Quetta- Chief Justice of Pakistan Tassaduq Hussain Jillani said terrorism comes into being due to the culture of intolerance and we have to change this culture if we want peace.
Addressing a book launching ceremony on the issue of terrorism organized by the Baluchistan High Court, the CJP said that the culture of intolerance would need to be eliminated. He added that non-state actors promoted terrorism in the country and it was these same elements which distorted Islam.
According to the CJP these elements had created a mindset which had to be changed. He added that a murder of any individual regardless of their religious beliefs was the murder of entire humanity.
The CJP further said that terrorism had existed throughout history and in every religion. Chief Justice said that the intention behind declaring the current year of Supreme Court the year of tolerance was to develop the culture of tolerance on the basis of true Islamic identity and spirit. He also said that there was a time when Muslims ruled more than half of the world.
