He also pledged to provide free education up to the intermediate level for Christian children and to provide interest-free loans to affected young adults. He stated that for the girls whose dowry was looted during the riots, Jamaat-e-Islami would immediately arrange double the dowry, and they would also cooperate in the reconstruction of the affected Christian homes.
The Jamaat leader stressed that those involved in desecrating the Holy Quran should be brought to justice, and the government should take action instead of issuing statements. He expressed concern that incidents of Quran desecration had led to public outrage and had been exploited by malicious elements who had taken the law into their own hands. Society is experiencing increasing intolerance, which needs to be addressed urgently.
