Chief of his own faction of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman on Sunday refuted Prime Minister Imran Khan’s claim of receiving threats and claimed that the letter shown by him during the public meeting was “fake.”
Addressing a rally at Sector H-9 in Islamabad where the opposition parties are scheduled to hold a public meeting on Monday (today), the Maulana called the prime minister “an agent” of the West and alleged that he had been imposed on Pakistan to meet the agenda of West and destroy the country.
Fazal, who is also the head of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), said the participants of the PDM public meeting could hold a march towards D-Chowk in front of the Parliament House. He, however, said that they would not do so in respect of the Supreme Court’s orders which had barred public gathering at Islamabad’s Red Zone.
About the prime minister’s claim that he was receiving threats and got a letter, the PDM chief said: “He [PM] waved a false letter that he was receiving threats. You are making people fool by writing false chits but no letter can save you,” he added.
He claimed that he was “well aware of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s agenda.”
“We are well aware that your agenda is to taint Islam as you want to recognise Israel,” the JUI-F chief alleged.
He said that Imran Khan’s “agenda” was to “close all madrassas” but instead, “thousands of them opened up across the country.”
“Your agenda was to destroy the economy of Pakistan and we know that you are serving the same agenda that began during General Musharraf’s tenure.”
He said that the premier was “imposed on Pakistan as the last agent for this Western agenda so Islamic clauses contained in the Constitution of Pakistan could be eliminated.”
“You used foreign money to misguide the youth of Pakistan,” he said, adding that the United States had installed “such agents” all over the Islamic world.
“We are now announcing our win and your defeat,” Fazal sent a message to PM Imran Khan before a charged crowd.
Taking a jibe at the premier’s earlier statement — when he had said that he’d “surprise” the opposition during his speech before the no-confidence motion session — Fazal said that the only surprise today was the news of Shahzain Bugti parting ways with the PTI.
The Maulana said it was the prime minister and not the opposition who was seeking an NRO.
“We are not giving you NRO. Now you are under our control. We can drag you at any square,” he added in an apparent reference to the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) that had been issued by the then military dictator Gen Pervez Musharraf in 2007 to provide relief to the politicians facing corruption charges.
