Da’awat moot concludes

Published October 21, 2002

MULTAN, Oct 20: The three-day sunnatoon bhara ijtima of Da’awat-i-Islami ended here on Sunday with a resolve to act according to the practices of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

The moot was organized near Shershah in the outskirts of city at a place referred to as Sehra-i-Madina.

Thousands of people from all parts of the country and abroad attended the congregation. However, the participants from urban Sindh outnumbered their fellow faithful.

Pakistan Railways had operated special trains from Karachi, Hyderabad and Nawabshah. Despite the gathering of an estimated half-a-million people, the moot remained peaceful.

Arrangements for women were made at Aam Khas Bagh near Daulat Gate where they witnessed the proceedings of the main congregation through on-line and internet facilities. All proceedings of the moot were relayed world over through the website www.dawateislami.net.

Da’awat chief Maulana Muhammad Ilyas Qadri spoke at the first and last sessions of the moot. He reiterated that Da’awat-i-Islami had not any political agenda, saying “politics isn’t a gentleman’s mess in Pakistan.”

He said the mission of Da’awat was to propagate the true spirit of Islam which was the acts of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
