Ulema from different schools of thoughts Friday pledged to maintain traditional brotherly atmosphere and will not ‘utter’ a single word which might injure the sentiments of others.

The Ulema were addressing a seminar held under the auspices of Ittehad Bainul Muslimeen under the Chairmanship of DCO Muhammad Usman.

They said that Islam teaches tolerance, forbearance, love and affection and there is no room for sectarianism and terrorism in the society. They pledged that they would foil conspiracies being hatched by the anti-Islam and anti-Pakistan elements to pitch Muslim against Muslim and would keep vigilant eye over the evil forces. They expressed complete satisfaction over the National Action Plan and operation Zarb-e-Azab launched by the government to weed out extremists and terrorists. They assured the administration that they would extend their full cooperation for the maintenance of peace in the district. Prominent among those who address the seminar included Maulana Nasrullah Khan Bhatti, Barrister Syed Waseemul Hassan Naqvi, Liaqat Zawar Khanno, Syed Hussain Ali Shah, Hafiz Allah Ditta Sajid, Syed Usman Naqvi, Sheikh Muhammad Amjid and Syed Nasir Hussain Sherazi, President DBA Hafizabad.

Earlier, while addressing the meeting of District Peace Committee, the DCO declared that code of conduct regarding processions, public meetings and Majalis would be strictly implemented and no new route, procession and Majlis would be allowed. He said that with the cooperation of members of District Peace Committee the mischief-mongers and disruptive elements would be dealt with iron hands. He told the meeting that the District Administration and the police have made comprehensive security plan to ensure peaceful atmosphere in the area and has called upon members of peace committee particularly Ulema to cooperate with the administration for ensuring traditional peace and tranquillity.
