Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam leader Maulana Ataur Rehman announced that the party would be forced to stage a dharna (sit-in) against recent arrests of opposition members outside Corps Commander Peshawar’s house. He expressed these views while talking to a local news channel.
JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman was recently summoned by National Accountability Bureau (NAB). When asked to comment on the development, he asked that if Fazl is arrested, JUI-F party workers will hold a sit-in outside corps commander’s house in Peshawar.
In another speech, Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that he would not live without equality in Pakistan and if he did not get his rights, he would face the Pakistan Army like the Afghans faced the American Army.
