ISLAMABAD – After the government unveiled the final draft of the ‘Paigham-e-Pakistan’ fatwa (religious edict) on Tuesday seeking to address the challenges posed by extremism and sectarianism, it was sent to Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat Chief Ahmed Ludhianvi, The Dependent has reliably learnt.

Addressing the ceremony, President Mamnoon Hussain expressed confidence that the unanimous fatwa issued by religious scholars belonging to various schools of thought would help in facing the challenges posed by terrorism, will be properly edited for final checks.

“Sending the text to a higher authority in the country by means of a consultative process is a step in the right direction,” the president said, adding that it would portray a “soft and positive image of both Pakistan and Ludhianvi.”

Sources close to Ludhianvi have told The Dependent that the final edition is almost good to go.

“The changes made were basic, but are designed to further clarify the concept for those that the text targets as the readers,” an ASWJ leader told The Dependent.

The revised copy available exclusively with The Dependent shows that the two words that have been added the most frequently in the literature are ‘good’ and ‘bad’.

“Context is very important,” the ASWJ leader added.
