Rasheed warns Fazl of paying the price of anarchy

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed on Wednesday warned Pakistan Democratic Movement Chief (PDM) Maulana Fazlur Rehman, that he would “pay the price” if the joint Opposition’s movement to overthrow Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan puts the country into anarchic situation. 

“[The] Opposition should fear lest this no-confidence motion pushes country towards destabilization,” Rasheed said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.

Taking a jibe at Fazl, Rasheed asked what kind of remarks was he passing about the “batons dipped in oil” being a religious scholar.

“What would be it effects? Are you taking the country towards anarchy?” he asked. He also said that all of Fazl’s political allies will run away while he will be caught.

“The history of all these people [Opposition leaders] is that they play together. It is the tradition of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) that they put one hand on the sky and their feet on the ground,” he said.

The minister said that Fazl also used to play politics in the same way, but it’s the first time he has become furious and playing the role of “maula jutt”.

“It’s a shame. You have huge respect as a religious leader but the language you are using does not fall in line with the principles of Islam.”

“If it causes civil war and anarchy in the country, you will have to pay for it.”

Moreover, Rasheed said that all members of Parliament will be protected ahead of the voting on the no-confidence motion.

He said that he will ask the National Assembly speaker about which day among March 28, 29 and 30 he would finalise on the vote of no-confidence, which is due to be held after March 27 as per the rules.
