Parliament becomes threat to Sharia: Fazal

ISLAMABAD, Dec 23: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) Chief Maluana Fazlur Rehman criticizing the sitting government’s policies in FATA Thursday said Parliament has become a threat to Sharia.

Talking to media persons outside Parliament House, Fazal said that JUI-F had joined the ruling alliance over assurances that legislations would be in conformity with Sharia.

He said that it was matter of grave concern that decisions were being taken on the dictation from foreign powers.

However, Fazal said that JUI-F as it has already quit the government alliance would not let the sitting government to follow external directives in making decisions and policies regarding national issues.

He said that though all political parties make tall claims about the sovereignty of the Parliaments but on ground realities were somewhat different. Sovereignty of the Parliament should be expressed by materializing the legislation carried out in the parliament, he said.

Fazal said that claimers of sovereignty of parliament should clarify why the joint resolution passed by the two houses regarding drones attacks in and reviewing the war on terror has not been followed.

He said that government claims of complete control and peace in FATA but presence of army in the said areas rejects the government’s assertions of all well there.

The JUI-F chief said that his party has never favoured dictatorship and it would oppose any such attempt in future.

Fazal said that Premier Gilani sabotaged the reconciliation policy of PPP co-chairman and President Asif Ali Zardari.

He said that to take the country out of the prevailing crises we needed to promote sense of self dependence and avoiding following foreign dictation.

When inquired about sacking of JUI-F Minister, Fazal said that if his party minister could removed from his position alleging violation discipline that why PPP leadership was not taking action against CM Sindh Zulfiqar Mirza who was repeatedly issuing statements against allied party MQM.
