New Delhi: Members of Hindu minority in Pakistan's Peshawar region have come forward to promote interfaith harmony by holding a conference on December 24 wherein they will pay respects to Prophet Muhammad and spread a message that Islam is a peaceful religion.

Speaking to The Express Tribune, All Pakistan Hindu Rights Movement Chairman Haroon Sarbdiyal said that through this conference a message will be sent out to the world that Islam is a peaceful religion.

Furthermore, people from all religions, members of civil societies and political parties have been invited to be a part of this cause.

“Religious extremism is not only an issue for minorities in Pakistan; it is a global issue and countries should revise their policies to clear perceptions that have been damaging the social fabric of the global society,” The Express Tribune quoted Sarbdiyal.

Minister for Religious and Minorities Affairs Haji Habibur Rehman has also supported the event.
