ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has stated that he will take Maulana Fazlur Rehman to court for calling him an agent of the Jews, DawnNews reported.

Speaking at a press conference in Islamabad, he said that Maulana Fazlur Rehman should tell the people as to who secretly met with the US Amabassador and expressed his wish to become the prime minister.

Imran Khan said that a legal notice will soon be sent to the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief.

The JUI-F chief has made statements in the past attacking Imran Khan. Tensions between the two political leaders reached a new level after the May 11 General Elections.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman had denounced the PTI win in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and stated that the polls were rigged.

He also said that he did not accept the PTI's mandate in the province.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman has also called Imran Khan a “western agent” and claimed that Khan wants to destroy Pakistani society by injecting his ‘western thoughts’ in it,

Imran Khan on the other hand has also returned criticism at the JUI-F chief stating that Fazlur Rehman had been using religion for political gains.

The PTI chief has also said that people like his JUI-F counterpart have given Islam a bad name.
