Islamabad: Pakistan's Imran Khan government has started taking steps to revoke the recognition of Ansar ul-Islam, the branch of the opposition party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam. In this connection, the Ministry of Home Affairs has sent a note to the Law Ministry to take legal advice. The Law Ministry has been told that the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam has established an extremist organization called Ansar ul-Islam in which the general public is included as activists.
This note states that Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam has announced to launch a freedom march against the Imran Khan government this month. It will reach the capital Islamabad on October 27 of March. Maulana Fazlur Rahman-led Jamiat has announced earlier this month that his party will organize an anti-government 'Azadi March' on October 27. Maulana said that on this date, he would express condolences to the people living in Kashmir and celebrate Black Day.
Let us tell you that Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam is a Sunni Deobandi party and part of the opposition alliance. For the past several months, the coalition had been talking about anti-government protests, but this month Maulana has declared unilateral demonstrations.
