The British government has set an example of religious tolerance at the official level, which will further strengthen religious tolerance in the world, Renowned intellectual and Chairman of the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII), Dr Qibla Ayaz said.
He said this is an indication that the United Kingdom (UK) considers Muslims living there to be its part and that the Islamic motto is well-established in its society. Dr Qibla Ayaz said that the role of Lord Aamer Sarfraz in bringing religious tolerance and religion and culture closer in the UK would remain in the history forever.
In this regard, the Ulema community of Pakistan congratulates Lord Aamer Sarfraz, he said. He said the process showed that British society and culture has a respect for other religions. Chairman of Interfaith Harmony and Peace Committee, Syed Izhar Shah Bukhari said that this step of the British government would give rise to religious and cultural tolerance in the world.
He said the practice is an expression of the fact that British society and culture openly recognise other religions and cultures. Moreover, it is a welcome decision for the Pakistani expatriates living here, he said.
