PESHAWAR: Peshawar police on Saturday issued a threat alert to Jamiat Ulema-e Islam (F) leader Maulana Fazlur Rahman.
According to details, the Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) Peshawar wrote a letter to the JUI-F chief and issued him a threat letter.
He had advised the JUI-F chief not to visit Peshawar but Maulana Fazalur Rehman went ahead with it anyway.
“Maulana Fazlur Rahman faces security threats and visited Peshawar despite them,” he wrote in the letter.
JUI-F leader Rashid Soomro demanded foolproof security for Maulana Fazlur Rehman, keeping in mind the murder of JUI-S chief Maulana Samiul Haq.
JUI-S chief Maualan Samiul Haq was assassinated in Rawalpindi, on Friday.
His son Hamidul Haq spoke to Dawn news and confirmed that his father was stabbed to death while he was resting in his room.
The attack took place within the vicinity of the Airport Police Station, according to police. He was rushed to the hospital after the attack took place but could not survive.
Samiul Haq was stabbed to death several times as his face and body carried multiple wounds. His guards were also shot and injured.
At the time of the attack, Maulana Samiul Haq was alone at home.
