According to our correspondent, Naeem Ashraf Butt, the meeting between Nawaz Sharif and Maulana Tariq Jameel held at Sharif family’s Jati Umra residence in Raiwind, and lasted for about an hour.
“The meeting was not purely on religious matters but some political issues also came under discussion. It seems Nawaz Sharif wants to send a message to some quarters and seeking reconciliation with stakeholders in current political scenario,” according to Naeem Ashraf Butt.
