Fazl demands immediate decision in PTI’s funding case


Pakistan Democratic Movement chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Friday demanded an immediate decision by the Election Commission of Pakistan in prohibited foreign funding case of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

Addressing a press conference, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who is also the central ameer of Jamiat Ulema Islam-F said that PTI’s foreign funding was pending for several years and urged ECP to decide it immediate.

He said that people of Pakistan knew that which party had received foreign funding from rival countries and this party might be banned if it would be found guilty.

He said PTI lawmakers of Punjab Assembly were de-seated on the letter of PTI Chairman while almost a similar letter of PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain was ignored in a same case.

He said decision in the case of Deputy Speaker Punjab Assembly’s ruling might be different if a full court bench of Supreme Court had been formed. He said double standard in the dispensation of justice could weak democracy and confidence of people, he added.

He said, “We highly respect state institutions including judiciary and demand all decisions should be taken on merit.” Fazl said that institutions should not be used for political gains or promoting an individual.

He said Pakistan was created for its people and not for “Ladla”, adding if anyone in a state institutions was fond of politics he should come in political field rather than pushing “Ladla.”
