Fazl says he doesn’t accept ‘fake’ parliament


ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Friday said that he does not accept the “fake” parliament let alone any legislation passed by it.

“No legislation has taken place since the formation of this parliament… their president promulgates 10 to 15 ordinances in one go and then these ordinances are hurried through the House,” he said.

“Let me assure you one thing, resolutions of a fake assembly like this and its legislations have no legal value. These are forced laws and the nation would never accept executive orders of the controversial prime minister,” he added.

Conveying the message of ‘unity’ and ‘harmony’ to all state institutions, Fazl, in his address to the protesters, said they were expected to support all opposition parties in uprooting this “incompetent and illegitimate government”.

He thanked and lauded Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai for accompanying him on the container.

Commenting on the ongoing negotiations with the government, he said, “We have conveyed the message to the government’s team to visit us when you have [Prime Minister Imran Khan’s] resignation with you”.

He lauded the sacrifices of armed forces for restoring peace in the country. “But, without our efforts and sacrifices you would not have achieved these successes,” he said.

“We did not give these sacrifices so that these evil rulers are imposed on us… If we cannot allow people to raise arms against Pakistan in the name of Islam then we also cannot allow Imran Khan to come into power through rigging,” the JUI-F chief said.
