In a press release, Bhatti said there was a dire need of interfaith, national and international harmony for the sake of peace in the world. “There is not only a need of interfaith and national harmony in Pakistan, but also all over the world.” He urged the international community to play their role to help end the genocide in Myanmar, saying, “It is our religious duty to support our Muslim brothers. No brutality in the world, the genocide of Muslims in Myanmar and other parts of world will be tolerated.” The minister claimed the violence in the country, whose people believe in peace and love, was beyond understanding.
