LAHORE: The Jamaat-i-Islami has asked the Chaudhry brothers to continue the process of consultation on the Punjab Tahaffuz-i-Bunyad-i-Islam (protecting the foundation of Islam) Bill 2020.

A delegation of Jamaat-i-Islami headed by its secretary general Liaquat Baloch called on Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President Chaudhry Shujaat Husain and Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi at their residence here on Thursday.

Liaquat Baloch said Pervaiz Elahi hailed from a family that had a religious background and the process of consultation on this bill should be continued.

Mr Elahi said the process for consultation with ulema of all schools of thought would continue and this bill would promote love and unity.

The Speaker has been listening to the concerns of clerics from different schools of thought regarding the passage of the Punjab Tahaffuz-i-Bunyad-i-Islam Bill.

Earlier,Shia Ulema Council’s Allama Arif Wahidi called on Mr Elahi and expressed concern on the Bill.

PML-N: PML-N Punjab information secretary Azma Bukhari has said the month of August will be the month of independence for the Pakistani nation from an incompetent person.

“Nawaz Sharif tried to make Pakistan a true Pakistan of Quaid and Iqbal. Kalbhushan confessed to carrying out terrorist attacks in Pakistan in front of the whole world, but today the so-called patriotic PM Imran Khan is looking for a way out for Kulbhushan,” she said in a statement issued here on Thursday.

“Fake dramas in the name of accountability are being practiced in Naya Pakistan. It has caused irreparable damage to the country. Those who chanted the slogan of Ehsaas have sealed the NRO,” she said, adding more than a dozen NROs had been given in New Pakistan. “Jehangir Tareen, Aleema Khan, Zulfi Bukhari, Khusro Bakhtiar are the biggest benefactors of NRO,” she alleged.
