Maulana Fazlur Rahman opposes devolving HEC to Provinces

ISLAMABAD, April 7 : The Chief of JUI(F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said that the nation would have to standup against international pressures and threats to our army, parliament and the economy for ensuring security and independence of the country.

Talking to media at the Parliament House here on Thursday, the Maulana who escaped two attempts on his life in the last few days, said whether he remains alive or not, Pakistan must stay safe and secure.

He said one group or party cannot confront the challenges being faced by the country and all the stakeholders would have to sit together to overcome them.

In reply to a question, Maulana Fazlur Rehan opposed the devolution of Higher Education Commission to Provinces emphasizing that future of thousands of youths was linked with the HEC. He said no one opposes devolving of education ministry to Provinces but the Syllabus must remain with the Centre while the powers to register medicines must remain with the Federal Ministries. He said there would be problems in devolving powers to the Prov8inces but these could be sorted out through dialogue.

About the issue of missing persons in Balochistan, said the agencies involved in kidnapping of people from Balochistan consider themselves over and above the law. He said on the other hand elected representatives are answerable to the people. He said the relatives of the missing persons go to the elected representatives to express their concern but their voice do not reach these agencies.

Maulana Fazlur Rahman said the government has totally failed to over come the deteriorating law and order and worsening economic situation.
