PESHAWAR: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday said that there was weak and oppressed democracy in the world, adding that the rights of weak nations were being violated across the world.

Addressing a tribal Jirga in Peshawar on Sunday, the JUI-F chief said that everyone must play a role in the promotion of democratic values.

Speaking about the tribal areas, Fazl said that the elected representatives also regretted the merger of tribal areas, adding that more steps would have to be taken for the development of the tribal people.

He urged to inform the people about the usage of funds allocated for the tribes, adding that the decisions should be taken according to the will of the people.

The PDM chief said that International powers “want to divide us,” adding that the powerful impose their decisions on the weak nations.

The JUI-F chief said that the provision of shelter to the displaced tribes should be ensured. “At the time of the merger of the tribal areas, I had said to ask the people.”

“Do the tribal people accept the merger?” he asked and said that if the people accepted the merger then it was fine.
