on Wednesday announced the government's decision to "engage with Fazlur Rehman

" in response to the JUI-F chief's declaration to march on Islamabad on October 31.
The minister said that a small political committee has been formed "to get in touch with Maulana Fazlur Rehman", which will be headed by Defence Minister Pervez Khattak.
"We are a political party and are fully capable and willing to deliver a political solution to political matters," said Qureshi, during a presser in Islamabad.
The foreign minister said that if anything the JUI-F chief says during the resultant talks "has political weight, we are ready to listen to it and if a reasonable solution emerges, we will accord that priority".
"It is not that we have any fear, I must lay stress on this.
"If someone thinks that with a dharna, governments can be sent packing then we have a 126-day experience in this [...] we are not novices in the matter," said Qureshi, with a slight smile.
