Islam religion of peace, love, tolerance, says Aizaz Ch


WASHINGTON: Ambassador Aizaz Chaudhry said Islam is a religion of peace, love and tolerance and those who commit horrible crimes and inflict suffering upon innocent people in the name of religion, do not present a true picture of Islam.
He was addressing a distinguished gathering at an annual dinner of Al-Qalam Academy here in Virginia.
The Ambassador underscored that we all should strive hard to create a peaceful world and key to achieving this most desired goal is to impart modern quality education to our youth. Ambassador Chaudhary emphasized that to inculcate high moral values, Islam stresses upon all human beings to get education.-NNI
