Extremism, intolerance major challenges


Senator Samina Mumtaz Zehri on Wednesday said the society would have to play collective role in curbing the rising incidences of intolerance and extremism which were major challenges for the country. She expressed these views in a meeting with a youth delegation.

She strongly condemned alleged suicide bombing in Karachi in which precious lives were lost. She said that such acts would not weaken the nation’s resolve against terrorism.

The senator said that extremism, intolerance and sectarianism were the major chal-lenges facing the society. She said that all sections of the society had to play their due role in tackling these issue.

Samina Mumtaz Zehri said that under a well thought out plan, anti-social elements were defaming Islam by putting the youth on the path of extremism and terrorism.—APP
