Abstract

Interfaith harmony is an important requirement of the time because in our country, in the name of religion, the blood of the innocent is shed, while the fatwa of disbelief is not delayed for a moment in the followers of other sects. Has the issuance of fatwas of disbelief promoted religious harmony or increased the incidence of provocation? After much misery, our religious leadership has discovered the secret that instead of calling people of other sects infidels and arrogant, it is better to express one's point of view in the best possible way. After all, the religious leadership has come to the conclusion that a small section within each sect propagates extremist ideologies and hatreds while all are to blame. A 20-point code of conduct has been agreed upon for the promotion of Al-Masalak Harmony. The code of conduct signed by the scholars states that no school of thought will be allowed to make baseless accusations and speeches against hate speech, insults and others. No one will be able to insult the Holy Prophets, the Righteous Caliphs and the Companions. The Code of Conduct stipulates that no one has the right to declare persons belonging to the government, armed forces and law enforcement agencies as infidels.
