ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday, while terming Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Kahn a “western agent,” claimed that Khan wants to destroy our society by injecting his ‘western thoughts’ in it, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to a conference organised by Jamiat Tulba-i-Islam, the student wing of the JUI-F, Fazl declared the “peace march” by the PTI as ‘frivolous.’

Meanwhile, PTI chief Imran Khan addressed crowds gathered in Tank after being disallowed by the authorities from entering into South Waziristan.

The PTI leadership decided to hold a public meeting in “Jahaz Ground” in Tank instead of KotKai, reporter, Sajjad Haider, who was travelling with the convoy quoted the PTI official sources as stating.

Commenting on Rehman’s criticism, Khan said that he wanted to end the speech a little earlier but a ‘Maulana’ (Maulana Fazlur Rehman) was stuck in his head. Some people in the crowd shouted ‘diesel… diesel”. Referring to Fazlur Rehman’s constituency in D.I. Khan, the PTI chairman said “when we were young there were some people who neither played nor let anyone else played… If you don’t want to serve the people at least let us serve them.”

The PTI was carrying out a peaceful convoy of party supporters, human rights activists and national and international media representatives to Waziristan against US drone attacks in the region bordering Afghanistan.
