LAHORE: (Ch Mudassar Iqbal):Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has said that no party will support Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F (JUI-F) leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman in his protest against the government.

Addressing a press conference at Railways Headquarters here on Saturday, he said that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) had refused to participate in the JUI-F rally and hoped that Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) would also not to be used in the hands of others.

He alleged that Fazlur Rehman was gathering people on the Namoos-e-Risalat (sanctity of Holy Prophet) issue. He said that he was also supporter of Namoos-e-Risalat (PBUH). “Fazlur Rehman never went to any jail for protecting Namoos-e-Risalat (PBUH), but I remained in prison for the cause and it was me who fought for Namoos-e-Risalat (PBUH) in the assembly,” he added.

Sh Rashid predicted that Maulana Fazlur Rehman would change the protest date and nothing would happen in the capital.
