LAHORE, Oct 12, 2020, The Nation. Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Interfaith Harmony Maulana Muhammad Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi on Sunday said that India is using Afghanistan land against Pakistan and the Ulema, The Nation reported.

He said that some people were arrested when they were planning attacks to target religious leaders on India’s dictation.
