Chairman of MQI Supreme Council Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, while addressing an educational and training session of the women residents of Itikaf City, has urged them to focus their attention on the learning of knowledge. He said that the extreme attitudes building in the society are due to the lack of education and training of the women.
