Moulana Samiul Huq asassination: Foreign elements links suspected

ISLAMABAD - Foreign elements are suspected in the murder of JUI S chief Maulana Samiul Haq.

Martyrdom of Maulana was not an internal issue rather Indians, Afghans and other elements are involved in this act,” said a statement issued by JUI-S.

Maulana Samiul Haq was stabbed to death at his residence in Rawalpindi on November 2.

The party’s official statement further noted, in a bid to hide their incompetence, some people were issuing differing accounts, dubbing it a domestic dispute to sectarian issue, as the motive behind the murder of JUI-S leader.

Appealing to security agencies to arrest the real killers of Maulana, the religious party demanded to award exemplary punishment to the culprits.

Highlighting the key role played by slain leader in mediation between Taliban and other groups including Afghan government, the statement said, a delegation of Afghan government had requested Maulana Samiul Haq in October to facilitate talks with Taliban.

“They started propaganda against him and Darul Uloom Haqqania when they failed to persuade him to play the desired role”, it alleged.
