QUETTA, Jan 2: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-F leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said it is not clear on whose agenda Dr Tahirul Qadri is working and urged state organs to clarify their positions in this regard.

Commenting on the slogan of “save the state, not politics” raised by the Tehrik-i-Minhajul Quran chief, he said that state without politics was a flawed concept.

In the past martial law had been imposed on the pretext of saving the state, the Maulana said while talking to journalists at the airport here on Wednesday after arriving from Islamabad.

He said a campaign had been launched to strengthen anti-democratic forces and urged the political parties to unite against the elements who wanted to foment unrest in the country.

The JUI-F chief said his party would not support any move to derail democracy.

He said the Constitution should be followed to resolve the crises and election should be held as per the constitutional guidelines.

Mr Rehman rejected any extra-constitutional experiment to resolve political issues. He said Sufi Muhammad had been sent to prison because he had refused to recognise the Constitution and if anyone else did so, he too should meet the same fate.
