ISLAMABAD: A protest sit-in being staged by Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s JUI-F and his allies in Islamabad entered its second day on Saturday.

According to JUI-F, Rehbar Committee representing several opposition parties will meet today to chalk out its future strategy after Maulana Fazlur Rehman gave the government 48-hour ultimatum for Imran Khan’s resignation.

Addressing the gathering on Friday, Maulana Fazlur Rehman called for PM Khan to step down in two days “or else we will be forced to think of another strategy”.

“We will not be able to exercise any patience after that point,” he warned.

He said that the world should take this gathering seriously. “We want justice […] we want a system based on justice in the country,” he said.

The JUI-F chief went on to say that the incumbent government has left the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir alone but the people of Kashmir would fight for their independence and for their right to self-determination. “We will not allow them to play with the emotions of the people,” the JUI-F chief said.

He added that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government vowed to give employment and houses to millions of people but instead they have demolished houses of five million people.

The PTI leaders, on the other hand, said that Imran Khan’s resignation out of question.
