Jamiat Ulema Islam (JUI) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has said calling former prime minister Imran Khan a Jewish agent was a political statement.

“Calling a Jewish agent is not an insult, but a term of protest,” he said in an informal talk to the media in Multan.

He added: “For a decade, [PTI founder and] we have been political rivals. I should have been asked why I was calling him a Jewish agent. It was a political statement calling.

Asked about the possibility of meeting the PTI founder, he replied he would not refuse talks’

“We are political people. we will not refuse negotiations. If an atmosphere of negotiation is created, they will be encouraged.”

He clarified that he had no personal grudge with the PTI. 

The JUI chief declared that they have not compromised on their position regarding the recent general elections.  

“The elections are unfair due to massive rigging in Feb 8 polls.”

Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the seats were sold and purchased in the recent elections.

He demanded a re-election, emphasizing that the establishment should remain uninvolved.

The JUI-F chief criticized the current government's performance, attributing it to a lack of majority power. He noted that while the PML-N is in control, the PPP is not part of the government.

Addressing questions about property leaks, Maulana Fazlur Rehman clarified, “His name had never been mentioned since the beginning.”

He emphasized the need to end the dependency on the establishment for political movements and elections.

“We must overcome this mindset that we cannot run any movement or contest elections without the establishment's support.

 If the nation doesn’t stand up for their right to vote, we will face more oppression,” he said.

 Highlighting public dissatisfaction, he stated, “If a public department becomes our ruler, how can we accept it?

"Our party has organized three gatherings, and you will witness a strong public reaction on June 1.”

He claimed that there is effectively no government at present. When asked about his potential role in future reconciliations, Maulana Fazlur Rehman affirmed that they must remain steadfast in their stance, even if abandoned by their allies.

He also expressed regret over the plight of farmers, insisting that those responsible should be held accountable.

Commenting on Imran Khan’s bail in the 190 million pound case, he remarked, “It is a court verdict and nothing else, as I am not a petitioner in it.”
