He informed that this major event will be attended by leading Scholars, Ulema, academics and researchers from over 12 Muslim countries.

AJK president on the occasion said that our Kashmiri brothers and sisters are facing Indian repression the likes never seen before. They, he said, are imprisoned in their homes and are being made to live without any basic amenities. He said that we, as an Ummah, must be unified in our stance and position when it comes to both the Kashmir and Palestine issue.
The AJK President appreciated the positive role played by the Chairman Pakistan Ulema Council in helping to highlight the various issues faced by the Muslim Ummah. The President also appreciated the Council for organising seminal conferences and rallies on pertinent issues including Kashmir and Palestine.
The President said that we as followers of Islam must be proud and never be apologetic of our identity. He said Islam is a religion of peace and it is pertinent that we as Muslims spread the true message of our religion and fight Islamophobia and other issues facing the ummah.
President Masood Khan praised the role of Muslim scholars in Pakistan for their positive role in unifying the nation. He added that the enemies of the Muslim Ummah want to create irreparable rifts in our ranks. “We must stand united and face this threat in a unified and dignified manner”, asserted the AJK President.
