Nawaz Sharif lends all-out support to Fazlur Rehman as anti-govt march nears
LAHORE - Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif affirmed on Friday that he 'fully supports' Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl's (JUI-F) 'Azadi March' against the government.
The former premier appeared before an accountability court in Lahore Chaudhry Sugar Mills case and in an interaction with newsmen said: Our viewpoint is the same as Maulana's viewpoint.
Sharif went a mile more and recalled that Maulana Fazlur Rehman had called for resignations and protest after the 2018 general elections, adding that they [PML-N] convinced him not to take that course.
اگر دنیا میں عزت کمانی ہے تو پہلے اپنے لوگوں کو عزت دینی ہوگی، ووٹ کو عزت دینی ہوگی۔ ہم کل بھی ڈٹے تھے آج بھی ڈٹے ہیں اور آنیوالے کل کو بھی ڈٹے رہیں گے۔ pic.twitter.com/jftDb7sCCp— Hussain Nawaz Sharif (@Hussain_NSharif) October 11, 2019
"I feel [now] that his argument was solid," he said while referring to the resignation calls of JUI-F chief.
Not paying heed to Maulana's call for the march would be a mistake, he warned and said he has already written a letter to his brother Shahbaz Sharif in this regard.
