Sindh govt asks JUI-F to provide routes, security plan for Azadi March


Provincial Minister Nasir Hussain Shah on the behalf of Sindh government on Monday asked Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) for the details of facilities that will be required during Azadi March.
According to sources, Nasir Hussain Shah has contacted JUI-F and asked to provide routes and security plan of the anti-government protest.
While confirming the conversation between provincial government and his party, senior leader Allama Rashid Soomro told that a joint meeting of Sindh government representatives and JUI-F leaders will soon be held.
On the other hand, Sindh Governor said that he will take every possible step to stop school children from participating in the Azadi march.
JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman had decided to lead Azadi March from Sukkur on October 27.
The campaign will be started from Sindh as Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman can be arrested from Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan due to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) provincial governments which might affect the march at the beginning.
It was further learnt the Sindh government will help Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman’s Azadi March by providing facilities and the protest will gain momentum by the time it enters Punjab.
The sources have informed that the JUI-F chief does not intend for a prolonged sit-in in the federal capital. Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman said he does not want 126-day long protest like Prime Minister Imran Khan did.
Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman said he will announce the next plan of action himself after reaching Islamabad. The protests will be staged nationwide if Azadi March is stopped, he stressed.—INP
