Islam is religion of peace, forgiveness: Governor Imran Ismail
KARACHI: Governor Sindh Imran Ismail on Monday said that Islam is religion of peace and stressed upon the need to convey this message across the globe, ARY News reported.
“New Zealand prime minister has won the hearts of Pakistanis for her compassion after the mosque massacre”, these views he expressed while talking to journalists in Karachi after receiving dead body of Areeb Ahmed along with his family members.
Paying rich tributes to the New Zealand government, the governor hoped that courts will award death penalty to the brutal Australian right wing extremist, who martyred 50 worshipers in the Christchurch mosques.
He stressed upon the need of devising composite strategy to streamline non-registered and unlicensed weapons across the world.
The governor said Islam is a religion, which gives lesson of peace and forgiveness and halt terrorism and extremism in every form.
Eight Pakistanis were laid to rest in New Zealand on Friday. According to the Foreign Office, more than 20 family members of the victims flew to New Zealand to attend the funerals, which were attended by over 5,000 people.
Earlier, on March 24, thousands gathered in New Zealand’s cities to protest racism and remember the victims and as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a national remembrance service to be held later this week.
