Addressing a press conference here at Jamia Masjid Al Mustafa Johar Town, he said that during the last two years, there was not even a single fake case of blasphemy registered in Pakistan.

He said that with the passage of some times, a certain class of people gets mobilized to create chaos and anarchy in the country, adding that the government was not thinking about changing in blasphemy act 295-C.

He said that Pakistan army was the most popular in the people, adding that nothing was important to a nation than its homeland and religion.
