Meanwhile, Maulana Tahir Ashrafi, chairman of the All Pakistan Ulema Council, urged the government to set up a team, including intelligence agents, to investigate and "get to the bottom of the conspiracy and expose the real culprits". "Our heads bowed in shame for what Jadoon did," he said, but added there are "many others active behind the scene and they should be brought to justice". Ashrafi said that Jadoon should be given the sternest punishment possible for maligning Islam, and also called for an unbiased approach to stem false accusations. "Pakistan's minorities are as much a part of the country as Muslims. We suspected foul play in the entire situation and at least our suspicions proved correct. Jadoon and all others involved in this shameless action should be held accountable and set an example for all future false accusers," he said. Ashrafi said he was willing to talk to all religious leaders, to form an opinion against the misuse of the blasphemy laws. "We will not allow anyone to implicate an innocent person because of personal reasons. Rimsha's case is indeed an eye-opener for all of us and we are truly sorry for all the agony and pain the poor girl has had to suffer because of a person who does not know the true basis of Islam," he said.

Afghan watcher Maulana Tahir Ashrafi, who had been involved in negotiations with former Taleban leaders, also described the report as "hilarious."
"When the jihad was on, US airlines used to offer 50 per cent rebate to Arabs who would volunteer to participate in the anti-Soviet war in Afghanistan," Ashrafi said.
Ashrafi, who is chairman of the Pakistan Ulema (Muslim scholars) Council and a regional government advisor, added: "The US military strategists were at that time living in Pakistan.They provided weapons and selected the location of training camps in Afghanistan."
He claimed that bin Laden was once the US military's "most favourite" child, who they held up as an inspirational hero to Muslim youth.
