EFSAS comments on Maulana Fazlur Rehman's 'Freedom March' in Pakistan


After initial objections, the two main Pakistani opposition parties, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) had joined several smaller parties in extending support to the Maulana. It is another matter that in part due to their apprehension that Fazlur would steal the political thunder, and also due to their traditional fear of the military establishment, which stood firmly behind PM Khan, these two parties balked at involving themselves too deeply in the march.
