MULTAN:


Sectarian groups and political parties are the real bone of contention among the Muslim Ummah, chief of charity organisation Jamaatud Dawa Hafiz Saeed said on Tuesday.


Speaking at a gathering in Kamonki where he was monitoring aid to flood survivors, he said that these groups and parties are airing and supporting difference within the Ummah. “JuD has always opposed sectarianism. We have to eradicate the politics of vested interests and sectarianism from our society,” he said.

JuD is the charity wing of the banned militant outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is blamed for the assault on Mumbai.

Correction: An earlier version of the story incorrectly stated that JuD is a charity wing of the banned militant Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. The correction has been made.

Only way to eradicate sectarianism is to convert all to Sunni Muslims.
