Islamabad, December 27, 2020 (PPI-OT): Special Representative to Prime Minister on Interfaith Harmony and Middle East, Hafiz Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi has said the defeatist mentality has unleashed a hybrid war to create uncertainty, chaos and confusion in the country.
Addressing a news conference in Faisalabad today (Sunday), he said for the very purpose, divergent forces have been brought together under the platform of Pakistan Democratic Movement. He said that Pakistan is striking a strategic balance in the region and making substantial development on economic front. Special Representative said anti-Pakistan forces are using religious and political clout to fulfil their nefarious designs.
He said that allies of Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman utilised their cronies during their tenure to recognise Israel and, in this connection, a delegation was also sent to Israel. He said the government would never even think of establishing relationship with Israel until realisation a permanent solution to Palestine.
Maulana Tahir Ashrafi said due to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s principled stance on the Palestine issue at international level, the Palestinian President Mehmood Abbas, in his letter, thanked people and the government of Pakistan for courageous stance on the issue. He said that the government had also protected the legitimate interests of religious seminaries.
