Pakistan News: The Azadi March of Jamiat Ulema-e-Uskan-Fazl (JUI-F) arrived in Lahore on Wednesday where party leader, Maulana Fazal ur Rehman organized a large-scale political gathering in Azadi Chowk.
Fazl ur Rehman said while addressing to his supporters and the participants of the march at the Yateem Khana Chowk, “Pakistanis, from Karachi to Islamabad, are in agreement that Prime Minister Imran Khan should resign. The Prime Minister still has time to respectfully submit his resignation.” Fazl added that the Prime Minister will not be given any more time by the people of Pakistan to submit his resignation.
Fazl said, “People from every section of the society have tied their hopes to the march and it has now transformed into a national movement.” He added that the Azadi March has become the voice of all the oppressed in the country.
He commended the party’s workers for maintaining peace throughout the march. He said, “All of you have proved this to be a tranquil march.”
Fazl ur Rehman also prayed for the rehabilitation of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and former Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, and asked the government to “stop this tragedy.” He said, “This country has no room for any more dramas. We wish to see them released from behind bars and be among the people.”
Earlier today, supporters of JUI-F welcomed the Azadi March in Lahore at Thokar Niaz Baig. Fazl ur Rehman thanked the residents of the city for “welcoming them with an open heart.” He also thanked all political parties and political workers for participating in the march.
“The current rulers have no right to govern.”, Fazl said. He warned the government and said that they should resign before the march arrives in Islamabad.
When the protesters entered Lahore, the Punjab government asked the cellular service providers to stop their services in Punjab in order to prevent Azadi March participants from using social media. Since then, the Internet services in the provincial capital have been partially shut down.
