QUETTA: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (Fazl) chairman and the chairman of the Special Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, said here on Wednesday that Pakistan could not afford a clash of institutions due to the critical conditions prevailing in the country, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to media representatives at the Quetta airport, he declared the recent statements issued by Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani and Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry as promising.

He further said that the truth had been understood 65 years into the inception of the country, adding that, if work had been done with the same passion right after the creation of Pakistan, the conditions would have been different today.

He declared the parliament as supreme and said if every institution worked within its constitutional limits, no problems would arise.

Rehman also said that the elections would take place on time, adding that, the conditions in Quetta and Karachi would not affect the process.

When asked about the US presidential elections, Rehman said whether it was Obama who got elected or whether it was Romney, the result would not have any effect on Pakistan as their policies pertaining to the country were similar.
