Last January 8, 2019, The “Islamabad Declaration” was issued, in which over 500 Muslim religious leaders publicly condemn terrorism, violence committed in the name of religion and fatwa (sacred edicts) widespread by radical ulemas. The declaration was signed in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, during a gathering organized by the Pakistan Ulema Council (PUC). The initiative, according to observers, represents a turning point, especially in the attitude towards religious minorities and Islamic sects like the “Ahmadi.” In fact, the Declaration recognizes that Pakistan is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country, and notes that “it is the responsibility of the government to ensure the protection of the lives of non-Muslim citizens in Pakistan.”
