Swat military offensive has no Parliament backing: JUI-F
Islamabad, June 26 (ANI): The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal (JUI-F) president, Fazl-ur-Rehman has criticized the PPP led government, saying that the ongoing military offensive in Swat and Malakand Divisions has no backing either of the Parliament or the National Security Committee.
Speaking at a program in Jamia Qasmia here, Rehman blamed the US led allied forces for Pakistan's present turbulent situation.
"The foreign forces have created chaotic situation in Pakistan by imposing their war on us," The News quoted Rehman, as saying.
He did not support the Taliban's methodology of using violent means to force the authorities to implement the 'Sharia', but stressed that it was the responsibility of the government to implement the Islamic law as soon as possible.
"The government should fulfill its responsibility toward enforcement of Shariah," Rehman said. (ANI)
