RAWALPINDI: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazal (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Saturday said that they will retaliate in case of any torture attempt by the authorities.

Talking to media in Rawalpindi, Fazal said, His party will stage a peaceful sit-in and do not want any tussle with any of the institutions.

No institution has the right to stop us from availing our constitutional right, but the use of force against his party workers will not be tolerated, he added.

The government hasnt contacted us for the talks but we will consider any sort of suggestions by the government, he further added.

The rulers once used to say that if someone wants to stage a sit-in they will facilitate the protesters but now they are hesitating to face the masses, said Fazal.

Azadi March will be commenced on October 27, while the protesters will reach Islamabad on October 31.
