JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. – File Photo

ISLAMABAD: Maulana Fazlur Rehman said on Friday that attack on Malala Yousufzai was the result of wrong policies of the government, DawnNews reported.

He said that people were protesting against the attack on Malala just because it was a pro-American stance.

Fazl said that politicians who were urging the condemnation on the attack on a 14-year old girl have disturbed the peace of Karachi.

He repeated the popular slogan “How long will people be slave of the United States?”

Fazlur Rehman said that Ulemas have condemned the attack on Malala but who will condemn the attack on the mosques. He said that the attack was a brutal act but not everyone is condemning it out of sympathy with the girl.

He urged the government to correct its policies and stop suporting the’ US stance’.

America wants Pakistani children to be free of polio, that's why we do vaccinations. American wants Pakistani children to be educated, that's why we support schools. America isn't interested in making slaves of Pakistanis (or of anyone else, really), America is not the enemy of Pakistan and never has been. The Taliban is lying, they recognize that education is their enemy, but they try to convince everyone that the enemy is America - but the REAL enemy, both yours and ours, is the Taliban.

Do you have any shame Maulana? I didn't hear you condemning. You sound more like a Taliban's spokesperson. You know what they say if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

Malala Yousaf Zai , 14 years old social activist was writing for BBC against swat cruel people , and promoting girl's education , thats why Americans as well as other countries shows sympathy on this incident ..... Maulana Fazl's statement might be correct to some extent !
October 13, 2012 4:10 am
So what are you saying Maulana? Are you justifying or condemning the attack? Do you stand for women's right to education or not? Is it possible to get a clear answer or you are afraid too ?? The 14 year old was not afraid of anyone, thanks to her millions of children in Pakistan are Malala today...... .

Maulana Fazlur Rehman Please don't turn the page, you should pray for Malala yousefzai for quick recovery and may allah give his family a peace of mind, as we all know she is in critical condition. US has nothing to do, she was a daughter of PAKISTAN, she has a leader quality, and she did incourage other student to study, and be some body. Whole world is crying and praying for her and USA , europe , middle east , all are ready to help. Even President obama offer all kind of help... She is more famous than you and she is only 14yrs old. Your duty (FARAZ) is to pray for her she is like your grand daughter.....Dont talk negative about USA, you should help the government and get rid of TERRORIST. I hope you understand what I am talking about. "Please keep politics OUT" Sincerely, Ash Mirza (USA)

As long as these unscrupulous mullahs remain in our country and have a following, we will not be able to root out religious extremism and "tyranny in the name of religion" from our country. Fazlur Rehman is a person not worthy of being spoken about. He and mullahs like him use, misue and abuse religion as they please.These people are shameless and have no fear of God. They will continue winning elections if we don't expose their corrupt ways to the masses and especially to the people in areas where they draw support from. I appeal to all media companies to help this cause since they are poised to do this job in the most effective manner.
October 12, 2012 9:44 pm
It is not clear whether Maulana Fazal Ur Rehman oppose or support the taliban attack on 14 years old girl. Can he be more specific please. The people of Pakistan wants to know whether he stands with people of Pakistan or with Taliban. He should not confuse the issue by mincing words.

Would Mr. Fazl ur Rehman like to elaborate how he regards the protest against the shooting of a young girl as a pro US stance. Are the people of Pakistan now not not even be allowed to protest when their own children are the target of brutality. As regards to the Ulema condemning it one only needs to have a look at the orchestrated protests on the streets when it suits the religious lobby and the verbal condemnation we saw in response to the shooting of this young girl. The pronouncement of the alleged Ulema like many before cannot be regarded as 'Islam' for neither are they the sole voice claiming to be of Islam nor the sole interpreters of Islam. They like other politicians are affected by power and one can only but speculate whether the alleged Ulema would have made any pronouncements had the public sentiment not been so powerful. History might enlighten us more as regards to the motives and actions of this lobby.

War has been going on for some time between religous people and non religous. Or you can say true follower of Islam and those who do not follow Islam, but consider them Muslim. I called them pro-western.

Some one should tell me the reason of this attack. Why Taliban wanted to kill her.? I never heard about Malala prior to this. Why she was the target.?
October 13, 2012 12:13 am
What is your stance on this issue, please do not confuse us with your strange philosophy. An innocent girl has been attacked by religious fanatics, and that act is being condemned , where from anti US sentiments come in , you are realy strange Mr. Fazalurehman, you are strange.

October 12, 2012 4:55 pm
Forget US or Pak. think about the little girl who is suffering .. When will all these innocent killings end?
October 12, 2012 5:42 pm
He is just not making any sense. He knows his sympathizing with the Taliban is coming round to haunt him. Maulana, your days as a politician are numbered too. At least show some sympathy for the little girl on your way out.
October 12, 2012 5:42 pm
Not once Fazlur Rehman or Ulemas have condemned the attack on Malala because Malala is not their own daughter, that's why he feel no pain and now they are making excuses and best excuses is America, shame on you all.

Where were the politicians of Karachi as well as Dera when hundreds of girls like Malala were butchered in Lal Masjid.

Maulana Diesel, as you haven't condemned the attack on three minor girls you don't have any right to comment on the issue." If pakistan has leaders like you the country doesn't need an enemy " .
