MQI fostering engagement among religions & communities: Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri

Minhaj-ul-Quran International has taught its workers the lessons of peace, endurance and mutual coexistence. That is why MQI’s leaders and workers were held in high esteem across the world. Sahibzada Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, member of MQI Supreme Council, expressed these views in an interview with a local daily. He said that due to Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri’s scientific and logical presentation of Islam, the followers of other religions had also started getting attracted to the teachings of this great religion.

In a reply to a question, he said that whatever Shaykh-ul-Islam was doing was in accordance with the Holy Quran and Sunna, that is why, a Christian Church would be holding a Milad programme on March 5, 2009, in Lahore where its administration had invited Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri as the guest of honour at the occasion. He said this would be the epoch-making event of its kind. “If it was not a revolution, what else it was,” he questioned.

He said that the youth of Pakistan had made Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri their role model. Getting into corridors of power was not the only way of revolution. Rather it was to ignite the fire of love for the Holy Prophet in the hearts of the youth by transforming their character and brining them back on the right path through a permanent change was the real revolution.

Shahibzada Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that Islam had nothing to do with extremism, terrorism and fundamentalism. It was religion of peace and harmony. He further said that Minhaj-ul-Quran International had urged its followers to use their all their energies of head and heart for learning religious and secular sciences so that they could play their due role in representing Islam. Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, who is also pursuing his PhD on Economics from an Australian University, said that MQI was working hard for bridging gaps among different religions and communities through dialogue and engagement.
