In his brief chat with the media men and workers who came to receive him at the airport, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that terrorism and radicalism are global scourges and these cannot be eradicated solely through the gun. He said that there is a need to furnish intellectual guidance to the youth and revise syllabi at every level. He said that for this, a patriotic, sympathetic and sincere leadership is required. He said that PAT and MQI are working at every level to eliminate terrorism and extremism and promote durable peace in the world.
