Pakistan and Iran have discussed promotion of religious tourism, enhancing cooperation in cultural fields and strengthening the unity of Muslim Ummah against hostile forces.  

Iranian Ambassador in Pakistan Syed Muhammad Ali Hussaini called on Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Sahibzada Noor-ul-Haq Qadri in Islamabad today (Thursday).

During the meeting, both sides agreed that seeking guidance from Quran is vital for promotion of unity and integration of Muslim Ummah.

Speaking on the occasion, the minister said new Ziarat policy about religious tourism will be presented before the cabinet for approval next week.

The policy is aimed at facilitating religious tourism to Iran and Iraq.

Noor ul Haq Qadri said government and Ulema are taking swift remedial measures to frustrate the conspiracies of fanning hatred and sectarian violence in the country.

The Iranian envoy asked Ulema to keep an eye on the elements wanted to fan hatred and sectarian violence.
