KARACHI: In the context of political scenario of region and its possible impacts on Pakistan, particularly in the current political instability of the country, newly elected Information Secretary Jamiat Ulema-e- Pakistan- Fazal (JUI-F) Hafiz Hussain Ahmed rejected the demand of carving a new province in Sindh.

While addressing a press conference on Saturday at Karachi Press Club (KPC), Ahmed praised the role played by Sufis, Hur clan, and other Sindhi leaders against British occupation, adding, the province had a significant contribution in making Pakistan.

He said that Sindh is the gateway of Islam and Karachi is integral part of it. “The demands of separation on ethnic basis would result in further polarization in the society which is ultimately not in the interest of country, in wake of ISIS and its emerging influence in the region,” he added.

He was on opinion that the situation in the region, particularly in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria, was rapidly changing and all political parties must collaborate in order to avoid any future conflict.

Unveiling JUI-F stance over sit-ins and rigging in elections, he said that all parties have reservations and concerns including JUI-F but all parties must work in collaboration to tackle challenges.

He also urged the political parties to safeguard the democracy and refrain from biased criticism on one another. Moreover, he said that JUI-F rejects all forms of discrimination, ethnicity, and biasness in politics at national level.
