LAHORE: Pakistan Ulema Council (PUC) Central Chairman Hafiz Muhammad Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi has said all religious and political schools of thought observed “Condemn Day” against terrorism, extremism and sectarian torture.
Addressing a Juma congregation at Jamia Masjid Khulafa-e-Rashdin here, he said terrorism and extremism could not be eliminated until a unanimous national thinking was not developed among the nation.
“All social and religious schools of thought are being gathered from a platform of National Reconciliation Council, ” he added.
