PESHAWAR: Senior NWFP Minister, Bashir Ahmed Bilour expressed surprise over defending the standpoint of government and Taliban in a conference on Terrorism organised by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F) and called this attitude the zenith of hypocrisy.
In a statement released in Peshawar Sunday, the Senior Minister advised JUI-F leadership either to openly oppose or plainly favour the present government on the issues of terrorism and Taliban since the masses do no longer accept the dual policies.
“Protection of mosques and Madaris is the call of every Muslim and Islamic government; however government takes action in the mosques and Madaris where the presence of extremist Taliban or possible terror act is reported.”
Bilour said JUI-F is a part of coalition and if Fazal-ur-Rehman is agreed to the government policies then against whom his party is holding conference.
Bashir Ahmed Bilour ruled out the criticism of JUI-F on the provincial government saying the people are feeling protected due to the brave polices of the ruling party.
“In the ‘absence of government’ how JUI-F could organise such a large scale conference peacefully”, he asked Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman.
