KP Govt Ask Maulana Fazl To Restrict Movement Citing Threats To His Life

  • 3

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has received a security alert from the Khyber Pakh­tunkhwa (KP) Police, that ‘hostile intelligence agencies’ had planned to target him.

According to a news report published in DAWN, District Police Officer (DPO) issued a letter, advising Maulana Fazl to restrict his movement and avoid unnecessary engagements as ‘hostile intelligence agencies’ had planned to target him.

“I feel my great responsibility to intimate you (Maulana Fazl) for adoption of precautionary measures due to recent threat from terrorists,” the DPO told the JUI-F leader in the letter. The police officer advised the JUI-F chief to keep all his events, plans, programmes, and movements secret.

The newspaper quoted the JUI-F’s provincial spokesman Maulana Abdul Jalil Jan as saying that the government would be responsible if Maulana Sahab was harmed. He said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was issuing threat alerts to Maulana Fazl to create fear and stop him from campaigning against the ruling party.

In the past, the JUI-F chief survived three attempts on his life. In 2014, he narrowly escaped in a suicide attack in Quetta, when the suicide bomber had targeted his bullet-proof vehicle but fortunately Maulana Fazl remained unhurt.
