He announced that the protesters will enter Islamabad on October 31. PML-N is supporting the JUI-F’s march too. According to a report published in this paper, the administration has decided in principle to prevent the sit-in (dharna) by the JUI-F even if it has to go for the detention of top leadership of JUI-F, including its chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.“In case of a breakdown in negotiation between the government and JUI-F, the law enforcement agencies will detain Maulana Fazlur Rehman with the key leadership of the party. “Maulana Fazlur Rehman could be detained well before the planned dharna scheduled on Oct 31,” highly placed sources in a relevant position in the Ministry of Interior said on the condition of not disclosing their identity.
