ISLAMABAD: Chief Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman has warned that dialogue with Taliban has become sensitive matter.

He expressed these views while talking to media during his visit to National Press Club (NPC) here on Tuesday.

JUI-F chief urged legislation for all sections of society, adding country has been passing through international pressure for the last two decades that has created law & order situation and everyone is insecure here, he added. “If power would be used than it will be considered as misfortune of country,” Maulana added.

While appreciating newly elected members of NPC, JUI-F chief said that media can play a leading role in progress of country.

Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman said that parliamentary attitude has been changed in last five years and he is trying to change attitude of government now.

He urged government to take steps for law & order situation, economy, inflation, trade deficit and restore decreasing value of rupee.

Fazl reaffirmed his stance that Pakistan does not want confrontation with any country in the world but will not compromise over dignity and sovereignty of the country.

Talking about national politics, JUI-F chief said that difference of opinion is the beauty of democracy but extremism has no place in the society, he clarified.

Responding to a question, Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman said that Musharraf issue has hijacked the media and media should focus on other issues as matter is in court and court has to deal it.

“Decision of Musharraf’s stay here or go abroad will be made by anyone else,” disclosed Maulana.

Talking about NATO supplies and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government, situation in province has become more dangerous as compared to situation before elections.

Non government organizations are running KP province, adding he alleged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) that it is receiving dollars to closure of NATO supplies.

Responding to another query, he said that Gilgit-Baltistan and Jammu & Kashmir are disputed areas and this problem should be settled according to wishes of natives.
