Dr. Firdous urges JUI-F Chief to uphold democratic and constitutional norms


Islamabad, Nov 08 (TNS): Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan has urged Chief of JUI (F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman to uphold democratic and constitutional norms.

In a series of tweets on Friday, she said making hue and cry over the election rigging after one year is nothing but to hoodwink the masses and weaken the democratic system.

She said if the elections were rigged then why did Maulana Fazlur Rehman contest the presidential elections and his son took oath as member of National Assembly?

She said dialogue is part of democratic process of which Maulana Fazlur Rehman has been the firm supporter. She questioned as to why Maulana wants to keep the windows of his mind shut by declaring the talks meaningless.

The Special Assistant asked Maulana Fazlur Rehman to shun intransigence and have mercy on his workers facing severe weather conditions. She said Maulana Fazlur Rehman should not avenge his defeat in the elections by causing mental agony to the people.
