Peshawar: Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) would organise a peace conference of ambassadors of Muslim countries in this Pakistani city to adopt joint strategy against terrorism in the backdrop of Peshwar school massacre.
"Time has come to take unanimous strategy and decisive measures to uproot the scourge of terrorism and extremism from our societies," Iyad Amin Madani, Secretary General OIC said during his meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Pervez Khattak.
The OIC Secretary General strongly condemned the Peshawar School carnage terror incident that left 148 people, mostly children, dead.
Expressing his deepest grief over the terror incident, he said the killers of innocent children and terrorists at large have no religion.
He said that massacre of over hundred innocent school children has also awakened the entire Muslim Ummah and a sharp feeling emanated that terrorism has become a menace and cause of weakness for the Islamic world in particular, he said.
He assured the Provincial Govt that his organisation would contact the victims families individually and would extend every possible spiritual, moral and financial support to them.
Khattak said his government will send a team of psychiatrists to help Peshawar school massacre survivors cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The OIC Secretary General said that Psychiatrists from Muslim countries would also be sent to Peshawar to help in mental treatment of these terror affected children.
He acknowledged that psycho treatment of children was a long and patience-testing task and OIC wants to help KP govt in this noble cause.
