Addressing the audience, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that Islam is a religion of peace, harmony and brotherhood. A true follower of Islam, he said, could not be a terrorist or a militant. He said that the Holy Prophet (SAW) came to the world as a Prophet of mercy and gave rights to all people without any discrimination of caste, creed, race or colour.
Shaykh-ul-Islam uttered the introductory sentences in the Gujrati language and said that “I am immensely impressed by the love of the people of Gujrat. I pray for their wellbeing and peace.”
