Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif condemned on Friday the government’s plans to file a treason case against Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
The development comes hours after Prime Minister Imran Khan
revealed to a group of journalists that the government was going to file a case
against Fazl under Article 6 of the Constitution of Pakistan.
The JUI-F chief had admitted to having an agenda behind
unseating the government, the premier said, which was tantamount to conspiring
against the state.
In his statement to the media, Shehbaz said the prime
minister should look at himself in the mirror before issuing statements.
“The drawback of accidental leaders is that they are oblivious
to the history,” the PML-N leader said. “Maulana Fazlur Rehman is the
son of that great figure who made the Constitution of Pakistan.”
The statement by PM Khan during the visit of the Turkish
president is “condemnable” and “regretful”, Shehbaz added.
