Is Pakistan heading towards yet another 'Martial Law'?

LAHORE – Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed has said that the Martial Law was imposed in the country whenever Ulema launched a movement.

Addressing a press conference at Railways Headquarters on Saturday, he said that the cases would be decided promptly if democracy was derailed.

“Maulana Fazalur Rahman will not get the power even though all political bigwigs die,” he said. “About 600 people will be in jails if the martial law was imposed in the country. We will have to move cautiously.”

He said that problems will emerge by invading Islamabad. “The doors of the dialogues cannot be closed in democracy,” he added.

The minister said that the politics of the person giving directions to the JUI-F would also ruin. He claimed Maulana Fazalur Rahman will not come to Islamabad.

He said that the JUI-F’s sit-in is on the grey list and face-saving can be granted to Maulana Fazalur Rahman.

Sheikh Rasheed said that the PML-N and the PPP will suffer the biggest loss if damage is caused to democracy. “Shehbaz Sharif is a bigger dacoit than Nawaz Sharif,” he said.
