The speaker Punhal Sariyo said intolerance is against the teachings of Islam as it always promoted extremism and created gulf among the people of all sects and religions therefore the philosophy of humanity based on love, peace and affection could not prevail in the society until and unless setting aside the extremism and removal of misunderstandings among the people.
Dr. Ashu Thamma said that conflicts and riots on basis of extremism always brought destruction in the society with promotion of terrorism and killing of innocent persons.—APP
