Following Faith; From Confrontation to Compassion
January 10, 2013
 
The Department of Social Sciences at UMT organized a seminar to welcome the month of Rabi ul Awwal.The topic of the seminar was ‘Following Faith; From Confrontation to Compassion’. Orya Maqbool Jan, renowned writer and poet, and Yasir Pirzada, famous columnist, were the guest speakers.

Yasir Pirzada, while talking to the students expressed his concern about the growing violence inside our country in the name of religion and the denial of our people to recognize the culprits. Orya Maqbool Jan highlighted the importance of following the example of our Prophet (SAW) completely to resolve the conflict and confrontation in the society.

The audience, which included guests, faculty members and a large number of students, took active part in the discussion. Some students pointed out the role of external powers in exploiting the religious sentiment of the Pakistani people to serve their own interest in the past and promote violence in the country. Others emphasized the need to promote compassion in society which is the essence of Prophet ‘s (SAW) message.  All agreed that the message of Islam has to be correctly understood and practiced in order to bring peace in the society.
