PUC favours PM’s visit to India



LAHORE: The Pakistan Ulema Council (PUC) said on Saturday that it is in favour of the prime minister’s visit to India. “The prime minister’s visit to India will provide a boost to Pakistan’s role for peace at the international level,” said PUC Central Chairman Hafiz Muhammad Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi during a conversation with journalists. He said that Pakistan has always strived to improve relations with its neighbouring countries, but, unfortunately, the neighbouring countries responded to Pakistan’s positive efforts in a negative way. He further said that all of the country’s political and religious parties have voiced their support for the prime minister’s visit to India, which reflects the peace-loving ideology of Pakistanis. Responding to a question, Ashrafi strongly condemned the alleged burning of the Sikh holy book and said that such incidents should be thoroughly investigated. “It is the government’s responsibility to protect the worship places and holy books of all non-Muslims, including Sikhs.” Ashrafi announced that the conference on inter-faith and inter-sectarian harmony that was due to be held in Islamabad on May 26 has been postponed due to some unforeseen circumstances. This conference will now be held in the first week of June.
