Chairman of the Ruet-e-Hilal (Moon Sighting) Committee and Prayer Leader of the Badshahi Masjid Lahore, Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad on Friday made it clear there was no room for violence, murder and desecration of dead bodies in the name of Islam and every religion of the world not only denounced such acts of barbarism rather suggested exemplary punishment for the perpetrators.

Maulana Khabeer said this while presiding over the “Youme Muzamat-e-Saniha Sialkot Conference” (Condemnation Day of the Sialkot Incident) held at the Badshahi Masjid Lahore.

The conference was attended and addressed by Secretary Auqaf Nabeel Javed, Director General Auqaf Dr Syed Tahir Raza Bukhari, Pir Wali Ullah Shah, Allama Abdul Sattar Niazi, Pir Raza Usman Noori, Naeem Badshah, Allama Sajjad Jawadi, Pir Ali Raza Gillani and a large number of scholars and spiritual leaders.

They expressed their strong disapproval of the mob lynching of the Sri Lankan factory manager in Sialkot city Priyantha Kumara and urged the government to complete the trial speedily and award punishment to those responsible of such heinous act.
