MUZAFFARABAD/ ISLAMABAD: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry has said that no law can be against the Holy Quran and Sunnah in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. Barrister Sultan said this while talking to a delegation of Ulema that called on him here on Sunday. Speaking on the occasion, the president said that Seerat Conference would be organised soon to re-examine whether there was any law in the AJK that contradicts the Quran and Sunnah.

Hailing the prevailing religious harmony in the state of AJK, the president said that it was heartening to see that there was an atmosphere of religious harmony in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. He said that there was a dire need to keep up this spirit to ensure religious and interfaith harmony.

AJK president assured the delegates that the government would solve the problems of the scholars on priority basis. He said that in addition to increase in the salary of Qari, Khatibs other issues would be resolved.
