“Jesus Christ is equally revered by both Christians and Muslims and his teachings of love, peace and tolerance are a beacon of light not only for Christian community but also for the whole humanity. There is utmost need today to embrace and implement the message of love and tolerance for a peaceful world”, said Ambassador Tirmizi.
