PM Shehbaz Proposes Committee for Political Dialogue in Meeting with Fazal ur Rehman

Islamabad: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif visited the residence of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazal ur Rehman on Thursday, proposing the formation of a committee to facilitate mutual cooperation and address various political issues collaboratively.

According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), the JUI-F chief warmly welcomed the premier. During the visit, Prime Minister Shehbaz inquired about Maulana Fazal ur Rehman’s well-being and commended his ongoing efforts to promote a peaceful struggle for the protection of democratic values. The prime minister also praised Rehman for his significant religious contributions.

The visit takes place amid ongoing discussions about political negotiations in the country, with the opposition party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) already expressing its willingness for dialogue.

On May 19, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazal ur Rehman confirmed seeking guarantees from the PTI before considering joining the latter’s opposition alliance, the Tehreek Tahafuz Aain-e-Pakistan (TTAP). In a joint press conference with PTI leaders following a meeting in Islamabad, the JUI-F chief stated that his party had not yet decided to join the opposition alliance but acknowledged ongoing efforts to persuade it to do so.

When asked by a journalist if the JUI-F had sought any guarantees from the PTI before initiating an anti-government movement, Rehman confirmed this, emphasizing the necessity of certain measures to build trust during serious negotiations. He further questioned who would lead the talks, asking if the prime minister, the president, or the army chief would be conducting the negotiations.
