MULTAN, Sep 23 (APP):Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi Wednesday warned people to beware of enemy sowing seeds of hatred to harm peace and tranquility in the country.

Addressing inaugural three-day 781st Urs ceremony of Hazrat Bahauddin Zakariya after giving traditional bath to the grave of the great saint, he said, the enemy forces were trying hard to breach the national cohesion through fake news to create
divide on sectarian and ethnic lines and nurturing their anti-Pakistan agenda.

The enemy attacked us last year but fled away after reprisal, he said adding that now its tactics are changing.

They are now trying to create sectarian strife. The country was being pushed into a hybrid war, he said.

He advised people to respect one another creed and faith and talk about each other with reverence.

He said, it was our fundamental responsibility to save ourselves from flames of the
fire being ignited by the enemy.

He said the course of tranquility comes through difficulties and added that one must move to gain spiritual serenity.

He appealed the participants to carry forward his message as the world was being pushed into new form of battlefield.

A psychological war was being imposed on us, he emphasized. He appealed Ulema to comprehend the conspiracies of the enemy and spread the message of peace and love among the people.

He was happy to see lovers of the saint pouring into the mausoleum to pay respect to the saint in great numbers disregarding difficulties. He praised Zaireen from Sindh who faced heavy rains that disturbed their life but did not forget to
pay respect to the saint.

“The love I find here was matchless.” Qureshi lauded the saint for advocating peace, brotherhood and love.

He hailed media and scholars as they had played ‘responsible role’ to hit back propaganda of enemy vigorously.
