LAHORE: National and International Affair Commission Chairman Eric Massey has stressed the need for inter-faith dialogue and unity of different civilizations.

In a statement issued on Saturday, he added that every religion was opponent of terrorism and extremism. “Christianity is a religion of peace and love and similarly Islam advocated peace and brotherhood but world powers had started a war against the wishes of the people for their own interests,” he stated. He added that the war in the name of religion or terrorism must be ended now.

Condemning the blasphemous act of French magazine, Massey said that the act of magazine hurt the sentiments of millions of Muslims across the world.
