Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said Thursday that Karachi is Pakistan’s economic jugular vein, and his party won’t allow anyone to cut it.
Addressing a rally at the Bagh-e-Jinnah Ground in Karachi, Fazl said that his party would restore peace in the metropolis, adding that it has always stood for ethnic harmony in the city and has always rejected militancy. He further said that his party has adopted a democratic struggle under the Constitution of Pakistan.
The JUI-F leader told his party supporters that they have to politically win Sindh from its oppressors in the coming elections. He added that the religious seminars must not be looked with suspicion, adding that the religious people are not being given to get state power.
Fazl also said that a few apologists want to interpret Islam according to the whims of West so that they can be accepted there. He requested the clergy to shun the sectarianism as it is hurting the image of Islam.
The JUI-F leader said that Afghanistan has shifted towards US and India, and has maintained a distance with Pakistan.
