The daughter of our Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is a distinguished personality of the Muslim world. She is a shining moral example for all the women across the globe. Her life, her teachings, her mannerisms and even her authority over her father, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is a precedent for us to follow even today,`` The Nation quoted Zardari, as saying.

The conference was organized by Imam Hussain Council to encourage interfaith dialogue and promote mutual understanding and sectarian harmony.
The main speaker of the conference, Lord Alderdice, said women can bridge the gap between various religions by following the footsteps of Hazrat Fatima.
The director of Al-Khoei Foundation, Yousaf Al Khoei, chaired the conference.
