FAISALABAD

Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FCCI) President Engr Sohail Bin Rashid has commended the foolproof security arrangements made in the largest province of Punjab by Inspector General Khan Baig and his team under the dynamic leadership of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan on the occasion of Ashura-e-Muharram. Evidently, peace could have been made possible in all the cities of Punjab province.

He continued that strict and satisfactory security arrangements and measures were also adopted in Faisalabad by Divisional Commissioner Akram Javed, Faisalabad DCO Noorul Amin Mengal, Regional Police Officer Muhammad Nawaz Warraich, City Police Officer Dr Haider Ashraf and his team to avoid any untoward incident on Youm-e-Ashura for which business community of Faisalabad was grateful.

He said that this heart-wrenching tragedy of Karbala was unparallel in the history of mankind and reminds of the ultimate sacrifices of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) - Ahle Bait and their companions for uprightness and glory of Islam. He said the incident teaches all Muslims to render sacrifice for higher values and triumph of goodness to preserve the honour and dignity of Islam.

It also teaches us that we all have to forget our petty differences and adopt the highest teachings of Islam as Muslims and frustrate the evil designs of those damaging the true spirit of Islam, he added.

Chamber Chief was appreciative of the role of all religious leaders to maintain peace on the occasion and pleaded to keep up the same spirit throughout the year. He urged that all the religious leaders should advocate for unity, brotherhood and oneness all the time and on all the occasions and we utilize all our energies to preserve the glory and dignitary of Islam.
