JUI-F chief won’t be able to exploit ‘religious card’: Imran Khan

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman would not be able to use  “religious card” against the government at the instruction of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N). He manifested no fear of the JUI-F’s call for Islamabad lock down on 27th October while talking to a selected group of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf leaders. .

According to a close aide to the PM, Khan was of the view that PPP and PML-N are indirectly taking part in the lock down programme because if it failed they would not be blamed, but the JUI-F.
