Talking to the Ulema, Mr Hussain said that he valued their sentiments and thoughts. He asserted that he had always supported the truth without giving any considerations to the fall-out. “My parents had taught me to seek the truth instead of going after the majority.”
The Ulema assured their cooperation to Mr Hussain in his quest for bringing religious tolerance and sectarian harmony.
