ISLAMABAD: It is the Muslim world’s responsibility to foil all attacks and conspiracies against the Two Holy Mosques in Saudi Arabia and Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, clerics and representatives of various religious and political organizations said at a conference on Monday.
The conference was chaired by Hafiz Muhammad Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi, chairman of the Pakistan Ulema Council.
The clerics lauded Saudi efforts to secure and defend the Two Holy Mosques, and to support the Palestinian cause.
Proactive and practical steps are needed to thwart attempts to divide the Muslim world along sectarian lines, they said.
“A catastrophe is being carried out in Muslim countries by fanning sectarian differences,” Ashrafi told Arab News.
The conference demanded action against Houthi rebels in Yemen and their supporters for the launching of ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabia.
