 The Muslim Council of Elders held a panel discussion titled "The Role of Religious Institutions in Promoting Peaceful Coexistence" as part of the Azadi Fellowship Programme, which commenced on Saturday in Islamabad, Pakistan. The event featured prominent speakers including Dr. Zia-ul-Haq, President of the Islamic Research Institute at the International Islamic University; Dr. Kamal Buraikah, Professor of Islamic Studies at the International Islamic University in Islamabad; Mr. Sardar Ranjit Singh, former Member of Parliament for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa; Bishop Samuel Robert Azaria, Director of the Center for Christian Studies in Rawalpindi; and Mr. Christopher Sharaf, Coordinator of the "Saiban e-Pakistan" program for Christian minorities. The session was attended by several religious leaders, intellectuals, academics, and researchers.

At the beginning of the session, Sardar Ranjit Singh highlighted that the Document on Human Fraternity, which was co-signed by His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar and Chairman of the Muslim Council of Elders along with His Holiness Pope Francis of the Catholic Church, represents a comprehensive and clear humanitarian constitution. He emphasized the need for religious leaders to leverage their influential roles to promote the culture and values of human fraternity, peaceful coexistence, and mutual respect, especially among youth, to ensure these values are deeply rooted from a young age. This, he noted, contributes to creating a global environment characterized by justice, equality, and brotherhood.
