Army should stop interfering or there will be no unity in Pakistan: Fazlur Rehman

Islamabad [Pakistan], October 21: Jamiat Ulema-e Islam (F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Wednesday issued a warning to Pakistan Army asking it to stop interfering in civilian matters of the government and police or there will be no unity in the country.
Rehman told reporters that the recent Karachi incident proves the strict control of the Army on everything in Pakistan.
“The army has control over the whole country. In every tehsil, there is a major setting, in every district, there is a colonel. In every apex body in the country, there is an army officer and in front of them, these commissioners, DIGs look helpless,” he said.
“Yesterday’s incident has proved the strict control of the Army. Pakistan Army should vacate all tehsils, districts, towns, and divisions and stop interfering in civilian matters of governments and police or else there will be no unity in the country,” he added.
Rehman remarks come a day after almost all police officers in Sindh police applied for leave in protest against the humiliation meted out to the Sindh IGP Mushtaq Mehr, during the PML-N leader Safdar Awan’s arrest saga, The News International reported.
PML-N leader and spokesman for Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz’s and former Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair said that the IGP Sindh was “kidnapped” by Rangers who forced him to file an FIR for Safdar’s arrest.
