Islamabad: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman has issued a decree (fatwa) against Imran Khan , saying that vote to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief is `haram`.

The Daily Times quoted Fazl as saying that Imran was an agent of `Ahmedi` and Zionist lobbies.

Fazl also reminded that Imran gave a fake decree with the reference of Maulana Saeed Ahmad Usmani, who had passed away in 2010.

A few days ago, the JUI-F leader had accused Imran of being supported and funded by Ahmedis, saying that the PTI chief had promised to benefit the lobby if voted to power.

Fazl had predicted a bloodbath if Imran came into power.
