The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazzl (JUI-F) led by Maulana Fazal Ur Rehman has threatened to block the highway between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The party reportedly issued the warning after the decision by the government of Pakistan to merge Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, according to The Express Tribune.

JUI-F’s Fata chapter Mufti Abdul Shakoor said Sunday Fata’s merger with the K-P “is an international agenda which will not be supported at any cost.”

Speaking during a press conference with JUI-F’s general secretary Mufti Ijaz Shinwari and information secretary Jihad Shah, Mufti Shakoor said the party will stage a protest demonstration at the Pak-Afghan highway in Landi Kotal and a separate one at the Indus Highway in Darra Adam Khel simultaneously against ignoring the will of tribal people and imposing decisions on them against their wishes.

The party’s chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman had earlier announced that the party had decided to part ways with the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) over the implementation of reforms in Fata.

Terming the merger a global conspiracy, Maulana Rehman had said that the government had backed off from the promise it made with their party for not going ahead with the merger.
