Hyderabad: Speakers at a public meeting here on Saturday urged Muslims to rise above sectarian differences and shun un-Islamic practices. They were asked to forge good relations with non-Muslims and present a correct picture of Islam.

This was the central theme of the ‘60th Rahmatul-lil-Alameen’ Day observed by the All India Majlise Tamire Millat as part of the birthday celebrations of Prophet Mohmmed here on Saturday.

A large number of men and women gathered at the Exhibition Grounds, the venue of the function.

Abdul Rahim Qureshi, president, Tamire Millat, said there was a remedy for the ills facing humanity in the holy Quran and the teachings of the Prophet of Islam.

He threw light on various aspects of the Prophet’s life and urged the community to follow it in letter and spirit.

The teachings of the Prophet symbolised qualities of patience, perseverance, tolerance, love and brotherhood. They were all the more relevant today, other speakers pointed out.

Rally

A huge motorcycle rally was taken out by the Sunni United Forum, India, to convey the message of peace and brotherhood. The rally started off from Makkah Masjid and passed through Charminar, Patherghatti, Salarjung Museum, Purani Haveli, Kotla Alijah and Moghalpura.

On Friday night a ‘Milad-un-Nabi’ programme was organised by the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen at Darus Salam.

Speaking on the occasion, Majlis president, Asaduddin Owaisi, urged Muslims to strictly adhere to the teachings of the Prophet and bury differences.

No one could be a true believer unless his love for the Prophet was more than anything else, he said.
