Jamia Ashrafia giving 'modern education'

LAHORE, April 30(Daily Times): Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi said on Sunday that students at Jamia Ashrafia were learning to use the computer and were being provided religious and modern education. He also said his family and Jamia Ashrafia went back many decades.

He told a conference organised to celebrate 60 years of Jamia Ashrafia that the madrassa had churned out good Muslims who were above sectarian prejudices and political affiliations.

He also said the Punjab government was constructing a Seerat Academy and Quran Complex on 42 kanals in the city. He said students would be able to get PhDs in Islamic teachings and Seerat (ways of Prophet Muhammad [PBUH]) studies. He said clerics had played an important role in keeping peace during Muharram. He thanked clerics at the conference for being present on the occasion and urged them to play their role in telling people about the real Islam. He said Islam's image could not improve without their help. Elahi denounced the bombing of Interior Minister Aftab Sherpao's convoy in Charsadda, saying terrorists were not only destroying the lives of innocent people, but were giving Islam a bad name.

He said Islam did not allow anyone to force his or her ideas on people. He said steps taken by the Punjab government to promote sectarian harmony had yielded good results and conflict been various sects had been eliminated.
