JUI-F opposes Aurat March, warns of stopping it with ‘baton’


The president of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-F’s Islamabad chapter has voiced opposition to Aurat March held across the country every year on International Women’s Day, on March 8, warning that they would use “baton” to stop it.

“If any attempts are made for obscenity on March 8 in Islamabad, we will condemn it,” warned Abdul Majeed Hazarvi, the chief of JUI-F’s Islamabad wing, while addressing a demonstration held in the capital’s D-Chowk in connection with India’s hijab row.

Hazarvi said that during Aurat March, “obscenity is spread in the name of women’s rights”. He warned the government that if the march was allowed, “we will [use] baton to stop it”.
