SUKKUR: Chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) Fazlur Rehman has said that his party did not want to part ways with the government but wanted to mend the situation living within the system. Talking to media persons before consultative meeting of party at Manzalgah Seminary in Sukkur on Saturday, Fazlur Rehman said that protest of his party was not aimed at withdrawal of its support and cooperation to the government but to pinpoint the discrepancies in its policies.

He said before questioning him about leaving the government alliance, one should ask Khurshid Shah that when he is going to join the government. The JUI-F chief said that as terrorism in the name of religion and sect is unacceptable likewise targeting religious institutions over the suspicion and alleged involvement in terror was also unjustified.

Fazl said that there exist more than 26,000 registered seminaries across the country, 22,000 have applied for registration while only 241 seminaries were unregistered which is less than zero point figure. He said that like other educational institutions, religious seminaries are also sacred. Terrorism cannot be linked with religion, sect, linguistic, region or caste, he asserted. The JUI-F chief said that terrorists are enemy of humanity and all should be united to flush the menace from the country and the region.

He said that difference of JUI-F over the 21st Constitutional Amendment was that it had not clarified all aspects of terrorism and it was the constitutional right of his party to express concerns over it. Fazl said that when the 21st constitutional amendment was adopted unanimously, the government delegation was holding dialogues with him at his chamber therefore without participation of JUI-F in the law making process is discriminatory act. He said that no where in the world, it happens that government consults opposition but ignores its allied parties before making any constitutional amendment.
