A joint statement released at the event said that Istehkam-e-Pakistan conventions, conferences and congregations entitled “One Nation, One Destination” would be organised across the country from March 1 to 30.
It said that Ulema and Mashaikh would support every good deed of the government and play their role of holding those accountable who would indulge in violation of the Sharia matters.

The ulema said that the success of Operation Raddul Fasaad was due to joint struggle of the Pakistani nation and the Pak Army against terrorism. “We salute the martyrs and Ghazis of Operation Raddul Fasaad,” added the statement.
