Ajmer: Spiritual head and Dewan of the Ajmer Dargah, Zainual Abedin Ali Khan, on Thursday passed a resolution against terrorism asserting that terrorism in any form, from scaring to killing innocents, is un-Islamic and against the humanity. He urged followers of Sufi saints to fight the menace of terrorism and expressed that the country is reeling under frequent acts of terrorism by extremist forces, intending to create communal disharmony.
The resolution was passed in an annual meeting with spiritual heads of leading Sufi shines in the country, which was held at Khankah inside the Dargah during the ongoing 801st annual Urs of Khawaja Gharib Nawaz. While addressing the Sufi gathering, Khan said, Hindus and Muslims have to work together to get rid of terrorism. "I will reach out to religious heads of other religions to ensure that no innocent die and no culprit be left unpunished," Dewan said calling upon religious heads of other religions to unite and fight terrorism.
Talking on the recent developments between Indian and Pakistan post federal elections in the neighbouring country, Dewan said, peace-process between both countries was needed now. "Pakistan has to bridge the trust deficit after the beheading of two Indian soldiers and recent murderous attack on the Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh," he commented.
