding JUI-F workers of action
[DAWN] The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government here on Sunday warned JUI-F of taking action against its baton-wielding workers parading in uniform.

Addressing a presser, Provincial Minister for Information Shaukat Yousafzai took exception to JUIF’s gathering in bucolic provincial capital where volunteers of Ansarul Islam, the security wing of party, were doing rehearsal for Islamabad sit-in.

He said that such parades were in violation of National Action Plan, which had been signed by all the political parties.

He said that the government would lodge cases against those, who paraded on roads in uniform. He said that governments would not allow anyone to wear uniform as there was only one uniformed force in the country.

The minister said that provincial government would never allow any political or other actors to form a private force as such forces were direct threat to the writ of the state.

He said that Sunday’s gathering was violation of NAP. He said that currently government was not considering any arrest, however, cases would be lodged against those doing parades in uniform.

Mr Yousafzai said that government would not allow JUI-F to use children of seminaries for its political ends.

He said that JUI-F was agitating just to free Nawaz Sharif
...served two three non-consecutive terms as prime minister, heads the Pakistain Moslem League (Nawaz). Noted for his spectacular corruption, the 1998 Pak nuclear test, border war with India, and for being tossed by General Musharraf, then by the courts...
and Asif Ali Ten Percent Zardari
...husband of the late Benazir Bhutto, who has been singularly lacking in curiosity about who done her in...
from the clutches of accountability.

He said that JUI-F chief wanted to regain the space he lost to PTI in the previous general elections. He said that JUI-F not only wanted its political revival but also wanted to make relevant the people, who were behind bars on charges of corruption, in the politics of the country.

The minister said that 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...
could not wrap up the democratic system through use of his private force. He said that Chief Minister Mahmood Khan had categorically stated that his government would never allow engaging seminary students in the undemocratic activities.
