Turkey's Chief Muslim Cleric Says World Needs Love To Overcome Chaos

ROTTERDAM - Head of Turkey`s religious affairs authority cited Thursday a world which was in pain and showed a way out of chaos through a life style based on love for humanity.

"Islam is a religion of peace and love," Ali Bardakoglu, head of Turkey`s Religious Affairs Directorate General, told a meeting, held in the Netherlands celebrating the birthday of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad.

"And, the peace and trust which the world needs could be reached by getting to know the mercy and the love Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad has bestowed," he said.

Bardakoglu also called for taking lessons from Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad`s life regardless of one`s religion or race.

"Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad left us a legacy where people should live in peace with all their differences," Bardakoglu said.
