LAHORE  - Pakistan Ulema Council Chairman Hafiz Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi alleged on Monday that some elements were trying to portray the Youhanabad tragedy as a clash between Muslims and Christians.  However, he said at a news conference, these elements would not succeed in their designs.

 He said Sunday’s attack was not on Christians, but on all Muslims.
