He said that those conspiring to destabilize Pakistan will not be allowed to succeed.

Regarding maintaining peace in Muharram, he said scholars of all schools of thought must work together for inter faith harmony during Muharram, adding government agencies are fully mobilized to ensure law and order in the country.
