Pakistan has been grappling with the crippling disease, with a recent outbreak significantly hiking the number of reported cases and pushing back the war against polio.

In a press release, the CII members backed the fatwas (religious edicts) by the Ulema/scholars and ensured that they will completely cooperate with them in eradicating the disease.

The CCI observed that negative propaganda is causing a lot of doubts in the minds of parents, who then choose not to vaccinate their children.
