“The enemies want to hurt the Muslims by creating divisions in their ranks; therefore, it is the need of the hour that the Muslim Ummah should get united,” he said in a meeting with National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, who called on him at the Parliament House here.
The Speaker, Deputy Speaker Murtaza Javed Abbasi, ministers and a large number of parliamentarians received the Al Ghamdi. After the meeting, the imam led the Maghrib prayers at the Parliament House.
Federal Minister for Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony Sardar Yousaf, Deputy Chairman Planning Ahsan Iqbal, Minister of State for Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony Pir Mohammed Aminul Hasnat Shah, Kashmir Committee Chairman Fazlur Rehman, lawmakers Ijazul Haq, Captain (retd) Mohammed Safdar and others were also present.
Earlier in a meeting with the National Assembly Speaker, Sheikh Al Ghamdi said deep-rooted relations between the two brotherly countries were based on strong foundations. He said parliamentarians and the people of Pakistan had great love for Haramain Sharifain as well as the Saudi government.
Ayaz Sadiq said the entire Muslim Ummah, including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Bahrain and Pakistan were facing the scourge of terrorism and extremism which had disrupted economic activities and the life of citizens. “I think this conspiracy has been designed by our common enemies who don’t want the Islamic world to develop and be prosperous,” he said. Ayaz Sadiq said the people and the government of Pakistan had greatest regard for Saudi Arabia and they will never tolerate any aggression against the country.
