Yousaf Gillani on Force and Islam in His Address to the Nation

May 7, 2009

We will not bow before extremists and terrorists... we will safeguard the interest of our people and the nation... The time has come when the entire nation should stand united and support the government and the army against those who were bent upon hijacking the Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Mohammad Iqbal... Such acts are being committed in the name of Islam that are bringing shame to the Muslims... There is no place for force and excess in Islam.
