Maulana Fazlur Rehman announces end to Islamabad sit-in
ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) head Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Wednesday announced that he was ending his protest sit-in which was held in Islamabad for nearly two weeks.
Addressing the participants of the sit-in, Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that his movement would not spread to the rest of Pakistan.
He appealed to people who could not join the Azadi March to join the next stage of his movement.
The JUI-F leader also reiterated his demand for the resignation of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
He said the protesters have become the “axis of the Pakistani politics”.
“The country’s politics is revolving around the movement and the illegitimate rulers in the parliament and their stooges are in a state of fear.
“Democratic norms and supremacy of the Constitution had become dilapidated in the country and had been a target of the dictatorial mindset, but you have defeated [that] mindset and safeguarded the Constitution and democracy in the country,” he told party workers.
