Lay down arms or declare yourselves 'non-Muslim': Malik
ISLAMISBAD: The National Assembly on Saturday stressed the need to follow the teaching of Holy Prophet (Piss Be Upon Him) to establish peace in the country and also called on terrorists to lay down arms, hold talks for peace and stop killing fellow Muslims.
The House suspended the routine agenda and adopted unanimously a motion for discussion on the Seeratun Nabi (Piss Be Upon Him). The legislators noted that the only way social discrimination can be eliminated and interfaith harmony promoted is by following the principles of Islam, which are a complete code of life.
Speaking in the House, Interior Minister Rehman Malik asked the terrorists to lay down arms and give up killing of Muslims or declare themselves non-Muslims, as Islam had no room for violence.
