LAHORE, Oct 15: Sunni Ittehad Council chairman Sahibzada Fazal Karim urged all political and religious parties on Monday to close their militant wings for the sake of maintaining peace in the country.
“I demand all political and religious parties to close their militant wings,” the SIC head said, adding that the parties which had been coming into power again and again should let someone else rule the country.
Mr Karim, who heads a conglomerate of Sunni parties, was addressing scores of SIC workers who had gathered at Lahore railway station to welcome the participants of a ‘train march’ started under the Council aegis from Karachi on Oct 14 against the profane film, terrorism and US interference in the country’s affair.
He said those who loved the Holy Prophet (PBUH) would continue resisting those using various tactics to defame the Muslims and Islam.
“As the UN and the US have disappointed the Muslims allover the world by taking no action against the makers of profane film, we will continue our struggle to protect dignity of our Prophet by all means,” he added.
