They said the entire Muslim Ummah’s stance was loud and clear that they would not compromise on the security, sanctity and stability of the soil of Harmain Al-Sharifain. They also supported and endorsed the stance of Saudi Arabia on all the issues.
On the occasion, Ashrafi, who is also prime minister’s special representative for interfaith harmony and middle east and Pakistan Ulema Council’s chairman, said, “to get rid of sectarianism, extremism and terrorism, we had to disseminate the message of Islam in its actual context, which we received from the Holy Lands of Makkah and Madinah.”
He said the message of Islam was peace, security and moderation, and its teachings completely rejected sectarianism, extremism, and terrorism anyway.
With the advent of Islam, slaves and women got their respective rights as the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) taught to love the humanity, he added.
He said the situation of unrest in some Islamic countries was due to the external interference which should be stopped on immediate basis.
Ashrafi said Kashmir and Palestine were the two burning issues of Muslim Ummah, and they should be resolved as per the will of the Kashmiris and Palestinians.
He said the stance of Saudi Arabia on the issue of oil was in the right direction, adding that Pakistan and the entire Islamic world were standing by its narrative.
He said interfaith dialogue was also need of the hour. Pakistan had prepared a document titled ‘Paigham-e-Pakistan’ (Message of Pakistan), which has become a beacon against sectarianism, extremism and terrorism. The way Saudi Arabia serving the humanity was admirable and praiseworthy, he added.
