Chief of his own faction of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) Maulana Samiul Haq has warned former president Asif Ali Zardari against using improper language about Darul Uloom Haqqania.

“I will disclose some secrets about him if he issued any statement against Haqqania in future and his party will lose the support of European heads of state or government,” Maulana Haq said while talking to different delegations who visited his residence at Akora Khattak.

He also criticised Federal Minister for Information Pervaiz Rashid for terming religious seminaries factories of illiteracy and warned that he would disclose facts about the Pakistan Muslim League-N’s role during the 1977 election against his late father Maulana Abdul Haq.

Maulana Samiul Haq, who is administrator of Darul Uloom Haqqania, criticised the elements who opposed the allocation of Rs 300 million for his seminary by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.

“My father had won the National Assembly seat thrice from 1970 to 1988 by defeating the influential people of the area. I also remained a member of the Senate from 1985 to 2008 and did different developmental works in the area.

My son Maulana Hamidul Haq defeated influential PPP leader retired Gen Naseer­ullah Babar in the general election for the National Assembly in 2003,” he added.

The Maulana said his seminary’s developmental funds were worth millions of rupees. Darul Uloom Haqqania had built several roads and distributed transformers in Nezampur, Akbarpura, Amangarh, Chirat and other areas, he added.
