Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Tuesday condemned the outbreak of violence between the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers and police outside the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) office in Lahore and urged the opposition parties to unite to “bring down the government”.

Addressing a news conference in the federal capital, the JUI-F chief said that PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz had telephoned him and apprised him of the situation.

Expressing solidarity with Maryam, Fazl maintained that she and Nawaz-league workers had been subjected to violence.

Quoting the PML-N leader, he said that the vehicle in which Maryam was travelling had been pelted with stones by the police as a result of which the windscreen of the car was broken.

Commenting on the NAB, he maintained that the anti-graft watchdog was an institution, which had been established for the purpose of seeking revenge and not pursuing accountability.
