Rawalpindi: (Parliament Times) Eminent religious scholar Syed Bilal Qutab has said that role of women in promoting harmony and tolerance can’t be challenged as being the first institution they can equip their children with the qualities of serenity and calmness which will lay the foundation of a strong and peace-loving society.

He expressed these views during a philosophical and intellectual lecture regarding the `Role of Women in Promoting Tolerance` which was held at Fatima Jinnah Women University, Rawalpindi in collaboration with Punjab Information Department. A large number of Faculty, staff and students were present in the lecture that was followed by a long interesting question answer session

While briefing the students about the concept of women and tolerance in Islam, Dr. Bilal said that Islam has given a privileged status to women rather than men. The role of women as a mother, daughter and sister is a blessing of Allah. He also shed light on the various teachings of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) with references of Hades and Sunnat in regards to the role of women in creating tolerance.
