SUKKUR: Chief of the Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said that acquittal of Aasia Bibi indicates that the country has still not got freedom.
Speaking at a public meeting on Sunday, he said the decision was imposed to please western countries.
He alleged that the current rulers were servants of the United States and Europe, instead of the people of Pakistan, but “we will not allow them to make Pakistan an American colony at any cost”.
He condemned the arrest of Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan activists.
Maulana Asadullah Bhutto of the Jamaat-i-Islami, Allama Nazir Abbas Naqvi of the Shia Ulema Council, Awais Noorani of Jamiat Ulema-i-Pakistan, Rashid Mehmood Soomro and others also spoke on the occasion.
