QUETTA: Jamiat Ulema Islam-F secretary general Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidri has held the ANP-led coalition government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the US agency CIA responsible for the attack on a rally to be addressed by JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. Addressing a rally outside the press club here on Wednesday, he said the JUI-F would hold protest demonstrations across the country on Friday to condemn the suicide attack.

He claimed that the recent drone attack in which innocent people were killed in tribal areas was carried out with the consent of the government.

Maulana Haidri said the government had given a free hand to the CIA and Blackwater to target political forces opposing the drone attacks.

He said the Swabi suicide attack was an attempt to kill Maulana Fazl because he was exposing the American designs against the country.

He said that such attacks would not force the JUI-F to abandon its struggle against imperialistic policies of the United States.

The JUI-F leader asked the government to stop US drone attacks and unlawful activities of the CIA and Blackwater in the country.
