PESHAWAR: The minister of information for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Shaukat Yousafzai, on Sunday warned the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief against challenging the government’s writ, referring to Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s plan to hold the Azadi March in Islamabad on October 31.
Speaking at a press conference, Yousafzai said Fazl was running a baseless campaign against the incumbent government and warned that action would be taken against the JUI-F chief’s illegal steps.
He has threatened that FIR’s will be registered against the JUI-F workers who are being prepared as volunteers for the Azadi March,
“We will not let anyone bring stick-wielding people to the streets,” he said.
The information minister said everyone had the right to protest but the government would not allow what he termed was bloodshed on the roads in the name of demonstrations.
