LAHORE: The visiting chairman of the Iranian educational institutions, Ayatullah Ali Raza Arafi, called on Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Senator Sirajul Haq at Mansoora here on Monday and discussed with him the situation prevailing in the Muslim world with particular reference to Pak-Iran relations, and avenues of cooperation in education sector.

The newly-appointed Iranian Consul General in Lahore, Muhammad Raza Nazari, and principal of Jamia Al-Muntazir, Allama Niaz Naqvi, were also accompanying the visiting dignitary.

Speaking on the occasion, Senator Sirajul Haq said Muslim unity and unanimity of Muslim Ummah on all major issues was the only way to counter enemy conspiracies against the security and survival of the Ummah. He said that the enemy wanted to destroy the Muslims by dividing them through different biases and prejudices. However, he said, the Holy Quran repeatedly warned the believers that internal difference would weaken the Muslims and finally annihilate them.

Sirajul Haq said oppression, injustice and bloodletting was being spread in the Muslim world to carry out the enemy conspiracies and it was the duty of the Ulema and leaders to warn the believers against enemy designs, support the oppressed in every situation and unite the Ummah on common grounds. He said the current critical situation demanded that the solutions of the economic, social and moral challenges of the modern era were found out from the glorious and everlasting teachings of Islam, and added “we would have to become a model of interest free economic system for the whole world”.

Ayatullah Ali Raza Aarafi explained different academic and research projects being carried out in Iran and underlined the need for mutual cooperation and tolerance among Muslim countries. He said Allama Iqbal, Imam Khomeini and Syed Abul Ala Maudoodi, were the true spokesmen of the unity of the Muslim Ummah. JI naib ameer Hafiz Muhammad Idrees, JI foreign affairs Director Abdul Ghaffar Aziz were also present.
