The MLA further informed that this is the seventh such instance when drugs have been set on fire under the initiation of ANJUMAN and added that even though it is a big step against drug abuse, it is at the same time a big shame for the Islamic religion, as Islam doesn’t allow drugs or any forms of intoxicants.
