Fazl feels martial law-like suffocation in country

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday said that PTI-led government failed to tolerate criticism and launched attack on freedom of press.

Talking to media on Tuesday evening, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl said that there is a martial law-like suffocation in the country.

“Government is not tolerating criticism on the basis of narrow-mindedness and it cannot give freedom to the press. The government is attacking on freedom of press by closing down transmission of 24News TV channel,” said Fazl.

He expressed solidarity with the media and warned that government could initiate such steps against the rest of the media. He said that all the media houses should unite and stand firm against the government.
