Maulana Fazlur Rehman is pushing the country towards fire: MQM
09 January, 2015
KARACHI: Addressing a press conference here on Thursday 8,Januaru,2015, Qamar Mansoor, a central leader of the MQM,said "Maulana Fazlur Rehman is pushing the country towards fire and pitching one brother against another".
HE called Maulana Fazl a sympathiser of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and said the JUI-F chief tried to divide the nation by ‘distorting facts' and exhibited a ‘biased mindset' on the matter of holding the Taliban to account. The MQM had already presented its stance over Saulat Mirza, who is on death row, he said.
"Saulat Mirza has been behind bars for 15 years, while Ajmal Pahari has never been convicted by a court," Mr Mansoor said, adding that Saulat Mirza's case was of political connotation.
He accused the Maulana of failing the nation from being united against ‘terrorists' through misleading statements and demanded him to declare foreign funding to his organisation.
Another MQM leader Babar Ghauri said Mr Rehman tried to divide the nation even before the Chehlum of the Peshawar school martyrs.
Maulana Fazl "nodded in the affirmative to the constitutional amendment in presence of the army chief during the All-Party Conference and opposed the same later", Mr Ghauri said.
