I am pleased to send greetings to the Minhaj-ul-Quran International Peace for Humanity Conference.
Your activities are also relevant to global efforts to respond to the threat posed by terrorism. Muslims have been among those hardest-hit by this scourge. At the same time, a very small minority of Muslims have perverted their faith to justify heinous acts, prompting calls for Muslims to condemn terrorism and suicide bombings. These calls have been answered in part by your founder, Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri, through his historic Fatwa on Terrorism and Suicide Bombings. This and other works of Islamic scholarship can help counter those who twist the tenets of Islam to justify criminal and inhumane acts.
I hope you will join these efforts, using your consultative status at the United Nations to participate in our work.
