Addressing tens of thousands of people at the ijtema conducted by Sunni Dawate Islami at Azad Maidan, Allama Azmi said: “Just check out the principles of witness in Islam, there are punishment for the witness who lies, but today there is nothing like it and therefore injustices are prevailing in our society.”

Like these, he said, many things revealed 1400 years ago but are applicable even today because human nature can’t be changed and these laws are revealed by the one who created this world. He said, “It’s like a catalogue for this world revealed by its creator.”

Maulana Shakir Noorie, Amir Ahle Sunnat wal Jamaat, referring to West, explained that Wealth, Material gain and supremacy does not mean Allah is happy with them and rewarding but this is a cause of major concern. They are responsible for Injustices, violence and lack of peace prevailing in this world.

He called everyone not to suppress the feeble and not to be arrogant if you are powerful.

Allama Nasim Ashrafi, from Africa, praised Islam as the best way of Life and asked every human “to understand and implement each and every part of Islam in their life for peaceful co-existence.” He also called Muslims to raise their morals and respect everyone.
