    Fazlur Rehman should be tried for high treason: PM Imran Khan

    ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said that Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman should be tried for high treason under Article 6 of the Constitution on the basis of recent remarks made by the latter that suggested that he had conspired to de-seat the government.

    The JUI-F chief had last week said that he had ended his Islamabad sit-in late last year after reaching an understanding with power brokers that the PTI-led government would soon be upturned.

    "Maulana Fazlur Rehman should be tried under Article 6 of the Constitution. There should be an inquiry into the remarks he made, and he should be asked who gave him that understanding,' PM Imran was quoted as saying.

    'Cartels control prices'
    The statement came during an informal talk with the media hosted by the prime minister in Islamabad on Friday afternoon.

    During his interaction with the journalists present, the premier talked about inflation, the food shortage crisis and corruption in the country.

    "There is a cartel in the country that controls the prices of commodities," PM Imran reportedly told the people present.

    When he was asked about who controls these cartels and whether some close to him may be involved, the prime minister said: "The report of the inquiry into the wheat shortage crisis does not include the names of Jehangir Tareen or Khushro Bakhtiar."

    Referencing a recent decision of the government to hold off on a demand by the International Monetary Fund to increase electricity tariffs, the premier said that the government could not increase the prices of electricity any further.

    "Negotiations with the IMF on the prices of electricity will soon be finalized," he said.

    'Military agencies know who is doing what'
    The prime minister also took a swipe at opposition politicians during his talk.
    "I am neither corrupt, nor am I in this [politics] to make money," he said. He said that those who are corrupt and have looted the wealth of the country are afraid of the army.

    "Military agencies always know who is doing what," he said.

    Regarding election reforms, the premier told reporters that the government was in the process of introducing electoral reforms, which would include provisions for electronic voting and the biometric verification of voters.

    "Senate elections will not be held under secret ballot anymore," he revealed.

    "We will introduce a law that makes it mandatory to hold Senate elections by a show of hands," the premier added.

    He also commented on the rumours that have been circulating regarding his government soon being shown the door.

    "The opposition talks about the government being toppled only to increase unity within their ranks. They are political mafias and they do not care about inflation, but rather about their own benefit only," the prime minister said.

    ISLAMABAD: Two of the government's ministers late Sunday retorted to Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman's fiery criticism of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

    Addressing a press conference, Murad Saeed and Noor-ul-Haq Qadri — the federal ministers for postal services and religious affairs, respectively — defended PM Imran by saying people should join him in building a "Riyasat-e-Medina," or State of Medina.

    "The love for Medina is in the heart of the prime minister," Qadri said, adding that it was based on the premier's directions that schoolchildren were made to read and understand the teachings of the Quran.

    SAPM expresses disappointment at personal attacks on PM
    The special assistant to PM Imran on information and broadcasting, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, also responded to Fazl, saying she was disappointed that the JUI-F chief issued personal statements against the prime minister.

    "What we have been seeing since this entire week in Islamabad is a theatre," said Dr Awan. She said she was glad that the JUI-F chief had not done anything after his ultimatum had expired.

    A throng of protesters descended upon the federal capital under the Azadi March banner, demanding the premier step down. The caravan that had earlier started off from Sindh travelled through Punjab and set up camp in Islamabad Thursday night.

    48-hour ultimatum
    Opposition leaders had delivered fiery speeches against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government on Friday, giving the prime minister a 48-hour ultimatum to resign.

    Fazl had given PM Imran two days to step down, failing which the protesters would march on to the PM House, "force" him to step down, and "arrest" him.

    The government announced on Saturday that they would approach the courts over Fazl's statements, accusing him of "instigating the people" and rallying them for "mutiny".

    ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly on Friday echoed with a strong reaction from the opposition members to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s remarks that a treason case should be made against Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman for an attempt to “topple” the government.

    The opposition unanimously raised voice against any such move of the government against Maulana Fazl and challenged the government “to do it if it could”.

    Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said it would be unfair with Maulana Fazl and Khawaja Asif if a treason case was made against them. “Here most wanted terrorist Ehsanullah Ehsan escapes but cases are made only against political leadership,” he added.

    He said the government should explain under what charges and reasons treason cases were being made against politicians.

    Khawaja Asif of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) said they [politicians] have no need to get a patriotism certificate from Imran Khan as they have given every sacrifice for the democracy. “Here ex-SSP Karachi Rao Anwar and TTP leader Ehsanullah Eshan move freely while cases are made against politicians. Do not open such paths as they are dangerous,” he added.

    He said the ruler were talking about making of treason cases against him and Maulana Fazl only to divert attention from the unprecedented price hike in the country. “A treason case should be made against them [PTI leaders] who had attacked PTV headquarters,” he added.

    Maulana Asad Mehmood, son of Maulana Fazl, said on the floor of the house that Article 6 of the Constitution should not be applied on the Maulana, but on what he called the selected prime minister. “I challenge you [the prime minister] to make cases against us. We will not do what they [the government] want,” he added.

    At this, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Mohammad Khan said the government had no intention to target anyone, but Maulana Fazlhad to tell the nation who had assured him of ousting the government.
