Aneeq Ahmed stresses need for respect for all religions

Caretaker Minister for Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony Aneeq Ahmed has stressed the need for respect for all religions in the society.

Addressing a ceremony at Gurdwara Janam Asthan in Nankana Sahib on Monday, he said Baba Guru Nanak preached the message of monotheism and idolatry is not mentioned anywhere in his teachings.

The Minister said Baba Guru Nanak visited Saudi Arabia for Hajj and when he died, his funeral prayer was also offered.

He said Baba Guru Nanak was very much against the interest based system and he fought to eliminate it from society.

Praising the Sikh leader Harpreet Singh, Aneeq Ahmad said that he has translated the Holy Quran for the first time in Gurmukhi, which is a very significant work.
