Staff Reporter

Monday, February 18, 2013 - Lahore—Muslims all over the world must work for promotion of fraternity and brotherhood to live with dignity and peace.

These views were expressed by Nazim-e-Aala Jamia Naeemia, Maulana Raghib Hussain Naeemi after returning from Lebanon on Sunday.

Red Crescent had arranged the 15-day visit during which he delivered lectures, held meetings with international personalities and attended important gatherings.

Maulana Naeemi further said that Islam means peace and it teaches peace and said that all of its followers are brothers. He said Muslims should ignore all types of differences among them like colour, creed, race and sect and work to restore the glory of Islam in the world.

He said the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) must be strengthened and urged all Muslim countries to play their role for this purpose.

He said that anti-Islam elements would keep on killing Muslims by using sectarianism and other negative techniques until Muslims shun their differences and get united.

Raghib also condemned killings in Balochistan and other parts of the country.

He demanded strict action against people involved in killing innocent people.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Sunni Forum urged all religious parties and groups in the country to forge unity among their ranks to restore peace in Quetta and other parts of the country.

In a statement on Sunday, Pakistan Sunni Forum President Mufti Jabbar Chishti condemned the Quetta tragedy and sympathised with families of the victims.

“The forum wants authorities to take strict action against culprits,” he said, adding that all religious and political parties should work for implementation of Islamic laws in the country. “

Terrorists want to harm the country and democracy,” he said adding that attempts to delay general elections in the country would create unrest.
