Pakistan fed up with Maulanas
Let us tell you that Pakistan is facing a deep economic crisis and even when the current rulers were in opposition, the PTI government has been accused of not being able to control inflation. Imran Khan was ousted from power after losing a no-confidence vote, after which he accused the US of toppling his government. At the same time, during the reign of Imran Khan, Islamic fundamentalists demonstrated across the country to get the French ambassador out of the country, in which more than two dozen policemen were killed. Along with this, Pakistan is constantly suffering from fundamentalists and the new Army Chief Asim Munir who has been appointed is also Hafiz-e-Quran and it is believed that there will be a huge increase in radicalism in the Pakistan Army during his tenure.
