Islamabad, Feb 18 (ANI): Another group of Pakistani clerics has declined to participate in the much-anticipated ulema conference in Kabul unless the Afghan clerics' council clarifies anti-Taliban remarks by one of its members in 48 hours.
According to the head of the Majlis Sutul Islam (Voice of Islam), Mufti Abu Hurraira Muhiuddin, the remarks by members of the Afghan clerics' council had put the fate of the meeting in doubt.
Muhiuddin is a member of the Pakistani religious scholars' committee, which met Afghan clerics in Islamabad last week as part of preparations for the ulema conference, the Express Tribune reports.
According to the paper, the cleric said that Afghan scholars' remarks against the Afghan Taliban have created a deadlock
He said that they have written to the chief of the Afghan Ulema Council Maulvi Qayyamuddin Kashaf to clarify the statements in 48 hours.
The move comes days after a council of Pakistani clerics announced a boycott of the ulema conference, which was twice delayed in the past three months due to controversies. (ANI)
