SUKKUR: Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam (JUI-F) chief, Maulana Fazalur Rehman has said that international exploitative forces are hatching conspiracies against Islam and claimed JUI-F alone is resisting them.

Speaking to media on his arrival at Sukkur airport on Sunday, he said that Pakistan was created in the name of Islam and his party would encounter anti-Islam forces.

He also termed madrassas as fortresses of Islam and vowed to foil conspiracies against them.

The JUI-F chief later addressed a large gathering of supporters at an 'Islam Zindabad' rally in Sukkur.

During the gathering, while condemning the attack on Malala Yousufzai, he said that some people were trying to use the issue for political mileage.

He also said that the people who are asking the Ulema to denounce the attack on Malala, should first condemn the attacks on religious seminaries.
