LAHORE: Grand Mufti and Imam of Masjid Al-Aqsa, Palestine on Friday advised Pakistani youths to stay away from terrorist outfits orchestrating attacks on schools and worship places.

In his sermon prior to leading Friday prayers at Grand Jamia Mosque, Bahria Town, Lahore, Dr Muhammad Ahmad Hussain said those creating differences in the name of Islam had no connection with it.

He urged the people of Pakistan to stay united to unite the entire Muslim world.

Dr Hussain said the enemy was killing children, attacking homes and associating their actions with Islam, while it was a religion of peace.

The cleric felicitated Pakistanis for raising their voice for Muslims suffering in other parts of the world.

Dr Hussain called upon Muslims to connect themselves with the Quran to foil any conspiracies against Islam.

This was the second visit of any Palestinian mufti to the city in the last 76 years; the first visit was by then Palestinian Grand Mufti al Husseini to Lahore in 1938 when he met Quaid-e-Azam and other Pakistan movement leaders.
