Chairman Islamic Ideology Council Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani has asked the government to allow opium-poppy cultivation (a flower processed chemically to produce heroin) for increase in revenue.
Maulana was of the view that Pakistan's economy is in ICU, and government improve it by hook or by crook.
Maulana Sherani said "Pakistan's economic situation is grave, and being an agricultural country we shall encourage the cultivation of high price crops like opium-poppy and tobacco. As a first step the government shall lift ban on opium-poppy cultivation, it will boast the much needed cash inflow."
Maulana further said "If the government needs any fatwa in this regard, then myself or JUI-F will surely help."
