ISLAMABAD – Jamiat-i-Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Moulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday disclosed that some American senators in their joint letter to Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry have expressed concern over the way Ahmadis are being treated in the country.
Rehman, who is also chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir, said this while speaking at a reference organized by the Federal Union of Journalists (Dastoor Group) in memory of renowned scholar and journalist Aga Shorish Kashmiri on his 42nd death anniversary.
The function, presided over by Leader of the House in Senate Raja Zafarul Haq, was also addressed by politicians, scholars and senior journalists.
Expressing serious concern over the meddling of US senators in the internal affairs of the country, the JUI-F chief said that the whole nation was in a state of shock over the move adding that the Western powers also tried to pressurise Pakistan in the past either on the finality of the Prophethood (PBUH) or the laws relating to the blasphemy of Holy Prophet (PBUH) and other revered personalities.
Zafarul Haq said that the issues related to some changes in the declaration form for candidates relating to finality of the Prophethood (PBUH) were resolved and the remaining irritants would be managed in the upcoming session of the National Assembly.
Haq also headed a committee which probed the changes relating to the finality of Prophethood (PBUH) in the declaration form and the committee has already submitted its report to former premier Nawaz Sharif.
