Earlier on October 14, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman had failed to enlist the support of the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) for his upcoming Azadi March.
The JUI-F chief had telephoned JI leader Liaquat Baloch to discuss the anti-government march and sought the latter’s support for the purpose.
Speaking to ARY News, Mr. Baloch had said every political party had its own agenda. The JI had already been engaged in a protest campaign against Indian repression against Kashmiris in India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he had added.
