ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s religious parties on Wednesday reacting belligerently threatened a movement against the announcement made by Islamabad on the resumptions of Nato supply routes, after the US offered an apology for the Salala checkpost incident, DawnNews reported.

Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (F) chief Maulana Fazalur Rehman said that only the parliament has the authority to resume the blocked Nato supply as it was the parliaments decision only to block the Nato supply routes in the first place.

He added that neither the President nor the Prime Minister had sole authority on the issue.

Leaders of the Defence of Pakistan Council (DPC) claimed that the resumption of Nato supplies was against  the interests of Islam and Pakistan.

Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Ameer Syed Munawar Hasan said in a statement that it is a folly to reinforce ones enemies and that the nation would never forgive the decision.

The DPC stood firm in its resolve against the supply resumption and would oppose at all costs, any move in this regards, he added.

Senator Mushahidullah Khan of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz said that if the resumption of Nato supplies contradicts the parliamentary resolution on the issue then the decision would not be accepted by any one.

Former spy chief of Pakistan General (r) Hamid Gul termed the resumption of supplies as a conspiracy saying the the US wants establish bases along the transit route in order to impose India.

He further added that the resumption would result in the establishment of Indian supremacy in the region.

Moreover, the Sunni Ittehad Council said in a statement that the Nato supply routes should remain shut and that any move in the parliament that renders the Inter-Services Intelligence agency ineffective would be strongly opposed. The SIC further said that the United Nations should be approached over the issue of drone strikes.
