National

March 14, 2018

LAHORE: The two-day international Muslim women conference concluded here on Tuesday with the resolve to carry the “Paigham e Pakistan” (Message of Pakistan) to all four corners of the world, aimed at strengthening the family system and uniting the governments and nations for wiping out sectarian violence, extremism and terrorism.

Addressing the concluding session as chief guest, Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Senator Sirajul Haq said only educated women could ensure progress of society and the nation. He said there was need to organise the womenfolk at the world level against women exploitation. Sirajul Haq said Islamic system alone could guarantee the women rights. He said if JI came to power, women’s right to inheritance would be ensured, evil customs of Wani and marriage with Quran would be abolished and female education would be made compulsory.

He reiterated his demand that all those who failed to provide an affidavit of giving their female relatives their inherited property, should be debarred from contesting elections. JI chief said the West had deprived the womenfolk of the love of father, brother, son and husband and instead burdened her with the responsibility to earn her living. On the other hand, he said, the respect and status which Islam gave to the women had no parallel in entire world history.

Delegates from Turkey, Lebanon, Sudan, Sri Lanka, France, Indonesia, Jordan and Uganda attended the moot.
