PESHAWAR: Leader of Jamait Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) Mufti Kifayatullah has termed conditions set by Taliban as reasonable, and said these reflect their seriousness for reviving the peace.
Addressing a press conference here at Peshawar Press Club on Monday, Mufti Kifayat said negotiation process is very important and efforts should be made for its success.
Mufti Kifayat, who could not become a part of negotiation process as was barred by his party chief, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, said the demands of Taliban have subsided the fear of a deadlock which may have halted the negotiation process.
He said these demands are in conformity with international principles of ceasefire.
He also expressed the hope that ongoing talks between government and Taliban will succeed and peace will return to the country.
Mufti Kifayat opposed launching of an operation and said any adventure will not bring positive results.
He also expressed disagreement with contentions of Maulana Abdul Aziz who argued that Constitution is not in conformity with Shariah.
Mufti Kifayat said Pakistan’s Constitution is fully vetted and approved by noted religious scholars and there is no room for raising question in this regard.
He also stressed on implementation of those articles of Constitution with emphasis on practicing Islamic customs in the country.
