Though, one can support military courts in view of the increasing terror incidents and foul plays, he told media after attending the meeting of Ulema belonging to Wafaqul Madaris.

He was of the view that harassment of religious circles had again started in the name of registration of seminaries.

The JUI-F chief said propaganda against the religion was international agenda.

He recalled that registration of seminaries was banned until 2004 whereas Ulema still had their commitment intact with the government regarding financing and operations of seminaries.

“Religious seminaries are not involved in any terrorist activity, he maintained, adding that Ulema were working in the parameter of law.

To a question, he said the participation of the army chief in Parliamentary Leaders conference in Islamabad on Wednesday was not unusual.
