Multan, Pakistan, November 2, 2008--Hundreds of Sunni Muslims pack onto a train at the end of the three-day religious congregation of Dawat-e-Islami.

Leading scholar Maulana Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qadri closed the annual congregation of hundreds of thousands of devotees with a condemnation of terrorism, according to Pakistani paper the Post.

The festival is the second-largest gathering of Muslims in the world after the Hajj in the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, according to event organizers.
