APP April 05, 2024


Manshera district police held a conference of religious scholars on Friday to combat crimes in the region.

Prominent scholars representing various schools of thought participated in the conference.

Manshera DPO while addressing the conference emphasised the invaluable role of scholars, hailing them as the pride and assets of the community. He underscored the unity among scholars from diverse backgrounds, highlighting their pivotal role in fostering national solidity and unity.

He urged religious leaders to oppose social and moral transgressions while advocating for public awareness campaigns against criminal elements.

Throughout the conference, the critical importance of religious scholars in eradicating societal ills was emphasised. It was suggested that scholars utilise Friday congregations as a platform to instil moral values and societal responsibilities among the public. Additionally, raising awareness about the perils of drug abuse and its long-term consequences was identified as a key agenda. Furthermore, DPO Manshera called upon religious scholars to discourage the hazardous practice of aerial firing during Chand Raat, the eve of Eid. This plea was made in a bid to ensure public safety and prevent potential harm associated with such activities.

In response, the religious scholars expressed gratitude for the initiative and pledged full cooperation with law enforcement authorities in endeavours toward societal reform. They lauded District Police Chief Manshera for his efforts in organising the conference and reiterated their commitment to collaborating with the police for the betterment of society.
