Madaar: The point upon which we can revolve for refining Islamic Education
(APP): Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira said Friday those killing innocent people and destroying schools were neither deserved to be called Muslims nor even human-beings. He said this while addressing Iqbal Conference arranged by Darul uloom Muhammadia Ghausia Boken Sharif. “We love peace and the teachings of Hazrat Muhammad(PBUH) and want to win heart of the world through love and dialogue.” He said that Malala was attacked because she raised voice for imparting education to girls.
The minister stressed the need for promoting the true Islamic values of peace, tolerance and religious harmony in the country.
He said that in the era of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) non-Muslims were safe and secure in the Islamic state.
He said that today some elements were trying to impose their creeds on the others by the force of power, instead of the power of the logic. He said Islam spread through love and dialogue instead of force.
Kaira clarified that seminaries were not a problem, but some people were misusing the seminaries and it was the responsibility of the society to expose them and bring them to book.
We as a nation will have to overcome our weaknesses as we have left the path of Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet (SAW), he added.
He said we have a glorious past as we enjoyed respect in the comity of the nations but now we have lost the same due to our own mistakes.
“We will have to work hard and overcome our weaknesses and earn respect in the world.”
