The United Kingdom-based scholar and researcher, Noor Dahri, who had previously revealed that the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, had sent delegations to Israel twice during his first two terms, has now made a shocking revelation about Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman.
In another interview with the Israeli news channel, i24NEWS, Dahri claimed that Nawaz Sharif’s second delegation to Israel had included members from the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F).
“When Nawaz Sharif was in power, he sent two delegations to Israel. One of them consisting of religious people, including people from Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman’s party”.
Quoting Dahri’s tweet, Muhammed Faisal, a Europe-based diplomatic mediator, endorsed the revelation and identified Ajmal Qadri, Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman’s close aide, as one of the delegates who had revisited Israel in 2005.
His tweet read: “Dahri’s statement is absolutely correct. Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s party leader Ajmal Qadri also visited Israel with the delegation in Nov 2005”.

Speaking with the Israeli news channel, Dahri questioned why the Vice-President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had deleted her tweet containing the link to his interview.
“I can name the person who traveled from Islamabad to Tel Aviv when Maryam’s father was prime minister. Instead of deleting the retweet, she should have answered my video and brought evidence if my allegations about her father were wrong,” he said.
While the revelation has exposed Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman who ironically calls Prime Minister Imran Khan a ‘Jewish agent’, Maryam Nawaz’s gaffe on Twitter has raised eyebrows, with people questioning why she chose to delete the tweet instead of countering Dahri’s claim.
