President for national counter-terror narrative under Holy Prophet’s teachings

Promotion of national language important to achieve progress: President

ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain Saturday called upon the intelligentsia of the country to join their heads to build a national counter-terrorism narrative as extremism was a cancer to imperil the national development and stability.
Addressing the annual International Seerat Conference held by Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony in connection with Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH), the president said the national narrative against terrorism was inevitable to fight the terrorism with unanimity of thought.
The event was attended by the cabinet members, parliamentarians, diplomats, religious scholars, students and people from different walks of life.
The president was accompanied by Minister for Religious Affairs Sardar Muhammad Yousuf, State Minister Pir Aminul Hasnaat and Grand Mufti of Kyrgyzstan Maksatbek Azhy Toktomushev.
Started by the spell-binding recitation of Quranic verses by renowned Qari Sadaqat Ali and Naat by Noor Ahmed Jarral, the theme of the conference was the ‘Guiding Principles or the national leadership in the light of the teachings of the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him)’.
He said as the whole nation was celebrating Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH) on Friday, the terrorists killed the innocent people in Pashawar and questioned as how a person threatening others’ lives and properties could claim to the follower of the Holy Prophet Muahmmad (PBUH).
The president strongly condemned the incident and sympathized with the bereaved families.
He said the whole nation was determined to eliminate the terrorism from the country and called for national unity to achieve the success.
The president, who earlier distributed prizes among the winning authors of the books on Holy Prophet (PBUH)’s life and teachings and anthology of Naats in both local and foreign languages, congratulated the ministry for holding the event which brought together the religious scholars from various countries to deliberate and present papers on the important subject. – APP
