Jamiat Uleme-e-Islam-Fazl has also called for a level playing field for all politicians in the general elections, saying that all politicians should be out of jail.
“This cannot happen that my opponent is in prison and I give statements against him,” he said while addressing the party’s social media workers convention in Peshawar on Saturday. “I want my opponents to also have freedom. I want all the politicians out of jail.”
If someone has been arrested, the JUI-F chief said that then they have to legally prove themselves innocent.
Fazl claimed that there was no peace anywhere in the country. “There are four or five people who are running this country sitting in closed rooms. When I say such things, they say that Maulana wants to postpone the elections,” he said.
The JUI-F was of the view that people’s belief in the system erodes when the economy is weak.
He criticised the caretaker government for expelling Afghan refugees from Pakistan and advised them to think about the neighbouring country. Fazl was of the view that such a decision was affecting ties with Afghanistan, reminding the government that Pashtuns were not illegal immigrants.
