Expressing her views in Programme of Private TV Channel, the Former Minister alleged that a well thought conspiracy was planned to malign her political career, dignity and issuing of fatwa by Jamia Hafsa was part of that conspiracy.

Answering to a question, the former minister observed that some elements were behind the failure of dialogue between Chaudhry Shujjat Hussain and Lal Masjid administration.
She said she worked very hard for the betterment of party and Government but no minister and women closed to her helped her in her critical time.
She made it clear she would not join Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) at any cost and would remain in PML-Q.
Lot sof work has to be done for the elimination of terrorism and extremism from the country, she maintained.
