Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said Friday the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is pursuing a non-democratic agenda of destabilising an elected government.

Addressing a news conference along with Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan in Islamabad, he said the opposition parties want to get power through non-democratic means.

Shibli said the opposition leaders did not go to any constitutional forum to register their complaint of any alleged rigging in the last elections but rather resorted to activities aimed at destabilizing the country.

He said the contradictory statements being made by the PDM leaders suggest that their campaign is going to last.

He said the dissenting voices within the JUI-F, including that of Maulana Akhtar Sherani and Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, prove that the party head has been pursuing his vested interests.

Shibli also rejected the notion that PTI was behind the mutiny in the JUI ranks.

He said the people who were showing concerns over Fazl’s politics are the senior members of the JUI and it is their own opinion. He said Fazl was using religion for his politics.

Shibli said instead of responding to the NAB inquiries, Fazl has started threatening the institution and wants to derail the democracy.

Speaking on the occasion, Ali Amin Gandapur said the JUI-F chief has started using threatening language against the institutions when asked to give the answer of his properties.

He said Maulana Fazlur Rehman will have to answer for his assets.

Ali Amin Gandapur said Maulana Sherani has levelled serious allegations against the JUI-F chief and exposed him.

He said instead of answering the valid questions by Maulana Sherani, Maulana Fazlur Rehman expelled him from the party which is non-democratic conduct.
