According to Radio Pakistan, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal has convened an emergency meeting of Ulema belonging to all schools of thought in Islamabad today to discuss situation arising from the sit-in at Faizabad Interchange by a religious group in the federal capital.

According to Interior Ministry statement, final consultation would be held with Ulema to cope with the situation.

The meeting will also evolve a course of action to keep the nation united over Khatm-e-Nabuwwat issue.

Interior Minister has urged the religious group protesting in Islamabad to obey the law of land and call off their sit-in as the law regarding Khatm-e-Nabuwwat has been made more sound and effective.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, he said that no one can even think about compromise on the issue of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat.

The Minister said public pressure on the government is increasing and despite Islamabad High Court's orders, the government is avoiding to take strict action.
