The Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) has called upon its workers to converge in Islamabad in convoys from their respective areas on Monday morning to participate in the sit-in outside the Supreme Court, as announced by the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).
The JUI-F workers will gather in their designated areas on Monday morning and proceed towards Hakla Interchange on the Peshawar-Islamabad Motorway, from where they will collectively move towards their destination.
Haji Jalil Jan, JUI-F provincial spokesperson, informed Dawn that workers from across the province would utilize different routes to reach Hakla Interchange. He stated that workers from southern regions would commence their journey at 6 am, while those from Hazara division would depart at 8 am.
All workers will assemble at Hakla Interchange at 10 am, with district and divisional leaders leading the convoys.
The convoy from Peshawar will be led by Maulana Attaur Rehman, Maulana Attaul Haq Darwaish, Sayed Hidayatullah Shah, Mufti Fazl Ghafoor, Mufti Ubaidullah, Asif Iqbal Daudzai, and others.
According to a statement issued, around 10,000 activists of Ansarul Islam, the security wing of JUI-F, will also head to Islamabad alongside party workers to manage the sit-in outside the Supreme Court.
JUI-F has instructed its workers to bring necessary items, party flags, and banners with them. They have also urged the workers to maintain peace during the sit-in and closely monitor miscreants, as PTI workers posing as JUI-F activists might attempt to disrupt their peaceful protest.
