Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday welcomed “positive” demands by Pakistani Taliban of making Sharif, Hasan and himself guarantor for holding peace talks with the government.
TTP spokesman Ehsnaullah Ehsan, in a video interview, had said on Saturday that if Pakistan Muslim League–Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif, Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Ameer Syed Munawar Hasan and Fazlur Rehman acted as guarantors for the peace talks, they would be willing to negotiate in the best interest of the country.
The JUI-F chief recommended using the platform of FATA’s grand Jirga for peace negations with the outlaws.
Earlier, speaking to a press conference, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who also heads the National Assembly’s Kashmir committee, said Kashmir was a human and political issue and Pakistan was fighting a war of rules rather than of land.
He said the committee has submitted its recommendations to the government on the Kashmir issue.
