JUI-F chief says don’t trust dictator-created NAB

MULTAN: Jamiat Ulema-e Islam (F) chief Fazl-ur-Rehman has said that he does not trust the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as it was formed during the tenure of a military dictator.

“The bureau was formed to avenge politicians,” he said while talking to the media. “NAB should instead be left to work independently.” About Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution, he said that laws are not wrong but it was their use that had created a controversy.

The JUI-F chief spoke about his party’s terms with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), saying that the two parties were allies and JUI-F would support Nawaz Sharif’s wife Kalsoom Nawaz in NA-120 by-elections.

About Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), he said that the party had no future. “They tried to bring western ways in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, but were rejected,” he maintained.

Speaking about the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), the JUI-F chief said that they were neither against a separate province for the tribes-people, nor did they oppose reforms in the region. “We want the issue [of FATA] to be mulled in political and social circles so that if there are any negatives aspects of the matter, they should come to the fore,” he said.
