Pakistani Opposition Leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman Criticizes Government, Cites India’s Ascent and Pakistan’s Economic Struggles

A recent comment from Pakistani opposition leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman is grabbing global attention. During a speech in the National Assembly, he discussed the neighboring country, India, aiming to become a superpower while his home country, Pakistan, is heading towards bankruptcy.

He is from the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) party.

The Chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Pakistan stated,

“In August 1947, India and Pakistan got Independence together. Today, India is dreaming of becoming a global superpower, while we are begging to avoid bankruptcy. Who is responsible for this?” 

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has given Pakistan a $3 billion bailout funding package. The agency has now agreed to disburse its final tranche, while Islamabad is looking to seek more funds from the IMF.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Pakistan’s leading right-wing Islamic leader, also targeted the recently held general elections, stating, “The establishment and bureaucracy had no role” in the elections and in running the country.

He further added,

“Leave this power. Come and sit here [on the opposition benches], and if the PTI is indeed the larger group, then give them the government, the establishment and bureaucracy had no role in achieving this country. What kind of election is this where the losers are not satisfied, and the winners are upset?” 

Rehman also aimed at the failure to implement principles from the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII), which focuses more on Islamic principles.

“We got the country in the name of Islam, but today we have become a secular state. Since 1973, not a single recommendation of the CII has been implemented. How can we be an Islamic country?”

The JUI-F is the arch-rival of PTI and targets the central government, i.e., Imran Khan. After his downfall, JUI-F became part of the coalition government.
