Interior Minister Ijaz Shah on Thursday said the Jamiat-Ulem-i-Islam-F will have to abide by the court verdicts with regard to sit-in. Speaking at a press conference , the minister alluded to judgments of Supreme Court judge Qazi Faez Isa and the Islamabad High Court.
He said the maulana is allowed to march but he should respect the court decisions too.
Ijaz Shah said the prim minister decided not to prevent the JUI-F from taking out march since he himself is a politician. He conceded that political statements issued by both government and the opposition made the atmosphere tense.
Holding a list of 7,000 names of people who she claimed “connect Pakistan to the world”, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan on Thursday reminded the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (Fazl) protesters that Islamabad, besides being the seat of the government, was also home to a large community of expatriates and residents whose security was the responsibility of the state.
