Sharif brother’s ineligibility to derail democracy: Fazl

Sharif brother’s ineligibility to derail democracy: Fazl BANNU: Head of Jamiat Ulma-e-Islam (F) Maulana Fazl ur Rehman said on Friday Supreme Court verdict to disqualify Sharif brothers from contesting polls will strengthen hands of anti-democratic forces in Pakistan and hinted it will destabilize democracy.

He told a press conference here and added the aftermath of SC ruling will increase tension in Punjab.

He revealed his contacts with Awami National Party (ANP)’s head Asfandyar Wali and Sharif brothers would be fruitful in finding a peaceful solution of the prevailing political turmoil.

Defending President Zardari’s version over SC judgment, he said President Zardari termed SC verdict as court’s ruling instead of his conspiracy while due to constitutional requirement, President was forced to impose Governor-rule in Punjab.

Fazl called for establishing independent judiciary and urged to dismiss those judges who took oath under Provisional Constitutional Ordinance (PCO).

He accused US of netting conspiracies against Pakistan.
