DERA GHAZI KHAN: The JUI-F chief, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, has called for tackling terrorism through political means.

Addressing an election rally in Taunsa Sharif, some 85km from here, on Wednesday, he said the JUI-F was against the use of force against terrorists.

He blamed wrong polices of retired General Pervez Musharraf for the current wave of terror acts in the country.

The Maulana claimed that Gen Musharraf created an anti-Pakistan faction in Afghanistan by extending support to another, while “we organised an inter-tribe grand jirga against terrorism”.

He said his party presented a bill in the National Assembly against terrorism and mustered support of all parties, but it could not be passed.

The JUI-F chief said the country was passing through a difficult time, but things could still be set right by giving rights to people.

It was the first public meeting addressed by a party head in this region.
