Fazl calls Imran’s Taliban office suggestion ‘childish’

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman on Thursday called PTI chief Imran Khan’s suggestion to allow the Taliban for opening office as ‘childish’. Speaking to the media, the cleric said martyrdom of a major general and attack on church have prompted reaction from the military, the government and political parties.
He said Imran’s suggestion for allowing the Taliban to open office is lack of knowledge about the ground realities. He said the situation would be reviewed after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s return.Fazl said it seemed that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had started working on its real agenda over the issue of blasphemy law. He said no one should think about amendments in it, however, debate on how to stop its wrong utilisation should be held.
Commenting on the local bodies’ polls, Fazl said the elections were a constitutional requirement.
Meanwhile, addressing reporters in Lahore, the PTI chairman said if the all parties conference (APC) had decided on dialogue, then everything should be done to uphold that decision.
He said the dialogue with Taliban would be within the ambit of the constitution of Pakistan if people were serious and imposed ceasefire immediately.
Asked about who would serve as mediators, he said the people in the Tribal Areas could be counted on to do the job.
“The government had successfully entered into an agreement in 2004 before former president General Pervez Musharraf sent military into the area,” he added.

    Those who supported Imran Khan are disappointed by his lack of political acuity. Even his own party rep has said IK's "opinion" is not that of PTI party. Just because US allowed office for Afghan Taliban talks now IK wants to emulate but Pakistan Taliban is different organism & situation. What do you want Pakistan people to do, open their houses to Taliban in following IK??
