Sh Rashid questions Fazl’s commitment to Kashmir issue
Federal Minister for Interior Sheikh Rashid has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan will complete five-year term in office, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference at Karachi’s Marriot Hotel on Friday, he said he would not reply to the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leaders’ scathing remarks against him.
Rashid said that it was the PML-N, which had introduced amendments to the oath of the finality of prophethood, and it was Maulana Fazlur Rehman who had supported it.
He claimed nobody was better informed on Kashmir issue than him.
Rashid reminded that it was PM Imran who had raised voice for Kashmiris at the United Nations and called Modi a tyrant and Hitler.
“What did Fazl do for the Kashmir cause?” he questioned.
He said he had predicted in the past that the opposition parties would contest Senate elections.
“We had decided not to create any hindrance in their way,” he said, and added, “The low turn-out at their gathering outside the Election Commission of Pakistan’s office on January 19th is a prelude to their flop shows in future.”
Minister for interior said he had already advised Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz to get knowledge about the Broadsheet issue.
Rashid slammed the opposition leaders for maligning Pakistan Army in their speeches. “Come what may, you are not going to come to power,” he told the PDM leaders clearly.
He said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and other parties would not always get the judge of their liking as head of a probe committee.
“Justice Qayyum will not always be heading any inquiry committee,” the minister said and added the reason for appointing Justice (r) Sheikh Azmat Saeed as head of inquiry committee on Broadsheet was that he was familiar with the contents of volume 10 of the Panama leaks verdict.
He made it clear that he respected Ulema of all sects.
