SADIQABAD - A condolence reference was held in remembrance of former Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Qazi Hussain Ahmad and Naib Ameer Prof Abdul Ghafoor here.

Speakers at the reference organised by the Jamaat-e-Islami paid rich tributes to both the JI leaders who died recently. The speakers said that the leaders’ role for the promotion of Islam and their support to the Islamic organisations across the world would be remembered forever.

“For the unity of the Ummah, Qazi Hussain worked industriously and diligently. He made courageous efforts for the promotion of Islam across the world,” they said. “Not only of the JI leaders and workers, he was a popular leader of all the parties of Pakistan as well. HIs services will always be remembered.”

The leaders of political, social, business and religious organisations including JI district ameer Dr Muhammad Saleem, Abdul Aziz, Abdul Hafeez, Farooq Amin, M Saeed, Ishtiaq, Abdul Samad, Mushtaq Ahmad, Raees Muhammad Din, Rana Arshad, M Ismaeel, Sanaullah Faroqi, M Saeed, Fazal Mehmood, Ehsanul Haq and M Sharif paid homage to the great leaders. 

“The leaders made great efforts for enforcement of Islam and to strengthen the Tehrik Nizam-e-Mustafa and Tehrik Khatam-e-Nubuwwat. They worked for restoration of democracy and elimination of dictatorship from the country.

They also raised a voice against the acts of cruelties being made against the Muslims especially those of Afghanistan, Kashmir, Afghanistan and Iraq and supported all the independence movements across the world bravely and courageously.

They termed Mr Qazi and Mr Abdul Ghafoor leaders of the whole Muslim Ummah not only of Pakistan.

The gap because of their death could not be filled for a long time. They were the leaders who believed in resolving disputes through negotiations, said the speakers.

Later, the participants prayed may Allah Almighty rest their souls in eternal peace and give courage to their families and lovers to bear the irreparable loss. They also prayed for completion of their mission.
