Fawad Hussain Chaudhry—the Federal Minister for Science and Technology issued a statement in which he said that the fatwa-issuing clerics are the biggest threat to the country.
Mr Fawad, in his Twitter post, said that people from all the sects of Islam should perform jihad against this attitude as 75 per cent of problems in the country are developed due to such clerics.
The federal minister further said that the chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari deserves applause for taking a stand over this issue.
It is pertinent to mention here that during the All Parties Conference (APC), the chief of Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Fazlur Rehman said that Imran Khan—Prime Minister of Pakistan has committed blasphemy against the Companions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and this issue must be highlighted in the declaration of the APC held on Thursday.
While countering Fazlur Rehman’s opinion, the chairman of PPP Bilawal Bhutto said that it will not be allowed to use religion against anyone in the country.
