Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi who holds the position of Pakistan Ulema Council’s head as well as member Islamic Ideology Council was caught with liquor in vehicle again, private TV channel Neo News has reported.

Twitter is abuzz with a range of responses, almost all mocking Ashrafi with his name trending for hours.


This isn’t the first time, Ashrafi has been caught with liquor before. Only months ago, he also appeared drunk in an interview to Geo News.

Neo News channel says Ashrafi was arrested but later released by Kohsar Police Station. Ashrafi is a vocal and controversial cleric who also appears on Express News’ Mein Aur Maulana show.

Update: Tahir Ashrafi has tweeted in his defense that he is in Makkah to perform Hajj for past three days and claimed that Neo News has retracted the original story. Guppu could not independently verify the claims. Ashrafi has blocked us on Twitter and we still went out on a limb to post his version.
