Pakistan Farooq Sattar telephones Fazlur Rehman

KARACHI : Deputy Convenor Muttahida Qaumi Movement Farooq Sattar on Saturday phoned Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

Both the leaders agreed upon forging consensus and harmony on national issues, besides strengthening contacts between the two parties.

The Islamic faction parted its way with the coalition government after Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani sacked one of its three ministers, Azam Swati, and Minister for Religious Affairs Hamid Saeed Kazmi on corruption charge in the Hajj operations.

In Saturday’s telephonic conversation, Fazl and Sattar expressed their concerns over raging inflation, corruption and other public issues, including the imposition of reformed general sales tax.

Sources said the MQM leader is likely to hold a meeting with JUI-F chief in the backdrop of both the party’s stances against already unpopular and fragile government.

The MQM is also at odds with PPP, of which the former is ally in Sindh government. MQM says the PPP leadership should take notice of Sindh Home Minister’s statement who blames it for being involved in target killings in Karachi.
