Ulema Council terms demand for PM’s resignation a ‘joke’


LAHORE: Rejecting the opposition’s demand for resignation of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the All Pakistan Ulema Council (APUC) on Saturday termed it a ‘joke’, ARY News reported.

Talking to journalists, APUC Chairman Tahir Ashrafi said that the campaign against institutions and Pakistan Army was tantamount to enmity with Pakistan.
