MMA on the verge of split

November 14th, 2007 - 2:14 am ICT by admin  
In order to keep the alliance intact, a meeting of MMA’s Supreme Council has been called on October 22 in Islamabad in which JI along with other allied parties will ask Maulana Fazlur Rehman to either leave the alliance or stop supporting Musharraf.

MMA sources said that the stormy meeting would thoroughly discuss the dissolution of the NWFP Assembly after the presidential election, though the Jamaat had demanded assembly’s dissolution prior to the presidential election.

Sources said Fazl and his party members would also question the unilateral decisions of Qazi Hussain Ahmed on important political issues.

“Jamaat-i-Islami and Qazi Hussain Ahmed are trying to create a rift between the Maulvis and the military. My party is clearly aligned with Fazl and I think Qazi Sahib should change his behavior,” Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (Senior) General Secretary Qari Gul Rehman said.

He, however, said that MMA would not face any split due to common vote bank.

Rehman is the only senior member of MMA Supreme Council who had cast his vote in the presidential election in violation of All Parties Democratic Alliance’s (APDM) decision to boycott the election, the Daily Times reported. (ANI)
