Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali said that the country was passing through a very critical phase of its history. “Constitution has been amended with heavy heart because the amendment has affected basic rights. Now we are in a war-like situation and we are committed with the nation to win this war at any cost. Therefore, every patriotic and peaceful citizen has to play his and her role,” he said.
He said that he had more expectations in the Ulemas of this province that they would cooperate with his government to implement National Action Plan in true letter and spirit. “I am sure you would abide by the law under which Madersas are being registered and use loudspeaker sagaciously,” he said.
Mufti Muneeb Rehman said “the madares of Jamaat Ahle Sunnat believe in peace, tranquillity and inter-faith harmony. We are the first ulemas and religious parties which despite some reservations accepted National Action plan and cooperating with the government to implement it.”
The chief minister appreciated their gesture and said that it was very much clear that the madares already working in the province were required to be registered under the law and the prior permission was mandatory to establish a new madarsa. He assured the Ulemas to nominate a focal person on divisional level to coordinate between the administration and the ulemas for close co-ordination.
