JUI-F protests against attack on Fazl’s convoy


LAHORE – The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) on Wednesday held a protest outside the Lahore Press Club against the attack on JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s convoy in Swabi.
JUI-F leaders including Maulana Amjad Khan, Qari Sanaullah, Maulana Mohibun Nabi, Qari Amjad, Hafiz Abu Bakar and Abdul Majid Haqqani attended the protest. The protesters burnt US flags and chanted anti-US slogans. Addressing the protesters, Amjad termed the attack as an US conspiracy. He said that Fazl had irked the “slaves of the West” by passing a unanimous resolution from parliament to review the foreign and domestic policies of the country.
Other JUI-F leaders said that the Awami National Party (ANP)-led government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had totally failed to establish peace in the province.
