4-phase Peace Initiative of MYL successfully concludes
PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri launched a countrywide peace initiative
to protect the youth from the poisonous ideology of extremism and terrorism. Minhaj-ul-Quran
Youth League vowed to take this message of peace to every nook and corner of the
country. It held different events across the country in this regard.
Inaugural ceremonies of peace initiative were held in Karachi and Rawalpindi
in the first phase in which Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri put his signatures on the
peace resolution and thus formally launched the peace drive.
Peace training workshops were held in 60 cities under the banner of Peace Council
with an agenda to prepare the peace workers in the second phase. More than 3000
peace workers were equipped with necessary knowledge and information to promote
awareness about peace and harmony in the country. These workers are taking the message
of peace to every household.
A cycle rally was arranged in the third phase to project the peace initiative
at the national level. This rally started from Karachi on Nov 20, 2016 from Karachi
and reached Peshawar in a span of month. During the journey, it passed through 50
cities and raised awareness about the message of peace of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri. This
was the biggest every activity of this kind by any youth organization in the country.
The fourth phase of the peace initiative involved reaching out to the youth by
getting them to sign the peace petition. The peace workers formed teams and contacted
workers at a mass scale. Hundreds of thousands of people were persuaded to put their
signatures on the petition after educating them about the peace dividends. The idea
was to convey a strong and loud message to the UN and international community that
the people of Pakistan are peace loving, moderate, tolerant and hate extremism and
terrorism of every kind.
The peace initiative turned out to be a major success.
