Azadi March will now take place on Oct 31: JUI-F chief

ISLAMABAD: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman announced on Wednesday that he was changing the date of his party’s anti-government ‘Azadi march’ to Islamabad from October 27 to October 31.

His party will now organise rallies to express solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmir on Oct 27 – which is being observed as a ‘black day’ by the government over India’s atrocities in the disputed territory.

The JUI-F made the decision during a meeting of its senior leaders presided over by the party chief. The participants of the meeting included Senator Maulana Atta-ur-Rehman, Allama Rashid Soomro, Maulana Saeed Yousaf and Abdullah Khilji.

The participants of the meeting reviewed the arrangements for the party’s long march. The leaders maintained that police were harassing party activists prior to the anti-government movement.

Fazl told party activists and supporters to peacefully march on Islamabad and avoid being part of any negative propaganda.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Fazl said rallies from across the country staged to express solidarity with Kashmiris would converge on the federal capital on Oct 31.
