He also shared a research paper on the same topic, maintaining that while the piece was written in reference to Pakistani society, its application, albeit with slight adjustments, would remain equally valid for other Muslim societies as well.

In another session during the same trip, he addressed a seminar hosted by NUPI (Norwegian Institute of International Affairs) on January 14, 2016 on the topic of “The Crises in the Middle East, Pakistan and Islam”.

Shedding light on the recent developments in the Middle East, he explained Pakistan’s approach towards the current crises and deliberated upon different policy options available for the country in this regard.
