The PTI’s central information secretary criticised NGOs and women lawmakers because of their their ‘silence over the JUI-F chief’s remarks’ against the participants of the PTI sit-in.Speaking today, Mazari said that the education budget of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had allocated 70 per cent funds for women’ education and added that, “PTI was providing women with their rights which was causing Maulana Fazl to have a heart attack.”
“Why are they sitting in assemblies if they cannot raise their voice for the rights of women,” she said while talking about the women legislators sitting in assemblies.
Mazari said that Maulana Fazlur Rehman had used derogatory language against women which was intolerable and issued a ‘final warning’ to the JUI-F chief.
She said that, “women would raise their voice against Fazl, take to the streets and expose his corruption in case he failed to curb his anti-women statements.”
The JUI-F in August had held rallies across Sindh against PTI chairman Imran Khan forhurling wild allegations and using unparliamentary language against Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
The rallies had also condemned PTI women workers and supporters for ‘signing and dancing in the streets of Islamabad as being shown live by TV channels’.
