Pakistan Ulema Council's Maulana Tahir Ashrafi said imams [prayer leaders] could have "unprecedented influence" in bringing action on climate change.

But first, he said, "they need training to both understand and communicate the issues accurately in a country hard-hit by climate-related drought, flooding, crop losses and other problems."
"We religious leaders in Pakistan can talk about climate change with people as long as we become knowledgeable about climate change and its other facets," he maintained.
...
Ashrafi said one key to getting religious leaders to speak out on climate change is ensuring they get help to understand the issues in "the simplest possible language".
Letting leaders of different faiths learn what other religious leaders are doing on climate change would also be useful, he said.
To date, he said, imams in Pakistan have rarely been called on to speak out about climate change, something that "reflects ignorance about the unprecedented influence of the religious leaders", he said.

Ashrafi claimed that the CII chairman had opened a discussion on a matter that would cause unrest in society. "The CII chairman had brought up a discussion on whether Ahmadis are Non-Muslims or Murtads (apostates), an issue which has already been settled in the Constitution of Pakistan. We were opposed to reopening this discussion as it would cause unrest in society. We wanted them to clarify that this discussion was not included in the agenda by CII members," said Ashrafi. Ashrafi said Sherani grabbed him by the collar and tore it.

During a meeting with the interior minister, Maulana Ashrafi said he was against the use of such institutions for political gains. "We are against using a seminary for political activity or making it a hub of anti-social, anti-state activity."
