A volunteer of the Juloos said, “We have come out here with these messages to make the people know the correct teachings of Islam. It is mentioned in the Quran that if a person kills a human being then it is as if he has killed the whole humanity and if a person saves the life of one human being then it is as if he has saved the whole humanity. It is very sad to see some corrupt tyrants defaming the religion of peace by using its name in doing crimes against humanity”.
