Chairman MQI Supreme Council Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri has said that the MQI is endeavoring for a sectarianism-free Pakistan. He said that it is the MQI only that has presented an intellectual program for elimination of extremism. He said that Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri gifted the Muslim world with 25 books on peace building, stating that 600-page Fatwa against terrorism and suicide bombing is a courageous initiative of the highest scholarly nature that every Pakistani should read. He said that the recent publication of 8-volume Quranic Encyclopedia offers guidance to the Muslims according to their intellectual capacity.
Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri expressed these views while addressing the meeting of MQI Central Punjab.

He said that it offers intellectual guidance to the Muslims on almost 5000 Quranic subjects. He termed sectarianism as a poison to Islam and Pakistan.
Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that the workers of the MQI and PAT braved state terrorism on June 17. He said that innocent workers were mercilessly killed on that unfortunate day, stating that it has been more than four years since we have been fighting our legal battle and it was only recently that the new JIT was formed on the orders of the Supreme Court to probe Model Town incident. He also condemned the Sahiwal tragedy in the strongest possible words and said had perpetrators of Model town tragedy been punished, the Sahiwal tragedy would not have taken place. He said that it is lack of accountability that fosters lawless attitude of the police.
