It said it was aware that the Ramadan fasting was in obedience to the divine directive as contained in the glorious Qur’an.
“We appeal to the leadership of the NSCIA to continue to advise and caution the extremists who are not well grounded in the faith and whose wicked and ungodly actions are giving bad names to Islam.”
