President Dr. Arif Alvi says both Kashmir and Palestine would win freedom one day as no community or religion can be suppressed by force.
He was addressing Paigham-e-Islam Conference in Islamabad today.
The President said Pakistan will continue extending moral and political support to Kashmiri people.
He said Pakistan has successfully defeated the scourge of terrorism and also proved wrong the false interpretation of Islam. Wearing the Palestinian-flag themed scarf, the President said the Jews must remind that use of force could not eliminate them in the 20th century.
Similarly, the freedom movements in Kashmir and Palestine cannot be ended forcefully.
Dr. Arif Alvi advised the religious scholars to spread the message of social revolution from the pulpit that has been the platform for social messaging since the early days of Islam.
He said the clerics must guide the people on social issues like cleanliness, water conservation and tree plantation for being the urgent needs of the country. Recalling Pakistan’s generous hosting of 3.5 million Afghan refugees, the President said the world must learn compassion and humanity from Islam.
He said the journey of social change would accomplish only after the introduction of uniform education system in the country.
Thanking the Saudi leadership for further strengthening ties with Pakistan, he said that he believes that no force in the world can harm Muslims if Pakistan and Saudi Arabia stood united.
Earlier, the President gave away shields and souvenirs to the visiting dignitaries and also received the same from Imam-e-Kaaba.
Addressing the conference on the occasion, Minister for Religious Affairs Nurul Haq Qadri said the clerics owe responsibility to create unity among the Muslims and sensitize them on country’s rules and regulations.
He said the government has resolved to protect religious seminaries and is striving for uniformed education system to uplift the seminaries’ students at par with other educational institutions of the country.
