Meanwhile, Maulana Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi, the Chairman of the Pakistan Ulema Council, offered to help the government in dealing with any religious seminary involved in terror activities or training of terrorists.
During a meeting with the interior minister, Maulana Ashrafi
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."
urged the government not to take action against seminaries under the pretext of law and order.
Maulana Ashrafi assured the minister of support in matters relating to streamlining of seminaries.
called for an audit of local and international funding for seminaries' reforms.
"We have heard that a huge amount is being received, but the output is not visible."
urged the government to reveal details of the funds received for the purpose and tell the nation where the money had been spent.
