ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan hoped that Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s Azadi march will proceed peacefully.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, the Special Assistant advised Maulana Fazl not to weaken his relationship with Pakistan through negative politics.
Firdous Ashiq Awan said: “Islamabad is not only Pakistan’s capital but also the abode of the diplomatic corps and expatriates and it is the responsibility of the government and state to ensure their security.”
“We want to give a message to Maulana [Fazlur Rehman] that they [diplomats and expatriates] are 7,000 people and these names connect Pakistan to the world.
“I am therefore hopeful that Fazlur Rehman-led march will proceed peacefully and the commitments they [the JUI-F] have made will be upheld and they will not endanger the stability of the country,” she said.
