The conference strongly condemned terrorist activities all over the Muslim world and underscored the need for Muslim unity, and impressed upon all the lovers of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) to rise above petty differences and promote an atmosphere of love, tolerance and accommodation.
The moot declared that the Jamaat e Islami was not the party of any specific sect or school of thought. It represented all schools of Islamic thought and the Maskaikh were ready to work with it.

The JI chief, talking to the media after the moot, said that the seats of religious and spiritual learning were a big force and had played great role in the Pakistan movement. He said had the Soofia and religious scholars not supported the Quaid e Azam, Pakistan would have remained a dream.
Sirajul Haq said that for the last seventy years, Pakistan was being run by those who had shown loyalty to the British rulers and betrayed their own nation. He said that the Maskakhih gathered at Mansoora had agreed to the programme of the JI mission to end the hold of the dictators, feudal lords and v vaderas and for the enforcement of the Nizam e Mustafa. They had also resolved to pull the country out of regional, ethnic, and sectarian differences and to promote unity, brotherhood and cohesion in the society. He said the enemy was trying to weaken the Ummah by creating dissent and disunity among the Muslims and wanted to destrloy this country as it ahd done with Iraq, Afghansitna and Syria. Therefore, the shrines and spiritual seat s could be an effective force against the enemy designs.
Sirajul Haq said the JI wanted accountability of all the plunderers including those mentioned in the Panama leaks and other corruption scandals.
Relying to a question, he said it was surprising that the rulers had received steel mills as gifts. “We have been receiving nothing but dates and Zam Zam water from Saudi Arabia,” he said. He further said that if the rulers were involved in corruption, even the Qatar prince would not be able to save them.”

The conference noted that the Mashaikh and the Soofis were playing important role in the promotion of love, brotherhood and besides highlighting the teachings of Islam.
