Addressing the participants of Azadi March on Monday, he said that the people from across the country are participating in Azadi March. “The people are on roads and the cruel government cannot run for long,” he said.
The JUI-F chief said that he thanks all opposition parties for supporting March. “The rulers have complicated the Kashmir issue. They should not shed tears on Kashmir and deceive the Kashmiris,” he said.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the PEMRA had ordered anchor to sit in the channel, which is an attack on the independence of journalism. “People from all walks of life are feeling difficulty. They have become a security risk. We have only approached the masses,” he said.
