PESHAWAR: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Secretary General Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri said on Wednesday that first information report (FIR) of any terror incident in the public meeting of opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will be lodged against Prime Minister Imran Khan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mehmood Khan.
In a statement, the JUI-F leader said the prime minister, federal minister Ali Amin Khan Gandapur, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) central leader Saifullah Niazi and other leaders are actively participating in the election campaign in Gilgit-Baltistan which is a clear violation of the election code of conduct. He said the Election Commission must take notice of these violations.
He said the prime minister and chief minister would be considered responsible for security lapse if anything untoward happened during the PDM rally in Peshawar.
In an earlier statement, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri had said that the public meetings of opposition alliance will continue despite the tragic terror incident in a madrassa in Peshawar.
Talking to media persons after visiting the madrassa in Peshawar where a blast happened few days ago, Abdul Ghafoor Haideri said the government writ is invisible. He demanded formation of a high-level judicial commission to probe the incident.
The JUI-F leader said the party chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman is saying from the beginning that this government is incompetent. He said the government has failed to control sky-rocketing inflation and government writ is invisible, while joblessness is on peak.
Abdul Ghafoor Haideri said the terror attack in Peshawar madrassa was an extremely tragic incident, but such attacks cannot stop the opposition’s rallies. He said it is a matter of pity that the students of madrassas are treated differently from students of colleges and universities. The JUI-F leader demanded Shuhada Package for those who lost their lives in the madrassa blast.
Earlier, the KP government had urged the alliance of opposition parties to postpone their rally in Peshawar keeping in view of the threat of terrorism in the city.
KP Minister for Labour Shaukat Yousafzai said in a statement that the opposition parties should hold talks with the KP government on the issues instead of putting security of the city at risk. However, he made it clear that talks will be held on all issues except accountability matters.
