A shocking revelation surfaced when Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the chief of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), asserted that former army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa and ex-spymaster Lt Gen Faiz Hameed played major roles in orchestrating the historic no-confidence vote against former Prime Minister Imran Khan and the PTI government in April 2022.

Gen Faiz and Gen Bajwa Orchestrated No-Confidence Vote Against Imran

During an exclusive interview on Samaa TV’s ‘Nadeem Malik Live,’ Fazl disclosed intricate details, claiming that both Gen Bajwa and Gen Faiz were in communication with various political parties, providing guidance on the strategic aspects of the no-confidence motion. According to Fazl, the two generals actively participated in shaping the direction of the political maneuver, ultimately securing the support of key players like the PPP and PML-N.

Fazl’s disclosures have triggered a flurry of reactions within political circles. The PTI, in a social media statement, suggested that Fazl’s claims validate their longstanding belief in a conspiracy to overthrow Imran Khan’s government. Meanwhile, Marriyum Aurangzeb, the PML-N Information Secretary, refuted Fazl’s allegations, stating that none of the events he spoke about happened in front of her, and she was not part of the mentioned events. As political debates intensify and denials are issued, the aftermath of Fazl’s claims continues to shape the narrative surrounding the historic no-confidence move against Imran Khan.

The Political Fallout

Fazl’s account provides insight into the decision-making process surrounding the no-confidence move. Initially opposed, Fazl claimed that Gen Faiz encouraged him to proceed within the established system; despite his reservations, Fazl changed his stance when representatives from various parties approached him, emphasizing the alleged involvement of military figures in shaping the political situation.

The expose also highlights the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a multi-party alliance founded on common principles. Fazl clarified that the PDM was not merely a political or electoral alliance but a movement where parties continued to stand together despite differences, underlining the complexity of political alliances in Pakistan and the subtle relationships between different parties.
