Fanny Fayyaz represented the Youth Council where she was asked: Why were young people invited to turn on the chapter on religious harmony? She said Youth has a passion for doing something and an abundance of passion in this age. We see the youth in Pakistan being used to spread unrest. In the past they were used to blow up bombs and they took many innocent lives including themselves to heaven. Thankfully, it has been decided that Pakistan can also use its youth for peace. And now it is happening. The young minds of Pakistan are very rich. They are capable of bringing love instead of hatred, mutuality instead of fighting, love instead of jealousy and peace instead of insecurity and this work was done under the leadership of Youth Council for Interfaith Peace and Harmony Is giving
Governor Chaudhry Sarwar said in his speech that I am very happy to see all of you young people working for peace and interfaith harmony of Pakistan. In fact, you are the real picture of Pakistan. Extremist elements are temporary diseases which cannot harm the existence of Pakistan while you are there. Together we have to highlight Pakistan's peace, mutual harmony and tolerant face. The teachings of all faiths or religions are for all of us and we all have to accept each other. This should be our priority as a united and civilized Pakistani.
Long live Pakistan!
At the end Youth Honorary Shield was awarded.
