Religious scholars of different schools of thoughts while condemning honor killings said that Islam does not allow any sort of extrajudicial killing on account of religion, honor and prejudice.
Speaking at an “Ulema and Mashaikh Convention” organised here by Pakistan Ulema Council (PUC), scholars said that Ulemas and religious leaders in Pakistan should unite to eliminate extremist thinking, adding that extremist and radical mindset is problematic for the entire world and Pakistan.
Speakers said that extremist organisations like Daesh (ISIS) were being created and strengthened to defame Muslims and Islam across the world. They said that religious sections of society in Turkey played frontline role in foiling attempted coup against the democratic government.
PUC Chairman Tahir Ashrafi urged the Ulema and Mashaikh of Pakistan to come forward to educate youths of the country against extremist ideologies and fundamentalist thinking.
He said that India was among those major countries which were providing arms and ammunition to Daesh and warlords of Daesh were attacking all those countries which were against the regime of Bashar-ul-Asad and supporting people of Syria.
President PUC Islamabad Maulana Abdul Hameed Sabri, Vice President Punjab Maulana Nauman Hashir, General Secretary Tahir Aqeel Awan and others also spoke.
Meanwhile, Sheikh-ul-Hadish Maulana Ahmed addressing the convention said many conspiracies were being hatched across Muslim World with an aim to weaken the Ummah.
Amid the prevailing situation, Muslim leadership needed to pursue way of their ancestors and seek guidance from Quran and Sunnah.
Later, talking to media persons, Maulana Ashrafi said that killing of Qandeel Baloch was sorrowful and investigations relating to her killing should be held on merit.
Ulema and Mashaikh Convention also approved a resolution condemning killing of Mufti Habib-ur-Rehman and demanded of the Sindh Government to arrest killers of Mufti Habib-ur-Rehman. -Business Recorder
