KARACHI, Nov 14: Founder of Muttehida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain has said that preaching hatred or attacking non-conformists, desecrating their holy places, mosques, imambargahs are satanic acts and totally against Islamic injunctions.

Mr Hussain, engaged for the last 15 days in enlightening his workers, supporters and sympathizers on the true meaning of divine guidance, enshrined in Holy Quran, or taught by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), continued this exercise when he addressed them at the party's PIB Colony and Lines Area sectors late on Monday night.

He reminded his audience that nations imbibed with the spirit of power of judgment were scaling heights of glory, strengthening their defences, and benefiting from modern inventions. Some of them had become extremely powerful now as they had latest technology and weapons.

Against this Muslims who in their earlier period of glory produced renowned scientists and mathematicians, plunged into an abyss of infamy, found themselves at the mercy of others, and could hardly derive benefits from the immense natural resources at their feet.

The reason for that was their reluctance to try and unfold the secrets of success provided in their Holy Book or analyze its real meaning. Their misery was compounded by maulvi and mullah ism which was more interested in settling scores with opponents, non-conformists, or calling for stoning of mosques and burning of imambargahs.
