President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Masood Khan has appealed religious leaders to play their due role to rid the country of the violent extremism by spreading the true message of Islam.
Speaking at ‘Paigham Pakistan Conference’ organizing by Ulema and Mushaikh in Muzaffarabad today (Wednesday), he said Islam is universal religion and Prophet (PBUH) was sent to all peoples of the world, regardless of their race, colour, culture and geographical location.
He said that people of Pakistan, particularly Ulema and Mushaikh are united and they would never allow anti Islam and anti-Pakistan forces to materialize their evil designs.
Describing the declaration of Paigham Pakistan signed by the religious scholars from all schools of thought as right step at right time, President AJK commended the efforts of Ulema and Mushaikh for bringing and maintaining peace and harmony in the society.
Masood said since Pakistan constitutionally is Islamic Republic, there is no justification of use of force or wage an armed struggle against the state of Pakistan to impose Shariah in the country.
